Tom Sutcliffe’s Site: Pleasant Inspirations

Over a year ago, Ed Herbst and Tim Rolston pointed me toward Tom Sutcliffe. At the time, my searching nose was pointed mostly toward NW Steelhead and Western Trout. Herbst and Rolston had been refreshing discoveries and Tom Sutcliffe’s work was equally rewarding.

This morning, I was searching Google Images for a mayfly emerger pattern, something simple to tie. I saw a somewhat unkempt pattern (my style also, my ‘impressionistic’ tendancies) and noted it was on Tom Sutcliffes site.

The point beyond Bob Wyatt’s pattern, is as I looked at Tom Sutcliffe’s site, I discovered excellent writing and little gems along the way that somehow are unique compared to much of what we receive in the FF info flow. Check out this section from a while back of Tom’s site and see if you don’t agree there isn’t uniqueness, innovation (check out the J Vice), exploration, openness, something different.

    It’s good to see South Africa featuring in the fly-fishing world internationally. Another blog to look at from this part of the world, is that of Peter Brigg (call of the stream), besides my own humble offerings http://truttablog.wordpress.com http://callofthestream.wordpress.com/

    me encanta… pruebala poniendo un tinsel dorado o berde por debajo del dubbing y hacer un dubbing menos espeso, que se pueda entrever el tinsel.

    I like this…I like putting a gold tinsel or berde (am assuming the ‘b’ sound is same as ‘v’ sound for green?) below and make a dubbing dubbing thinner, that can discern the tinsel.

    Yes, it is easy to cover that flash and segmentation of the tinsel/ribbing. thanks for dropping by….nice site too at
