Fly Tying: Roy Christie’s Reversal of Design

I have recently dabbled with reversing the tying direction of fly patterns. This experimentation resulted in a response from Roy Christie. He offered his site and it is definitely worth the visit: small stream oriented, just starting (although Roy’s cred’s are well established prior to starting his blog) and you just know it will continue to provide innovation and a fresh look at small streams and fly design.

The River Test (an Aussie’s Dream to fish fabled waters)

I crossed the river and only walked a very short distance before I spotted a school of Grayling and a very large Brown Trout tucked in against a bunch of weed.
 
I ran a weighted nymph past the pod of grayling a couple of times without a single reaction from those fish  That was until the fly drifted by that resting Brown, a flash and it was on, but not for very long because the huge fish simply headed for the weeds and it was all over.

 

Nice story by Mick Hall regarding his long journey to the fabled waters of the River Test. Isn’t the picture as idyllic as you would ever want? There is sometimes pleasure in paying for privilege and access…if one can afford it. If you can travel from Australia to England, you can probably make it happen. Very inviting piece by Mr. Hall and the Kossiedun is a very informative site re Australian entomology and fly fishing within the region and beyond.
