New Materials - Creature Skin and BIG Chenilles!

Well, I should be fishing with the PFFA on Mentieth today but as I had so much work on (along with the mother of all colds) I had to cancel last minute.

I will add at this point that yes, I am bitter :)

Anyway, I've added a few products to the site today that should prove of interest to you Pike Fly Tyers out there.

Greg sent me a few samples of new pike fly patterns he had been working on, and I must say that I am very impressed. I am probably his second biggest critic ( he is the first ) but when I opened the parcel that he had sent me my jaw dropped. His new Creature Skin flies are stunning.

Pike Flies

They are made using one of our new materials called Creature Skin.

It's a fantastic material that you can pull into all manner of fishy type body shapes. Greg had added a foam body underneath to make a floating pattern. Great fished on a sinking line!

He is currently working on a range of flies and a tutorial video on how to use it so watch this space!

 

The other things I have added has been a new range of 32mm Chenille. It's top notch stuff and a couple of turn makes a fuzzy head, as can be seen on our Scud pike flies.

A couple more turns and you have a body. It's brilliant for making bodies quickly. They can be easily trimmed into shape after.

Anyway, I'm off to sulk a bit in front of the fire with some tissues......

No, No. . . . . .!!!!!!

They are for my nose!

Tight lines,

Ben
