Here it is the slide show that I've been attempting to upload since yesterday. Its a collection of pics from my trip to Loch Watten and the sea fishing my friends enjoy Plus a couple of pics of the salmon taken from the River Naver.If you are wondering about who or what is the musical accompaniment to the pics it's a song called "Me & Jiggs" from Josh Ritter's 2001 album titled , The Golden age of Rock n Roll. I do hope you enjoy the music as well as the pics. Please feel free to leave any comments , good , bad or indifferent
I have been at the tying bench tonight tying up a few Clan Chiefs. This fly is a favourite of mine. It is a modern day traditional fly created by an Orcadian man,John Kennedy. it was originally designed by him for migratory fish. It also has a good reputation on the mainland for brown trout. Its creator was clearly inspired by the Kingsmill - Moore bumble patterns. This version I have tied tonight is a little bit over dressed as it was originally intended to be tied sparsely. I will let the trout decide.
