I was discussing salmon patterns a couple of days ago with some friends and was recalling that I hadn't tied such patterns for a while. In fact the last time I tied salmon flies was in preparation for my first and to this date my last salmon trip up north on the River Naver a few years ago. Therefore I thought I would tie some more just for fun as I haven't got any salmon fishing trips lined up but I would be available if the circumstance arises. So here is my first salmon fly for about three years. The Hillend Doubler! A wee bit rusty proportion wise it could have been done with a longer slimmer hook and a smaller head but fairly pleased with it. I will just need to keep practising.
