Ok Folks, whilst fishing is suspended I am running a competition for “The Best Tied Fly”.  The fly has to be a salmon, grilse or sea trout pattern. It must be tied by yourself and include a photograph with a short description of the hook and the materials used. Post your entry to my facebook page below. I will put up a prize of a dozen flies tied by my good self for the winner. Competition will run until fishing resumes at which time I will pick a winner so get tying!

Please post your entry to my Facebook Page “River Leven Rep” at : https://www.facebook.com/River-Leven-Rep-1072388082941444/

I will start things off with the fly below:


Grilse Fly

Hook Fulling Mill Magni gold size 10

Gold body / gold rib with wire

Yellow hackle

Mix of yellow bucktail with black fox wing

Orange Hackle

JC. Finished with fire orange head


Happy tying,
