Bug Collars from Flybox create a vivid fluorescent hotspot

Bug Collars from Flybox create a vivid fluorescent hotspot

These add weight & make a pretty impressive hotspot. Flat 2.8mm brass collars which slot into a countersunk brass bead. Flybox or Veniards beads would be perfect to use with them. These collars fit onto both 2.8 or 3.2mm beads but probably work best on 3.2mm. Looks better with the collar slightly smaller than the bead, like you would tie a floss throat...which is essentially what they mimic, but much better![..]

Fario Fly certainly have some eye and fish catching patterns! Their patterns are often fished in conjunction with the Fario Bung, not a method allowed here or at many other small fisheries but an essential method especially on the larger waters.

Blyths Catching Patterns for Jubilee Lakes

Blyths Catching Patterns for Jubilee Lakes

Blyth Palmer always bucks the trend though. He had 13 trout last time he was here at the weekend and another 12 today. He had a lovely 5 pounder this morning but caught on his favourite pattern - the Fluffcat. Blyth has six favourite patterns he uses here but they aren't standard stuff. He's been kind enough to let us have a look. No emergers here - they aren't his style - but these are certainly deadly patterns. Left from top: Orange & Coral Blob; Yellow Buzzer - this has the finest silver[..]
