Dee Monkey Salar double Salmon fly

Here is my Dee monkey tied on a silver salar double.
The underwing uses cock hackles for support with schlappen and fox over the top for mobility, then the goat hair wing and some flash.
The underwing prevents the tail from wrapping round the hook when casting.

This fly is available from the blog, and is more productive in the bigger sizes. But I will tie it on any size /colour you may need.
Please e-mail me at ballingall512@sky.com to order

Sunray shadows

Well it's getting to to the time of the year where the water warms up a little and fish will move that wee bit further to take your fly.
Here are some sunrays that will get their attention.

They are available in a huge range of colours to suit different conditions

For best rsults fish them off a full floater or float sink tip, casting them square and stripping them across the water on the surface. Be prepared for vicious takes.

Baxter's babe Salmon fly



This is the baxters babe fly made famous in the last few seasons on the river Helmsdale.
It's a great fly for late spring through to the backend. The tungsten conehead allows the small slim profiled fly to cut down through the water and get to fish that are lying that wee bit deeper.
This fly works especially well on spate rivers.( available in any colours)

Arctic Flamethrower Pig salmon fly


This is my Arctic Flamethrower pig which uses combinations from some highly succesfull fly patterns. It uses the most mobile of materials tyed in the flamethrower style to prevent wrapping when casting!
This is a great fly for fresh fish.
