The theme for our September fly tying competition was baitfish, with Scott’s ‘ B.R. Minnows’ whitebait pattern taking out top gong. It is a very functional fly, perfect for fishing subsurface with little or no retrieve. The body was innovative, blending EP Fibres and Orvis Ice dub, which was then stacked, packed and trimmed to form the great baitfish profile. Well done Scott, and also to Nik B. with his second place BMS style patterns.
October Entries: The theme for this month is river mayflies! Send us two copies of your best river mayfly pattern, along with the ingredients list by the end of the month, and you’ll be in the running for our $50 first prize voucher, or the $25 second prize voucher.
Thanks, Daniel and Simone.
