Cheers Jim aany tips will be taken on board mate. Hope the launce/sandeels worked for you.
Plan B - Poxy resin!!!!
Got some holographic eyes from my pal "manxman" - he has a caravan close to mine.Anyway have tied up some 6" launce with these and will also do a few in the same size with chain bead eyes and pass them on to Ian.
I know that goo goo eyes/epoxy resin kills the fish but how good in comparson are the holographic eyes and the chain bead eyes?

Jim you should see the size of the bass and pollack over the Mull of Galloway - it is not overkill I assure you.
Looking forward to getting your package Jim. Anything you want in return?
Have you mastered the "poxy resin" heads yet!!!!

due to pressures of work Im abit behind on my plans, went to work yesterday didnt come home till today. I see else where your looking for perch lures, the best ones Ive found are white, lindores loch in fife produces some clonking great perch, if you behave ill try and arrange atrip up here for you, Ive got access to some great fishing. I can usually get double figure trout, carp pike etc grayling to nearly 3 and some top sea trout fishing(mostly free) but when not quite cheap! "poxy heads" are fine,do you use one of those "stone fly" turners, Im thinking of investing in one. Do you think there would be much interest in a fly swapping club i.e. 12 members send two of their favourite tyings to each of the other members each month! any thoughts? same applies to allthe rest of the budgie drowners.

Thanks Jim, will keep an eye out for the postman. I've been off-line for a few days due to a faulty modem but I've got a new one now. Re the "Stonefly" turners - a pal of mine made one out of bits from an old microwave oven! The gearing for the turntable plate is just the right speed, better than throwing them on the tip eh? You could save a few quid if you're handy at DIY! I will certainly swap some flies with you, I had a great day on Saturday with an "Apps bloodworm" ---- it wouldn't be competition legal mind!

I find the apps gets alot off false hits when the fish just hang on to the legs! Ill send some that weve altered when I tie somemore. Try them in black with a green fluro bead , it works well. Just spent 1/2 a day out on alocal loch, hooked 6 landed one, thought I was going to blank??? the fish were just nipping the tail of my bunny leech then when I hit them it run, run stop and off!!! You may have got the bits, Ill be interested to see what you think.
