great flies Jim, thanks a lot! I like the little booby, didn't think it would float but just tried it in a glass of water and it's fine. I'll send you some of my favourites soon. Cheers for now....ff2

you can pull these boobies abit quicker than the standards, hope you got the jist of the buzzer, start at the bend of the hook, the size of the rib depends on the space you whip at. It looks more impresive of smaller hooks, you can collar the thorax with holo or fluro both give subtle changes. Ive a few more patterns on the vice I just need to perfect them, when I do ill send some!

Just checked out your flies Jim,an interesting and well tied selection. Will try and see what the Drummore monster mullet think of your nymphs. Anything you want in return - could you use some holographic eyes?
