I sometimes wonder why my boxes are full of flies which never get used? Do you have a selection of flies which only half – or even less in my case – only get used?
I found an old fly box a couple of nights ago and saw some flies I used to do really well on, pheasant tails which worked a treat. Buy simply changing the natural coloured herls to dyed and adding a little hot spot, it can really bring a fly to life. The below video shows me tying a personal favourite pattern, try changing the colours of your flies to see if they bring results!
