red grub hooks.

I was in eyebrook tackle shop the other day, looking for hooks to tie large pheasant tails with when i found some size 14 "jardine grub/ sedge hooks.
looked great for bloodworm larvae and buzzers,was hoping the red would show through. which i think it does.
also tried to do a red diddy type of thing, not sure if i like it or not.
must be lots more uses for those hooks yet!

Fish , A Man Must.....

Welcome to my web log. If you have arrived here by mistake, go now!

If here by design, good luck. As Anglers we need more than most!

Here is my first attempt at uploading a photo of one of my trout flies.....yippee pc expert ,not.

Its a large heron herl buzzer, that works at "Eyebrook" . The trout seem to like it fished on the drop, which is hard for most anglers to do. not me though , i am lazy!

I hope this works as i am tired and off to bed. will start this again tommorow. All the best , dave
