Perchy Tandem Flies

Here are 2 Perchy versions of the popular tandem fly pattern.

Absolutely killer for Pike and large perch and can be tied in sizes ranging from 6 through to 4/0 depending on what size materials you have available.

The first one is tied using a size 4/0 eagle claw and EP fibres. The second is also tied using a 4/0 eagle claw and EZ body with an EP tail.
I brushed UV resin through the front of the fibres on the first patterns to help hold shape whilst in the water and prevent from tangling.

Tight Lines.....

New materials and flies!

Its been a while since I last posted on my Blog. Mainly because of work, christmas and family commitments so apologies to all my followers.....

I have been researching new materials and refreshing old ones to come up with a selection of flies for this years Pike trips. Stay tuned for pics and tutorials on my website

I have had some good success fishing the fly on a light spinning rod tight in the margins and have taken fish to 4lb (when the water hasnt been frozen!). Not the biggest Pike I have caught but a nice to be out fishing...

This is the fly I caught the Pike with.
