Posts: 3Hello,

I've been a keen viewer of Troutnut but hadn't realised there was a forum. My name's Dave Wiltshire and I am from Bristol in South West England. I am a bit of small stream fanatic, love tying flies and have an avid interest in photography.

I have a website and a blog; the website being devoted to fly tying at the moment. Please have a look:

Very pretty flies, Dave, a nice blend of classic and modern patterns with a personal touch. They all look like they'd be very effective on trout.

Welcome.

Dave, enjoyed your tutorials, and picked up a number of ideas. One was the use of wire to create a rib on a brassie. I haven't seen that before an thought it was a superb idea. Thanks for sharing your tutorials and other aspects of your craft.

Welcome to the forum Dave , I'm a wet fly guy and I for one appreciate the work on your flies . I like the looks of the hooks on your CDC Dun , the shape of the point and the fact that it is barbless.

They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Yeah, John, some of those are the Partridge Surehold Lightning Dry hooks (SLD). I used them almost exclusively for my grannom patterns this spring and had excellent luck. The Tiemco 103 is a great looking hook also; I hope to try it in the future. Dave also uses the Varivas wave hook for his nymphs. I have one pack of them to try. Dave, do you like them best for nymph patterns? If so, why?

Hi Dave,

Very nice flies and photos. I have a long way to go behind my vice.

In 1997, I remember taking a break from driving, I think Fort William was nearby, and walking along a gorgeous small stream there and thinking about the fish that might be in the stream. This was after the first fly rod was handed down to me, but about a decade before I got into using it. I look back on that memory almost every time I'm on the water and want to punch myself in the face for not "knowing" back then. I have not been back. I had a blast over there.

Welcome.

Posts: 3Thanks for the warm welcome folks and the positive feedback.

The SLD is a great hook. My main pattern for tying dries. For nymphs I really do like the Varivas WB but also the Partridge BIN.

Looking forward to joinin in with this forum ;)

Amadak, why, but of course! After all, we were ALL new members once...

And, of course, your fishing interests are...? I myself am a "troutnut" who is really, truth be known, a "closet smallmouth nut"...see the post entitled "what did you did on Sunday evening?"...

No matter how big the one you just caught is, there's always a bigger one out there somewhere...

I too am a new comer to the troutnut forum! I am really enjoying all of the interesting photos and shared experiences!! Dave your sites are well done and your flies are like works of art! I especially liked your Hi-Vis / Balloon Caddis.

I too have a new site but I am gathering little known secrets and tips that people can have free access too, and have found some invaluable tips on troutnut.com. Thanks Dave for sharing and making another new comer feel comfortable in posting.

Best,
Bill

This is incredible Shawnny! Is this some sort of mantra they are sold or is this an embedded message from al quaeda?!

Maybe I should tell them I want to rent, "A River Runs Through It"...;)
