I have never been fly fishing and I wouldn't know where to begin but I do love the flies that people use. I have always fancied making some. Who knows, one day maybe I will learn how to do it.

These flies were in a small box that I bought at an antiques fair (or was it a flea market???) last year when in Ruthin with GB. I wanted to take a good look at them and photograph them and was reasoanbly sure I could sell them on at a small profit in the Birkenhead flea market (which I did).


  1. I don't know anything about fishing either, but the flies are pretty.

  2. Aren't they beautiful?
    As a kid, I rememeber going into the sporting goods department of this big store with my father and spending a lot of time inspecting the fishing flies. I could probably spend just as much time today.
