Sewin and salmon flies, every one wants flies.

 Well all hell has let loose, fishing season is here. and every one wants flies right now!!, i have not stop tying for weeks. but did get round to tying a few for myself this morning, the ones in my hand are a few. for a fishing trip tomorrow on the river Towy, there have been a few caught. even in the cold weather we have been having, it does not worry the cold. as if the cold has been with use for some time the fish get use to it, it the weather that cant make up its mind. and being cold one day and cold the next, is what kills the fishing. in this weather, get your fly down to were the fish are laying and you could have a take. and there is nothing like having a good sewin this time of the year, a nice fresh bar of silver. that why i have tied the flies in my had on copper tubes, in sizes 1/2" , 3/4" & 1" inch plus a good sinking line you are half way there. but it does help to know also were fish hold up, water craft being a big part of sewin and salmon fishing.
