here’s a troutstract of the King of the Pond.
tomorrow, the Return.
taken in a small Swedish stream, i actually desaturated the colours while editing this image because the original looked so unreal. stream beds and how their colours interact with water combined with the light from above are just part of the dream…
from somewhere in the dark murky waters of Scotland, sent in by buddy Campbell Stewart for the FTLOW series, thanks !
the video below isn’t much of a review in itself but it sums up all the important features and the film’s lovely location is a perfect example of where this new Barrio line shines like a star.
its short yet very stabile and well proportioned head design lets anglers of all levels easily get the fly where it should go in these tight spaces, whether we’re using aerial or rolls or spey casts.
i used this line model extensively throughout the past season in 3, 4 and 5wts and the great first impressions with each one haven’t changed a bit: i very highly recommend it.
available in tan or light olive from sizes 1 to 5, click either pic for more info and user reviews on the Barrio site.
at 27£ ( 34€ – 43US$) including fast shipping anywhere in the world this one’s a no brainer.
a very lovely fall-time Water Swirl sent in by Craig Buckbee for the FTLOW collection. enjoy !

another great tying tutorial from Tim Flagler at Tightlinevideo
these little beauties are all about these days and apart from admiring their cuteness, as trout fishers one of the better things we can do is try to use that cuteness to try to entice some fish before winter sets in.
Tim’s video shows how to construct a very lively and durable wet imitation to be fished as all wets, upstream, across or on the swing. fish it on its own or as a dropper from a nymph or dry. enjoy, and happy catches !
