In the absence of any sensible chance of fishing the Monnow, Lloyd and I decamped to the Derbyshire Wye. We both fished your tying of the Greenwell/Adams variant, #16 and #18 almost exclusively. On the first day we caught 70 fish and on the second, harder day, 25 between us.
Every fly looked the business and floated perfectly, obviously proved attractive to the wild Browns and Rainbows and all were really durable – none needing to be replaced due to wear and tear, just angler incompetence.

Hi Gareth, Just got my flies. Absolutely thrilled with them, astounding craftsmanship, they make my existing fly collection look very amateur! I'm not even sure I want to put them near water! Thank you so much for the fantastic service!

I have been to quite a few of the evenings like the one that was held last night at the Hereford Fly Tying Club. Your one I will always remember, it was that good.
I must say that I found your approach wonderful. The whole room was captivated. A real skill you have there, and I know it has been brought about by hard work.
I said to the guy next to me "When he becomes famous, I will be proud to stand up and say, I knew him when he used to laugh at my jokes!"
Thank you for an inspiring night, and great artistry.

Just sending you some photos of the grayling Henry caught on Sunday using the flies you tied for us, He had over twenty grayling to 2.5lb.!! The killer combination being the Klinkhamer Special (#16) and the Bead-Head Gold-Ribbed Hare’s Ear (#16) fished New Zealand-style! Both flies where readily taken by the grayling at any time! His best run was four grayling in four casts!
We both had a great day which was made a lot easier using your great flies!!
All the best Adam & Henry.

Just a quick note to say thanks a million for a cracker of a day mate - I got more out of it than I had originally hoped so a massive thanks to you for that. I'm more psyched for GAIA now than ever.
Was great to finally meet you and am very much looking forward to getting back onto a South Wales small stream with you again in the near future.
Speak to you soon, and thanks again!
