    Hi Barry

    We did meet briefly at the BFFI when I was very interested in your pink prawn sea trout fly which you tied using Whiting spey hackles. I did take a photo and later added a comment to one of the blogs about letting me know the dressing etc but I am not sure where this might have ended up.!!!!

    Yours is a very busy blog site, well done, very interesting.

    If you can help with the dressing…great

    Thanks and regards

    • Hi Ian, Good to hear from you!
      The pink pig (Pattegrisen) is not one of my patterns it from a friend in Denmark called Claus Eriksen, and is one of the best sea trout flies around! I will be publishing a video on how to tie it soon, so stay tuned!
