The aim of this blog is to connect fly-tyers all over the world, to share, techniques, patterns, information and knowledge.

Tom Thumb

This almost forgotten pattern is one that should not be underestimated. Not imitating anything in particular, but can be fished in different sizes and colours under most hatches, turning trout and grayling on when other patterns just wont work. I will be publishing the full step by step later today.


Although deer hair is the norm for this pattern, this particular Tom Thumb I have tied using Klippspringer hair from South Africa.
