  1. Morning Barry,
    I really enjoy your site but cannot keep up with all your patterns due to a lack of ability (I am a very late convert to the ‘gentle art’) and materials. Although I am gradually building up a stock.
    I was very impressed by your last pattern the deer hair body mayfly,and wondered if you produce flies for sale? I can see this being a really good pattern.
    May I also thank you for the series on the “hare’s mask”, which was really enlightening. Although my wife is a bit dubious regarding the use of the coffee grinder!
    Keep ’em coming and roll on April. ( Mind you I equally enjoy pursuing the Grayling)
    Regards Mike.

    1. Hi Mike, and thanks. Yes it takes a little time to build up a stock of materials and a lot of practice to master the techniques! Yes I do sell flies, the detached body mayfly is Euro 4.50 each, there not cheap but they take time and are tied by me with the very best materials. If you would like to order some flies please send me a e mail order.
      All the best
