attempts with some hairwing salmon flies...(with reasonabel succes)
attempts with some salt water flies...
untill today (in whole my carrier) not one attempt I made for tying a fulldressed pattern - or it should be a 'grub' I tied...(with reasenabel succes).

The U.K and Schotland
my vintage gear :
especially 'short greenheart rods and short cane rods' (let say from 5.7 ft to a maximum of 7.6 ft like for instance a Hardy's Marvel rod)
my old English Eaton & Deller trout flyreel collection - it where the 2 names who did it like 'Bonny and Clyde' or my police gun 'Smith and Wesson'- who attracted me to this old bygone firm (the inventors of the first silk lines)
