Hi All,

I would like to introduce myself as a new member to the forum, although I have been signed up for a while this is my first post. My name is Bill Dalgetty and I live in Haddington , East Lothian. I stopped tying flies back in 2009 and all the materials etc were all packed away - nearly sold the whole lot a while back!!.After being inspired by the many wonderful flies on the forum I decided to have a go again, so pulled out some materials and had a go. Here is my first effort back at the vice, a little bit rusty but quite pleased with my first attempt back. Hope to tie a bit more in the future and be more active on the forum. 


Cheers, Bill.
