  10. I tie flies that are not used much in America. I am Welsh, Irish and German heratidge. I have serval good books from a book company in the u.k. I will provide a link. Far as materials some are already in the USA. I'll also provide links I use to buy u.k tying supply from Tying stuff,- https://www.lathkill.com/index.php?shopping_cart=yes https://www.lakelandflytying.com/ Great source for birds with feathers. https://www.cookshill-flytying.co.uk/ Books https://www.anglebooks.com/
  11. I want to know if any one had experience with a rig kit called an ultra rig. I think people who bass with baitcasters with bass jigs is an example some can relate too. As some may know my tying is getting more wide every year. Meaning my flies I tie and different styles of flies expands every year I tie. So with that being said. I've been tying traditional steelhead/ salmon style flies and used some to catch largemouth and small mouth bass. But this year my interest is in things like trout spey, swing flies, shank flies, things of that nature. I was wondering if anyone on here who tie flies and jigs to see if anyone has tied these style of flies for bass. I'll put a link to the video of the ultra rig. Thanks everyone have a great day.
