  3. Wow, – where have you been and why haven’t I found your excellent website before now ? Maybe blog sites on WordPress, (like my blog) are more difficult to find than those on the Blogger server ?
    Almost every fly here will be valid on the chalkstreams where I fish. From now on I will be a regular visitor, – want to sit and read every previous article but I will be late for work so I will do it later tonight. Thank you, I’ll be tying up some of your patterns this week.

  4. Thanks Robert, I’m glad that you find interesting info for you. I will make new articles, right now I have a wordpress problem but I hope I will resolve it soon.
    I like your blog, is very interesting,
