Perch pattern tying guide is my first ever tying vid, so bear with me. Tying methods is a personal thing I have found, what works for me; may not work for you. It took me a year of tying to find the way I prefer to tie my patterns, I took bits from various well known tyers and adapted to how I wanted things to work.
Below are direct links to the materials I have used in the vid.
You’re in the groove, your cast feels right & you know that this one is going to shoot exactly how you want it to. You let go of your line, watching it roll out beautifully ….. then see it stop way short & get ruined! You look down to realise that your line snagged a tiny bit of grass, weed, twig or that you have stood on the coils! It’s at this point you might want to look at getting a stripping basket or line basket (same thing). I use mine 100% when I go anywhere fishing for any species. It’s an absolute god send, no more standing on my fly line or line snagging a weed ruining a cast and If you’re a dab hand at a bit of DIY, you can make your own for less than the cheapest is available Online (At date of this article).
