SEXYLOOPS IS 18!!!

Monday, 26 September 2016

On Thursday, Sexyloops turned 18 years old. It's a bit of a milestone! It certainly made me think for a bit. 18 years ago the Internet was pretty small, it had only been around for a few years, there was no Facebook or Google. It was pretty new (and slow) and back then I felt that it was important to be "up with the times" so I bought the sexyloops.co.uk domain and started a one-page advert for Flycasting Lessons, Instruction, Guiding and Tackle Sales. The only problem was no-one knew it existed! And so about 8 months later I wrote the "Fly Casting Manual". This was originally seven long pages that took 10 days to write. There was a lot of casting in the garden to try to work things out, and while much of it is out of date now, it has actually stood the test of time and it is in fact Sexyloops itself, and particularly the Board, that has outdated it!

Behavior Modificiaton

Tuesday, 27 September 2016

As a kid I was practically obsessed with the six-pound brown trout on page 156 of A.J. McClane’s epic New Standard Fishing Encyclopedia. I knew that my angling life could never be complete unless such a fish graced the end of my line. As it turned out, attaining completeness would require some behavior modification.

Fly Fishing On Facebook

Wednesday, 21 September 2016

Obviously facebook has become a large platform where fly fishermen from all over the world share their fly fishing. Since most of us have a family and a job life outside fly fishing this doesn't leave much time for other platforms like internet forums for example. So facebook maybe has become the biggest fly fishing community!?

No, I haven't wet myself.

Thursday, 22 September 2016

On my first dedicated flats fishing holiday I wore an old pair of training shoes. These weren’t a branded make, just a cheap generic running shoe from a high street store. I’d already had plenty of use out of them as I used to jog at the time, so I was comfortable with the thought of ruining them by wading in saltwater every day for three weeks. It turned out that these trainers lasted the course of the trip just fine, and they went on to be used for two further saltwater fishing holidays (as well as being used when washing the car and mowing the lawns in between). The reason I eventually retired them was that sand was getting into the padded layers in the sole making them a bit lumpy and uncomfortable (I’m sure the sand started reproducing in there as no amount of rinsing could get it all out).

sexyloops fly tying school - dubbing blender

Friday, 23 September 2016

Don´t throw it away. Keep the waste you have when tying. Why? The old is new. Dubbing specifically. Have I mentioned I use a lot of fur, mostly hare, for my flies? No? I am sure I have.

There is quite a lot of underfur and snippets left over. I keep them in small plastic pouches and make new dubbing with it. How? ...

Mackerel

Saturday, 24 September 2016

I've been enjoying the late, warm summer we've been experiencing here in Denmark during september. Unusual 25-30 degrees C earlier thjis month have kept the mackerel schools close to shore for longer than usual and fishing has been good.

Bluewater

Sunday, 25 September 2016

There’s something intimidating, unnerving, exciting, and inspiring about peering out over the gunwale and seeing only water. Turns out the vastness is 3-dimensional. Glancing at the sounder confirms that you are way out of your comfort zone. 80 meters. 150 meters. 500 meters. What does that even mean?

Ronan's Report

20lb Rainbow Trout!

It’s fair to say that I’ve never really cracked the canals! I’ve had a reasonable number of attempts over the years but the really big fish always seem to get the better of me. I’ve hooked them once or twice but just briefly. This time was different, this time I hooked 3! Two of which […]
