Still no fishing, so let's tie some flies!

It's been weeks and weeks since I've been able to get out. First, a busy period at work kept me away from the waterside, then the wet weather scuppered me when at last I did get a few days off!
I have consoled myself in the only way possible - by reading lots of angling literature (more of which later), and by tying up a stock of flies for next season's assault - I include a few below.

Strangely, I always seem drawn to tying summer dry flies in the depths of winter. I presume this is because they subconsciously remind me of a time when I felt warm sun on my face - a time that at the moment, seems light years away!
