Seen a few reports mentioning this fly and would love to know what type of pattern it is!

Ah, then I hope Dave will enlighten me.
I'm thinking small spider??? (as in next to nowt).

With all these nowts and snots its easy to get a bit confused!Wink

I am not too sure what a Blob is.If i came across a hatch of Blobs do you think i would get away with fishing the Bibio to represent the Black Nowt. Cos ive not tied nowt for a long time and my box is full of Bibios.

Thanks for that Blackgnat.
The first one of them i was given was the flou green one.
Ray Hawkey who fished the Teesdale reservoirs told me they were the new kid on the block.
I gave him some of my Bibios in exchange.
The blob never worked for me ,but he told me the bibios were catching him fish at Blackton when it was open.
Ive made flies since useing fritze but i do prefure fur and feather to sythetic.Just me thats all.

Must admit- they're not my first choice but you can't deny they catch fish.
And my reluctance isn't because of purism- I will happily pop a Humungous on where there are wild browns big enough to take it.

I used to tie the montana with fritz when it came out. Claret worked well and the flou-green.
But now i just use cock hackles for the legs.
I got a bollacking of a fellow because i put tails on the blobs that i made for him a few years ago. I had got the dressing from Troutfisherman.
Thankfully the fellow watches cricket now and doesnt bother me.Laughing

They will all be tying the Black Nowt now Dave.
I can see it getting a mention in the Trout mags also.
I remember a fly called The Midnight Cowboy. It got a mention in Trout Fisherman.Dennis Clarkson was the inventor and he was a Northumbria season ticket holder.
He didnt catch fish at midnight, he was watching the film Midnight Cowboy while tying his deadly pattern.
Good job he wasnt watching Carry on Cowboy.
