Ragworm (2) and sandeel
Here's a sandeel pattern (above) tied by Lindsey Clarke. What I really like about it is its slim suggestiveness together with the tough epoxy head, which last will help the fly to sink head-down. A small pull on the retrieve, and the fly will rock upwards again....
The generic fish-suggesting pattern (below in the shot) was tied by Rudy van der Meer. I promised him back in March that I'd give the fly an extended trial, but so far this season have wickedly failed to live up to my promise. But I shall.
