Never having used a Blob type before, I thought I would rattle up a few and give them a try. I picked up the yellow cactus and the Orange material from my local tackle shop. My son and I fished Achagour fishery near Nairn and we never changed fly. Two fish caught and in the bag within an hour then it was catch and release. Five further fish released many offers which kept the interest up. The fish were taking near the surface and would follow the fly a tell tale wake would show and a bite to follow, if it missed the fly it would return for another take. One fish had four attempts before it connected but was quickly unhooked and released.
When I get a chance I will edit this and put in the actual names of the materials used. Is it that the trout have not seen anything like this before that makes them take in such an aggressive manner, who knows but it was a most enjoyable day.

I liked the story Alistair. Blob flies are as much a mystery to me as they are to you. The why's and wherefore' s elude me. "Never argue with success" should be the motto I suppose.

Cheers Bill, really strange as they do not look like anything that lives in or around the water, but I am not knocking it, we certainly had fun.

This is what a blob looks like after three fish are taken. Scruffy but still hooking them!
