Re: Your First Fly You Tied
Ha! I remember it well. It was a TU beginners fly tying class. First fly was a weighted muskrat nymph. About a size 12; wrapped with some non-lead wire; muskrat fur dubbed onto black thread and a really poor thread head. It was supposed to represent a sowbug and now that I think back, I'm sure it did and I'm sure it would have worked, although I can guarantee I would have thought it too simplified, pretty early on and quit tying it. (I just might try one today!). I don't have a picture of it but if you look under your desk and see a size 12 dust-bunny, you'd get the general idea!
