Default Re: It's time for Swap #1 - Streamers

Woolies will be shipping out to Pocono this week. We will call it the Rookie Bugger as it is my first attempt at fly tying. It is a #8 Black body with an olive/black mixed tail. They look pretty good, and better than any wooly I ever bought from a fly shop so I hope you guys like them.

-30 hooks, fortunately tungsten beads can be recycled
-enough marabou and chenille for 30 woolies
-2+ hours of watching youtube woolly tie vids
-one long forum wooly thread here complete with an e-scuffle with calftail (we're fly tyin buds now)
-ordered a real vise which isn't here yet

2 EZ, I can now tie a pretty wooly in about 5-10 minutes
