Default Tie Stream side?

Do you ever tie flies stream side to match a hatch?

I don't. The areas I fish have well published hatch charts and I don't really have the need to. I know a lot of folks do tie stream side.

Nope. Never. It might be a good thing to try, though. With all those fish gathering to laugh at me I'd probably be able to just scoop up a few with the landing net if I was quick enough...

I do if we are on a several day trip. I find ONE fly that is working killer, I will tie up a bunch for the whole party.
I have even used a leatherman tool as a vise to do this.

That's cool! The other day I was day dreaming wondering what common house hold tools and materials one could use in a pinch to make a fly.

I have never tied streamside. I have come prepared many times, but it has never come too that. I would like to know how many I have tied in hotel rooms, under crappy light, with my drunk buddies telling me how many huge fish they caught.

Once on a high lake, (11,000ft) we found some very large Golden trout who would only eat large Goldenstone nymphs!! We had one between the two of us. Fisticuffs were in the making, but we avoided blood by clipping material from a tan Patagonia pile jacket, using sewing thread, and hemostats for a vice. We stripped a few streamers of their feathers, and friendship saved. Since then, a tying kit always goes with me. Sometimes you see fish feeding on things not in your box, often I improve on patterns that I did have.

Time on the stream is too precious to do anything but fish. I've never tied at streamside- the closest I've come is snipping and trimming flies on-stream. But I usually lug along tying stuff to tie at night at camp or wherever I'm staying if the trip is over several days. Aside from giving you something to do if you get weathered out, it also let's you tie up more of stuff that has been working and gives a chance to tie up stuff that might be worth trying based on unexpected stream conditions etc. or to replicate a hot fly

Love to tie but mostly do so at camp or home. Live close enough that I have come off the river to tie and then gone back.
Thanks,
Tim

i have carried a kit to tie with after fishing. Sometimes a B.W.O. is a different size or shade of color, and the fish know it..same goes for the salt to..

Not on day trips. But when I am on the road for a few days of fishing, I will put together a small tying kit that I put in a laptop computer carrying case and bring with me. Joni, that's a great idea using a multitool. I had to use a pair of locking pliers (vise grips), the long nose model once and it worked pretty good.
