Luked: Looks like you were one tying machine today! All I tied were a few salmon flies, then watched the Super Bowl at friends.

Today I tied several leaders (ending in 4x tippet)......sigh.....and kept cutting the wrong ends on my blood knots (that's what I get for watching the Super Bowl instead of paying attention to what I was doing ), but yesterday I tied a few copper johns of various colors, black gnats, and griffiths gnats.

Stacked deer hair flies, then a clouser for good measure.

Default Re: what did you tie today

I am working on prince nymphs for the kids swap, Chris was stuck on the play station and did not want to tie today (until it was bed time, then anything to stay up longer).

I have tied up 6 PNs, but only 3 I think are swap material, a couple I got the wings upside down on, not sure how, maybe my eyes are getting old (older), a couple I got the wings too long.

I made the choice to tie these as my part of the swap because I felt I needed practice at tying in biots and, so far, have proven that. I will fish all of these, and pass a couple on to my buddy - they are fishable, maybe not perfect, but in a current, I think they will still work.
