I think once a tie a long is set up a new thread would probably be best. I'll do a deer hair popper for the Bass/Panfish or Lefty's Deceiver for the saltwater. I guess if there's any interest we can work up a materials list and get started.

I'm far from the most experienced tier on here, but if you need help with one of the patterns I can do, I'd be willing to do one. I think it would be fun to do a step-by-step, but if more experienced folks can do it, they'd probably do better.

peregrines - perhaps you could save yourself some time if you didn't do materials lists for all the flies. You could let whomever does the step-by-step do it or just do the basic 6 of each category and then if others were added the folks who did the step-by-steps. That might take some of that work off you

I like the idea of linking sites/threads that have covered some of the terminology and other basics of tying. If you try to cover everything you'll have a hard time getting to through the actual tying. A step-by-step guide to doing a roll cast wouldn't need to cover setting-up the fly rod.

I'd like to join in and tie some flies. I am fairly new at tying and have a limited amount of various materials. So far I have been tying mostly nymphs and Buzzers. I am just now trying to tie wet flies. This tie-along seems like it would help me to learn more patterns.

Thanks, Dave

You should go through Allen's Wet Fly tie along. It is (I think) basically what this one wants to be. Allen did a fantastic job on the information and pics, plus you can see what we all tied. Post pics of your flies in that thread as you go along and get some kudos for your work or help if you need it.

Thanks Mudbug, I took a quick look through that thread and it looks great. I really missed out when that tie-along started earlier this year. I had just signed up as a new member at that time. I'm glad the thread is available to view. I'll have to spend some time going thru it. I still want to be included in this one...

Dave-- great to have you onboard. Everyone is welcome to jump in on this, it should be fun. Oh and Dave we have a wet fly swap that's just starting, feel free to sign up in the swap forum if you're interested.

Swirlchaser-- great, thanks for volunteering-- we should finalize the first 6 patterns in each group by the end of the week or so. (a Deceiver would be good in the first set of 6 patterns for saltwater, but a bass bug with spun deer hair might be a bit to difficult for the first 6 panfish/bass patterns and be better in the next set of 6 (patterns 7-12). Thoughts?

My go-to, hackleless dry fly has long been the "usual/haystack".
While the main (and only) ingrediant, snowshoe rabbit foot, is slippery and slightly difficult to handle, it's also cheap and easy (like me !)
