Default Dry Fly Tie Along

There was talka while ago and now there is new talk in the fly swap threads about how some of these are missing. We have a salmon, wet/streamer and nymph tie along. Now its time for a dries.

With winter being soon, some of the bigger hatches will be dries. Lets get some input on what flies we'd like to see tied. I am more then willing to spear head the thread, taking pictures and doing the write ups. If you guys are interested, please post up and we can get this thing going.

For flies, I had a starting idea, lets see if we can add any others to the list.

1. Royal Wulff
2. Adams/Female Adams
3. Stimulator
4. Elk Hair caddis
5. Humpy
6. Hendrickson var.

Please Im open to suggestions, I think we can get this goin'.

I'll follow along, but unfortunately I'm missing a lot of the tying materials for the Adams and Royal Wulff. My dry fly hackle collection is sorely lacking.

Well itd be like the other tie alongs, we'll talk about for it a while, then we'll give every one a week or two to gather up materials and then we can start the flies.

I need to get new fingers first, and maybe a knew vice. The vise I have now makes things look a little blurry / out of focus. Will definately be reading though.
