My first ever hand-tied flies on a vice,
On a Cabelas $35 fly tying tool set, made in India.

Worms and eggs.
I caught a lot of trout on this pattern, of course....but...
I must of lost at least three dozen or more of these lures to the river bottoms and trees last spring,
I will next season again I imagine.
So it's already paid for itself!

Anyway, these are a cool way to learn the basics.
Can't wait to start learning more patterns.

Next'; the Mysis shrimp...

"worms and eggs"...sounds like a great breakfast.

From humble beginnings come severe addictions, my friend. Soon, you'll be stopping by roadkill pulling tufts of fur or feathers from rotting carcasses (in addition to wondering if you can eat it still). Viewing "pretty birds" will mean..."I wonder how that will look tied to a hook?".

"HI, My name is King Joe, and I'm a fly-tying junky"

All: "Hi Joe"

King Joe Outa Here!

Argail I think it's cool that you liked that fly enough to tie it. you'll take fish with it no doubt. One thing of note and I could be wrong, but it looks like you wrapped the wire in the same direction as the pt fibers. If you counter wrap them ( wrapped in the other direction) the fly will last quite a bit longer for ya. I like the green a lot.

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

A few from tonight. Hoping to make a few more if I have time.

An odd little concoction. Eyes made of ceiling fan pull chain. Wooly bugger style and rubber legs.

This one is called a crackleback fly. I can do much better. The peacock herl went a bit crooked on me. Looks pretty neat though.
