hey, just got into the hobby. caught my first fish this summer and decided to start tying. My first ones i tied with just hands on huge hooks and look awful so I'll show you some of my first with tools. I'm not very good with proportions and I've got no dry fly hackle but I'd really appreciate advice.

the hopper was my third fly tied without a vice or anything. its also been used and was nibbled at a bit. closest of my own flies to catching one.

Hello and welcome to the group,

You will be pleased to find that the members here speak your language and will be interested in hearing your input. Your flies show great promise.

It is always helpful to tell us where you live and what your primary game fish is. That way we know which dialect of fishing you will be speaking.

Welcome mepeterser!

If you can even tie thread evenly on a hook without using a vise, then you'll find that your tying skills will develop exponentially with your "in vise" flies.

Nice flies for first attempts. I think that you'll be getting more than a few nibbles on them - soon.

Great start mepeterser, you'll find lots of help, opinions and input here so welcome and have fun. If you want, be more specific with tying questions you may have. There are great folks here and have helped me for sure. If you haven't found and read already, Mark (peregrines) keeps a nice running list of tying tips (Fly tying tips sticky).

Mepete-

Hey, welcome to the forum, and nice job on the flies. If you haven't already, take a browse through some of the posts on here-- there're a lot of posts from folks just getting started, and some great advice on sites for step by steps (like Charlie's FlyBox - Metro Denver, Colorado's Best Fly Fishing Retailer (flyshop) with online Fly Tying Tutorials) advice on materials and books and all kinds of other stuff.

And feel free to ask questions and jump in on threads. There are a lot of very helpful folks here that can get you off to a great start.

As Ard said (Hardyreels) let us know where you are and what fish you're chasing.

thanks you guys! i've been reading around and i expect i'll do alot more. You guys make some really great flies. I'm from Maine and I've been fishing for trout with mostly dry flies. The only thing i've caught so far is what i think was a small fall fish.
