Vince: Nice work, I really like the looks of the hares ear nypmh but made with seal fur........the seal fur gives the nymph a really nice buggy look! I'll bet that nymph is a real fish catcher.

Agree with Larry the black nymph should catch fish...my friend Batistou ties his chub special with seal fur...they're very lively in the water.

Hey Wilkie, those are great! Are you being taught or are you learning on your own? Nice job either way and the fish should like them as well!
To upload pictures to this site from photobucket, I usually open two windows, one for here and the other for your photos.
When you are creating your post, there is a little tool bar just above the area you are typing in. There is a little icon yellow and blue I think, that will bring up a window that will have http:// highlighted in it.
From your photobucket pics, not the larger single photo but from your album, highlight and copy the url that is labeled "direct link" so you highlight and right click then click on "copy."
When you bring up the window to add picture, do not do anything to it, just right click and paste. This should give you an appropriate sized photo. I hope I am not insulting your intelligence here, it is the best way I know how to do this from photobucket.....Kerry

Default Re: first flies

thanks i am learning on my own from books and here and what i read online but i found have trial and error is working best for most things i read the instructuions before i start tying then just refer to the pictures for guidence and if stuck i read the instructions again but i found some instructions dont work well for me so i find different ways to round the problem ,, thanks i thought there would be a easyier way to get pictures up as have no idea how to resize pictures to upload into my gallery as all mine are far to big thanks again and dont worry about telling me if something is wrong or could be better
many thanks

Default Re: first flies

I understand the trial and error method. I am self taught and started learning in 1969 when my learning resources were pretty limited and I wasn't that astute when it came to fine motor skills.
I harp on one resource alot and that is because it is free and valuable and that is YouTube. Use it as a learning tool, there are many good techniques displayed on the site. I have been using it quite a bit this winter. I recommend Davie McPhail videos but there are many others. Good luck! Keep posting your pictures......Kerry

Default Re: first flies

Your flies are looking good. The eyes aren't crowded. That took me awhile to learn and correct.
You asked for tips on posting pictures. I'm not that good, but here is one that might help. On Photobucket there is a default setting for the pixel size of all of your downloads. One is approx. 640X480. That's a good size for online postings. Then I just copy the "img" line under the pic I want and paste it in box that drops down when you hit the post card looking icon with the mountain on it at the top bar.
