Thanks so much. I was wondering if people wanted to see these being tied at a conclave, but they may be too simple for that. Thoughts?

Hi Kelly,

When you do a real quality tie like this streamer I think it would be fine at a show. People watching at these shows are looking for tips and methods more than what flies are being tied.

Thank you Frank for your opinion. I always have a hard time deciding WHAT to tie. I have been on a bucktail streamer kick for some reason. But I think it may be so simple that it would not be interesting to some. It takes me 20-30 minutes to tie one of these at home. That is when I really hand stack the fire out of them. At a show I would not do that. I know I tied Briminators at one show, and they really liked them. I wanted to tie something that would not be too hard for me while talking. People seem to like my poppers probably the most of everything I tie, but I could never paint one with people watching. My hands shake too much as it is at times. If people are watching, I am a little nervous, and that does not help the hand shake at all. I want to tie one kind of fly, so I don't have to carry a huge amount of stuff with me. I keep my tying stuff in a big tool box I bought, that is plastic...a Stanley Fat Max. It holds a good deal. The event will be Saturday, so I must hurry up and my up my mind. It is a big show, not a little one...so I want to tie something people will want to see. I won't be tying the whole time by any means. I want to be able to walk around and watch other tyers, to learn.
