Dragonfly

Posted 03-18-2017 at 12:09 AM by americanzero

I am improving my dubbing skills! I had some bow string wax, and it made a tremendous difference. I didn't do too much tonight, just did an ez-nymph, an emerger, and I made a dragonfly of my own creation. I dunno how it will work. It I think it looks buggy!

Also, I am trying to get some of the turkey hunters I know to pitch in some feathers when they take a bird this year and donate them to Project Healing Waters. That's it for tonight.

I raided my kids craft supplies and found some lengths of rigid yarn. It works like no-dub I think I. Tied and emerging nymph and a red SHWAPF.

Not having a teacher/mentor is a total bummer, but I would rather learn the hard way than not at all. I tied a copper midge, another SHWAPF, and what was supposed To be a hares ear. it looks more like a dragonfly emerger.

Trainwreck

Posted 03-14-2017 at 11:49 PM by americanzero

That about sums up today's adventures at the vise. I did make an EZ nymph and a SHWAPF, but that was about it. It was a long day, I'm not feeling the greatest, and tonight was just not a good night of tying. I have to figure out what I'm doing wrong with dubbing. I can't dub anything. I think I'm using too much, but time will tell. I am still having trouble with everything spinning around the hook shank. I think I need to do two or so loose wraps. I have been startin with too much tension and I...
