    Default Whats your favorite pattern to tie?

    With the addition of my 8wt rod to my arsenal I have been on a tying frenzy lately. So it got me to thinking...

    Whats your favorite pattern to tie?

    That's really a harder question than I thought at first. I know my favorite patterns to fish are no my favorites to tie. Now I'm racking my brain for a decision on a favorite to tie, but I'm thinking I don't have a favorite, just many favorites. I'll keep thinking on it, though.

    Great question. If I were to have to answer with a specific fly pattern, I'd really have to put some thought into it. One of the things I like about tying is that it is an excellent filler of time between fishing seasons.

    Like now, my steelhead boxes are stocked well enough, so I'm inventorying the trout boxes, materials and thinking of spring creek trout. As that season goes forward, it's onto some smallmouth flies and then onto steelhead flies.

    That said, I guess my favorite pattern is the one I'm tying and anticipating using with good company.

    Don't know about fav. pattern. But I do enjoy tying saltwater flies more than dry, wet, or other freshwater flies. It might be that I really enjoy saltwater fishing more even though I fish freshwater 70% of the time. I know this I hate it when I have to tie anything under a size 14....

    Streamers and more specifically my own pattern creations. Find tying to be more relaxing if I am creating instead of copying.

    I was going fly fishing until my wife suggested it, now I can't tell who is outsmarting who!

    Being "one with nature" requires a knowledge of what animals are living nearby and a weapon of sufficient magnitude to give you at minimum an equal chance of survival. No one has an invisible aura that animals can detect and sense your good intentions.

    Don't really have a favourite, but a couple of Caddid patterns come to mind. The Sedgehog and the International Hopper. Still there are many others I enjoy.
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
