    Default 2nd day tying flies!!

    Welp started tying a few flies last night tied a few eggs and some nymphs. Got surprised by a new 8 wt rod so I went to the fly shop today and got some materials for bigger flies. So far I'm loving tying my own flies and can't wait to have stocked shelves of any fly I want!! Here's some pictures





    Now I just tied this one I figured out the trick to spinning deer hair and the results look good!!!

    LOL, and in no time at all, like many of us, especially me, you'll be spending so much on materials that each of the many flies you envision will only be costing you 2 or 3 times what you can buy them for at the discount fly store!

    Good for you, they are looking great.

    Streamwalker:

    These are beautiful.

    As you gain experience, you will find ways to reduce the cost of your materials.

    I have a heavier rod also, because like you, I pursue fish that get to about 20 pounds etc.

    I also rely upon a 6 weight.

    Keep tying and you will enjoy it all the more.
