Thanks guys! I'm having as much fun tying flys as I do fishing with em haha.

The leg isn't that huge of a deal. Just me being a bit picky haha. I want to make a few more of them I'm sure they will improve a bit. Gonna be going back to the lake next Saturday. Got plenty of flys to try out

Ha , me and two buddies are going on a day trip to Wyoming, so 6 each. WE make an annual trek up there usually leaving at 4:00 AM getting back at 9:00 PM. It is our annual tradition, and now that I tie flies I have taken the role as chief provider of flies.

Hopefully since Ive now tied 9 dozen for the trip, maybe they will buy me a McGriddle in Laramie.

Caught up in a fit of nostalgia since I haven't been out casting in over a month, I've been tying some of the classics that still catch fish, but aren't fished much anymore. Here's a trio of black nosed dace variations.
