Hi All, I looking for some advice on materials for a fly tying contest I'm putting together for this month's meeting of the Fourth Corner Fly Fishers in Bellingham (and, as long as I'm at it, I'll add an invitation to attend if you're interested -- PM me for details). The twist is that I am looking for suggestions of unusual materials to add. The contest is going to be organized like the cooking show 'Chopped!' -- in each round each tyer will get a bag of materials that they are required to use in their fly. The bag will have a few normal items and a couple of unusual items. Tyers will also have access to a table with a selection of other standard materials. Flies will be judged on the most creative use of the bag of 'ingredients'. So, what kinds of ideas do you have for the unusual items? I'll get you started with a few of my ideas: a barbie doll head, a piece of costume jewelry, a pack of twist ties, little army men, etc. I plan to hit a craft store, a dollar store, a pet store, etc. and just wander the aisles looking for inspiration. Thanks in advance for your crazy thoughts!
