Discussion in 'Fly Tying' started by kelvin, Sep 15, 2011.
how is everyone doing getting your ties done?
what are you tying??
I have mine tied. Royal Wulff and a fly that was called a wooly bugger when given to me but it looks more like a Carey Special variation.
I'm finished with ten but checked the posts and found that there are now twelve. I will make some more just for the fun. I have a low water, steelhead coachman and a searun baitfish pattern. I've used the coachman lots but the baitfish is new to me and I'll be using it this coming weekend.
What? We're suppose to be tying flies?
Damn, I'm in the middle of a nice meatloaf.
with gravey and mash tatters?
I've got my Camo Careys tied. Just need to figure out what other pattern to do.
Is there any other way? and doughy biscuits fer the xtra gravey.
Had a little fresh ground elk that was callin' my name.
The fishing lately has been pretty good but I see the daphnia is coming back with falling water temps. Slammed 'em last week on emergers about a foot deep but the flies were too small to get pics with pierced lips.
Reckon ya'll gonna have to believe me when I say they work. he he
Sop it up with a biscut .... my favorite
long time since I had some elk
I hit some big sea runs myself in the south Sound on Monday right at at dusk
think my second tie will be a Olive Flat Wing just picked up a couple of beautiful new capes
I have never participated in a fly swap before. Should we tie 14 flies?
Tie me some extra flies and I'll bring ya' some cornbread n honey.
I should bring a pot of beans and hamhocks with mexican cornbread. We'd have a little fun during the swap but the fly shop might not sell much after our visit!
No tie two sets of Five ten flies total
one of oine kind
one of another
you can tie as many extras as you want to give away if you're feeling generous
Steve you will be trading two sets of flies with two other people
you can tie more and you don't have to unless you want to give all to me of course
I am done with all mine
5 Bright Dot Dry Flies
5 White and Olive Flatwing Bait fish Patterns
View attachment 45620
both these patterns catch fish
I wish I could come, but I have to work that Saturday. All have fun!
I am finishing up my last fly tonight. 5 Flashback stoneflies and 5 Spawning Purple.
I can't make it in person unfortunately. I spend my "weekend" away from the dispatch center cooking at Sapolil Cellars here in Walla2 and my 2nd boss has a huge catering event that day and keeps getting this panic ridden look on her face when I ask her about it. So I am gonna be a nice and work.
Where should I send the flies?
Ok how are the ties coming along
the swap is this coming Saturday?
I tied an extra set so we can still take on more tiers
