    My first attempts at fly tying

    My first two tries at fly tying... any suggestions on how to make a start bettering my technique? The olive started as a wooly bugger and then I misjudged the marabou and the pink is just me messing around-on that one I know that I should have cut the Maribou farther up so it would be bushier

    Is UV dubbing really UV reflective?

    I've been tying up some baitfish patterns using Hareline Dubbin's Ice Dub UV dubbing material. I got to thinking, "How do I know that this dubbing material really reflects UV light and how much?" Since we humans can't see UV light, for the most part, we can't just look at the dubbing material...

    WTB Light to Moderately used lines for my two-hander

    I have a 6 weight, 10'6" Redington CPX Switch, and I'm looking to figure out what lines I like best on it. At full retail that's a challenge. I've got a 350 grain Skagit and a WF-8-F. A Scandi, Switch line or something like a Rio Chucker would be great if the price is right.
