this past weekend we had a getogether for my bday as most of you know, i recieved a fly tying kit from a fellow member as a gift (thanks again andrew your the man!) i tied a ly that moring and caught 3 fish in 3 casts on it that sam evening..im hooked and have tied and stocked dries in my box and im amazed at what i can tie after two days of having materials and tools. just ordered a bunch of stuff from the caddis fly shop to stock my box instead of buying flies. its way more fun and rewarding to catch fish on what you tied. somthing that you came up with. like the elk hair caddis/mayfly hybrid that was said to closely imitate an x caddis that caught and hooke dplenty of fish for me. i will have to take pictures of my creations soon. especially the mayfly spinners in multiple colors i have tied along with the stimulators and parachute/thorax bwo with microfibbet tails. now i have somthing to do that i enjoy while im off the water waiting to fish. pictures soon to come as well as recipies for some simple but effective flies i have tied.
