Got a cheapy tying kit for xmas from the folks. I wasnt even thinking of starting to tie until a few years from now, when I can actually fly fish properly. But I thought I'd mess around for a little bit until the kit material runs out.
Had to run to the shop to get a whip finish, some foam and some head cement.
Ive had a fly tying book for a while, used it for a reference.
In order I tied 1 of each:
Para Adams (which was looking great until I ruined the post while wrapping the hackle
Some weird thing with dubbed and foam body
Spun elk body something or other
Im only posting the ones that came out semi decent....althought the EHC was ok too
Reeeaally tiny for a bugger but this was before I remembered I had larger hooks laying around (kit only came with size 12-16)
Me just messing around. If I had lighter thread this things butt would look better
Last night I tied some more spun bodies and foam n SJ junk stuff on larger hooks.
Tonight I'll get back to the basics for good measure, then probly shelve it. I dont feel right tying when I can barely pull a fish on the long rod.....maybe I'll get a few more materials and stock up on EHC's and some other easy ones during the winter. Who knows.
Pretty darn fun tho I gotta say
