  1. Here's one fully fishable yet quite realistic Stonefly dry fly. For the pattern, more photos and tying instructions check out my site at FlyTyingArchive.com -Timo
  2. Here's a bit more realistic than average approach to a Caddis dry. It's fully functional as a fishing fly and fairly easy to tie. The pattern and tying video are available at Fly Tying Archive Timo

  4. Thanks Terje. I'm really glad you liked it. Timo
  5. Hi, Just added a Prince Nymph to the blog. Go have a look and tell me what think about it.
  6. Just added a CDC & Elk to the blog http://flytyingarchive.com Hope you guys like it -Timo
  7. Thanks, The wingcase is made with Thin Skin and one strand of pearl Flashabou. Then epoxy on top.
  8. Thanks guys I'm glad you like it. I have been building a small base of fly patterns for it slowly and now I think it's enough to get it out to more than just friends and family. I hope it will grow to live up to it's name -Timo
  9. I've started to keep a fly tying blog where I will post the patterns I tie and a bit of history and tying instructions on them. I do all kinds of flies and try to cover everything from classic salmon flies to pike flies but I'm tying mostly Salmon flies these days and it reflects on the blog of course. I'll do some more videos also when I've got the time for it but I don't want to do them halfway so you'll have to be patient. Check the site out and tell me what you think. You can also find it on Facebook or put it to your RSS-feed to get the updates directly. If you have patterns you'd like me to tie let me know and I'll try to make it happen. Fly Tying Archive -Timo
  10. Hi, I haven't been active on this forum but some of you might know me from the Classic Fly Tying forum. I've been tying some trout flies lately and started adding them to my blog also http://flytyingarchive.com Go and check it out and tell me what you think. I'm open for suggestions so if there's patterns you'd like me to tie I'm listening. Best regards. Timo
  11. At the moment my favorite is Captain Walton, I just love it. Never tied it though, I'm saving it for that special moment Least favorite is probably the Floodtide
  12. Great job Long. I like to tie my herl heads differently at the moment but I'll try that next and maybe I'll switch to your more classic method. Timo
  13. Sorry Mark, Thanks to everyone for the comments The tag issue is something that is just my opinion and could be wrong but I like short tags. I know how they're described in the old books to be tied but I've never seen an antique fly with a really long tag. Most have short tags and I like it A tag starting from the barb is the absolute max I will do. On the length of the first body section you can blame Mr. Traherne because it's a classic pattern. I agree that it gives the fly weird proportions. The hook is 4/0 Sprite as mentioned, pretty cheap and OK looking. You can get them from Jens or Helsinki Speyclave. The vise I'm using is Montana Mongoose. It works OK but it has it's issues, maybe I'll upgrade when I get more money. Timo
  14. Glad you decided to go with a full wool head instead of a band. Looks lot better to me
