What this supposed to mean?
Are looking for some new confrontations here?
On what base can you tell that a fly is tied or being modeled.
Or do you really think that you are the only one who TIED flies.
I respect you flies, maybe you should do the same by other tyers, and not assume that the rest of us made models.
I always answer the questions from other tyers and have no secrets at all, I know a few tyers over here in person and I can tell you they feel the same about it.
So leave the mod work to the mods and be happy that you think that you really tie you flies and others don’t
Johan , I believe you tie your flies . I believe most tiers here do as well.There are just a couple who use epoxy and resin and layers of paint with or without hooks and call it tying.
Well leave those, at the end they loose any way.
But where does somebody cross the line? By using epoxy, the eyes of my dragonfly are collard whit a thin layer of collard epoxy as well, am I fake by doing that?
I think people must and can do what ever they like and if that is gluing and they are happy whit, who am I to say that they cant.
Don’t make a big deal about it, keep on tying and have fun.
