About every five years since I was fourteen, I've taken up fly fishing for a couple of months. I'm sixty-two, now.
During half those periods, I also took up tying.
This year, my fishing partner of fifteen years(my son) moved to Florida, leaving me to fish alone. We have been bass fishing with conventional gear. So, I re-took up fly fishing the first of the year and, of course, tying.
I had most of the tools I needed, but bought materials only for the flies I was going to tie. I started with Clousers, then Wooly Buggers. I'm now going into some crawdads and panfish flies.
I bought an Orvis book about carp flies because I figured a lot of the carp flies would be nice panfish flies, also. When I got the book, it was full of recipes, but I realized it didn't tell the actual tying procedure.
So, here I am. Needing help.
Thanks for having me,
