  5. Hello, Timmy again simple question today I fish central PA what colour should I make my fly eggs? For Rainbow, brows, brooks and mabey tiger trout what colours and what time of year do i fish them.
  6. Hey it Timmy again be sure to check out my Instagram page @timsflyfishing_pa I am posting today due to weeks of problems with the one and only prince nymph I got the hardest part down (tying in the biots) but i strugle to find a hackle witht the correct length and stiffness to accomidate the pricne nymphs legs. I have tried Indian hen back grab bag hackle and even something is given to me by another fly tyer Mr James Shawley. Still, the fibres where to long 1 and a half the length they should be, im tying these on size 14 standard Daiichi hook. I haven't tried the hackles from underneath a brown hackle cape would these work be I just not looking for the right size? The one cape I was given is good stiffness but too long and the other one I have is good length but stands straight up. I tie it back but I still feel like it should be loose and wavey. Please help me out. If anyone has any extra hackles or materials im a new fly just started and am not asking for handouts just keeping an eye out for someone who might want to help as you all know to be 17 and a fly tyer is difficult when money is tight. I am working on getting a summer job at a fly shop though. Thank you and anyone who might have materials... anything hackle dubbings chennile hooks fur please email me @[email protected] or message me on here. Or if you know anyone with tons of materials im looking anywhere I can. Excuse spelling
  7. this is great guys i might even print it
  8. so when they are just not taking flys use emerdger and when they are not rising at all use nymph?
  9. I am confused right now with emerger flys nymphs spinners dry flys and spent flys egg laying flys i dont know when or why to use them. I know eggs are laid and turn into nymphs and nymphs emerge into dry flys and then spinners then spent flys but why would you fish a dry fly vs an emerger because its not like every nymph emerges into fly at the exact same time... There will still be nymphs and emerges at the same time as flys that hatched earlier are spent and dying how long do these flys live. When do you fish each type and what triggers fly hatches how do you choose what type of fly to use during its hatch? I am not a newbie just need this cleared up? And like all winter midges are hatching??? I just don't get it. be sure to follow my fly tying instagram @timtiesflys_pa
  10. I am posting this on fly tyers forum because I feel people who tie their own flies know the best when it comes to fly fishing.
