  1. Hi Recently bought off ebay an assortment of fly tying hooks among which are two packs of Drennan "Longbelly" hooks, sizes 6 and 14. I cannot find any reference as to what longbelly hooks are for; clearly their shape is for a specific purpose but cannot find out anything about them (not even from Drennan) can anyone help Alan
  2. Hi everyone, So I’m seriously Considering buying a CAE Vice. After talking with Charlie for a good while, I got the impression that he is a really nice man. I know there is a bit history here with the vice, and I do get the controversy, but I would like some advice if at all possible. I believe there is a few people on the forum that own a number 2 vice. My question, which will determine whether I can buy the vice or not, is the hook range that it will comfortably tie. I know from a few videos I’ve seen online, it will handle very small hooks (22 and smaller). My concern is the other end of the spectrum. I now tie some large saltwater patterns, ranging up to a 6/0, and possibly larger. Can anyone confirm from tying on these vices if that will be possible. From what I’ve seen, I’d say it is, but would just like piece of mind before I order. Cheers, Chris

  4. I have google searched and nothing of any significance ever comes up for tying beginner bass flies. I have done some searching within this forum to find it but haven't had much success. Can anyone tell me some good largemouth bass patterns to tie for beginner fly tiers? and possibly good links to recipes for them? I have just scraped the surface of fly tying so I don't know much yet but I am learning quickly. Thanks in advance.
  5. 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. 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.
  6. Hi everyone, I made this video to show people how i make my booby eyes using the Gunville Foam Cutter Kit and Dremel 932 grinding stone. The cutters are also great for parachute posts and detached bodies and can be found on ebay and amazon. The grinding stones can be found on most online shops. Let me know what you think, how do you make yours? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a90xWqSXSgI
  7. Hey Everyone, Just signed up, what great site! I've been on here a bit for research in my fly tying endeavours. I would consider myself a novice fly tyer at best. Just getting away from the basic patterns and getting into tying streamers. I have a few questions on these patterns I came across. I love these flies but am having trouble figuring out the material used on these 2 patterns. I think the materials are mostly synthetics but I am not too familiar on what they are. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Kyle

  9. The Gulf Coast & Texas Councils of the IFFF, annually co-sponsor the "North Toledo Bend Rendezvous". This is the best "hands on" gathering of fly tyers in the South! Rendezvous is held the first weekend of November at North Toledo Bend State Park near Zwolle, LA (Nov. 4-6th). This will be the 28th Rendezvous (since 1989) of this gathering of fly tyers representing Federation clubs from Texas, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Mississippi and beyond. With no planned activities, but plenty of fly tying, food, fly casting instruction and fly fishing, and with only a minimal fee to cover lodging and meals, the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous remains one of the top tying events held each year in the U.S.A. http://pages.suddenlink.net/w/Rendez/indexR.html If you have never attended the North Toledo Bend Rendezvous or haven't been in a while, your are hereby invited to attend... Hey, we haven't gathered on the shores of Toledo Bend and throwing this party for 28 years for nothing!!! Rendezvous is a "hands-on" tying event, and is your chance to sit down and tie flies with some of the very best tyers in the Deep South! No matter if you are a beginner to tying or a master of this craft, you will learn a lot (or at least have fun tying with your friends &/or teaching others). We always have a great time! This is a wonderful event that is appropriate for your whole family... So bring your tying buddies, "significant other", as well as your kids/grandkids! And No - you do not have to be a member of the IFFF or a club to attend, but if you attend Rendezvous just once, you'll want to come back each year! See you there! PS A few of the "regulars" expected include: Ron Braud (i.e. Stipple Popper), Fred Hannie, Marc Pinsel, Bill Heugel, Kyle Moppert, Don Lawler, Mike Jackson, Dirk Burton, Peter Allen, along with a number of other excellent tyers...
  10. Hello everyone. My name is Chris and I have a tying shop on the eastern end of the north fork of Long Island, Ny. I started the business by tying buck tails and am now getting more and more into tying and offering mostly saltwater flies to my customers. I deal with several charter boats and guides here on long island and in Connecticut and just picked up a new customer in san Diego! Not sure how much help I will be to people as far as instruction goes but, if anyone has any questions for me I will do my best. Just because I tie/sell fly and components commercially, it certainly doesn't mean I have all the answers. My email address is bluewaterlures at opt online dot net should anyone need to get in touch with me. I will work on completing my profile and offer other contact information there. I hope everyone is taking advantage of this nice weather and getting in some good fishing! Ok, I will do my best to check back regularly so if anyone asks anything please be patient. Thank you, have a great week. Tight lines! Chris Blue water lures
  11. The Schminnow was originally created by Norm Zeigler to fish snook on the small islands off of Florida. This fly resembles a large wooly bugger, but was originally tied with estaz. I myself have made some small edits to the fly and I call it the "super schminnow" its more flashy, has even more movement in the water, and has a weighted head for some jigging action. One of the reasons this fly works so great is that it can resemble a shrimp, or a baitfish. So its great for multiple fishing situations.

  12. Hey guys, this is a super quick video on tying in dumbbell eyes. I plan on doing a few of these quick tips type of video's. They will be under 2 minutes (this one is only 1 and a half minutes). Let me know what you think? I know you all probably know how to tie in dumbbell eyes, but I am making my video's for the beginners as well as seasoned tiers. So I am thinking that some beginners might need help with some simple things like this. Let me know whatcha think of this series of videos. https://youtu.be/1vAds9-bnhA
  13. What do you guys think of this glass minnow? I usually tie it with bucktail, but I got this synthetic material recently and decided to tie it in that. Tell me what you think? The video is only 6 minutes and 45 seconds. https://youtu.be/ffMVjYoSczc

  21. I am stuggling to understand how to do whip finishes by hand. I have been forced to just tie a simple square knot and super glue it to keep it secure. I have tried looking it up on youtube, but I can't seem to transfer right handed whip finish to left handed whip finish. Can somone help me with whip finishing by hand for a left handed person?
  22. Some CDC that I got from some mallards that I shot.
  23. Greetings to all, I have read numerous books and magazine articles and all of them say you should never put down your scissors when tying. And I have tried to do that, but I have large hands, and all the scissors i have gotten to date, have not had large enough finger holes to make it comfortable to hold them all the time. Usually, I end up on my feet doing a wierd contortion dance just trying to get the scissors back down over my knuckles so I can cut something. I have found it much easier to set the scissors I am using down, but I was thinking there might be a brand of scissors out there, that you might know of, that have larger finger holes for people like me who have large hands. If anyone knows of such a brand of scissor, i would sure like to know about it. Thank you all.
