Fly Tying

Let's start the Year thinking small fly swap

Recommended Posts

Yes guys, the flies were darn nice throughout. I had a 26 parachute and an 18 beadhead if I remember right and the 18 in that bunch looks like a bass fly. Great job to all who participated and we only had one no show and others definitely made up for it.

Sure would be great if you could get some pics for us.

I'll get some pics up in the next few days, and once again, I apologize for the mess of strings. 

I was anxious to get them out to you on time, and those stupid stringed tags were the only option I could think of when the small zip bags were gone.  Must've been a good month for the heroin dealers around here.

Niveker, what works good for almost all size flies is small tags from scrap or leftover foam. I just take a sheet and slice it into a bunch of tags ready to go. Will look forward to your getting us some pics if you get a chance.

Thanks, vicrider, I'll try that next time.  

Here’s the best I can do with these little guys.  I’m afraid my poor photo skills don’t do them justice.

I received a very nice set, Nick, thanks for hosting.

And thank you for your gift. Nice to be thought of once in awhile. People on these boards are a very generous bunch for the most part.
