New fly to tie

13 March 2019 - 09:25 AM

Hello all,

I have been tying Woolly Buggers for a couple months now ...at least 25 if not more. Anyway I am looking for my next fly to tie either a streamer or a nymph. Any suggestions would be much appreciated

Thanks in advance 

Fenwick Aetos

Over the weekend I bought a Fenwick Aetos 6wt 9'-0". I plan on using it for Streamer & Nymph fishing for Trout in New England rivers.

Not sure if I bought the right size. Is there a big difference between a 5 & 6 wt? I liked the length of the 6wt @ 9'-0" 


Hook Placement In Vise

08 February 2019 - 09:16 AM

Good Morning all.

This may be a repeat question sorry if so.

I am just starting to tie my own flies and question how much of the hook tip to expose in the vise. Is there a reason to leave it exposed? I catch the thread not to mention my finger on it all the time.

Easy Pheasant Tail Nymph

Hi All I am going to start tying my first Easy Pheasant Tail Nymph and was looking at any suggestions on hook size.

I have seen several videos and their suggestions on hook size are 14-18. 

How about Daiichi 1180 #10  or even a #8?

Thank you
