Good morning. I received a fly kit for Christmas last year and after about 6 or 7 trips out finally caught my first trout. After that I got the hang of it and kept on catching some. However, I still get out beat by a spoon lure every time but once. Anyways, to the point. Realizing I enjoy fly fishing more than with a spinner reel, I gave it great thought and decided to jump into the fly tying hobby. I've been reading up on it at several sites and places, including this place.
So I finally got my order placed. Have about a week and a half until it arrives. I have about five patterns that I got the materials for: EZ nymph, wooly bugger/worm, pheasant tail, mayfly and dragon fly. Plus others that take the same materials, but those are the five I want to start out with and maybe use this fall. Maybe by spring I'll get some different materials and work on some dry flies. Anyways, figure this would be a nice winter time hobby will post my first couple in a few weeks when I get into it.
Added some pictures of some samples on page two.
