I'm filling my fly boxes. I love filling fly boxes. I get a real sense of accomplishment when I fill one up.
Right now I'm going through an Orvis fly tying manual and tying all the flies in it. It gives me practice and I am learning a lot of the old stand-by flies. All of them are fishable in our waters.
So far, I've done Wooly-Buggers, Bead head Soft Hackles, G.R. Hares Ear Nymph and the Adams. I added some moose hair to the body of some of the Adams to make them mosquitoes. This exercise is getting me to do things I haven't done before, like make my own hare and musk rat dubbing. I compared the natural hares ear dubbing to the ready made and like the natural much better. It gives the nymph a much more organic appearance to me.
So now the two major things I am going to work on are fly-to -fly uniformity and appropriate head size.
What are you working on these days?
