Took my first shot at my vise yesterday.  Tied an estaz,caddis, and wooly bugger.  I know they need work but I felt pretty good about the wooly bugger, even if it took me about 20 minutes to complete it LOL.  Even my oldest daughter was excited about it.

 

 

 

It's early in the game but I think I'm addicted  ......

Nice first tries. Know that flies do not have to be beautiful to catch fish. Go out if you can, catch one on these and THEN you will be addicted.

Can't complain about those for a first attempt. Keep at it. Love the pic with your daughter.

Thanks everyone!  Lots of video watching on youtube helps a ton!  Dubbing was giving me fits at first, figured out I was using way too much.
