saltwater flies for barramundi, mangrove jack (I think you northerners refer to them as mangrove snapper ), and bream
other flies for freshwater applications chasing sooty grunter and jungle perch, and the oxeye herring (a small cousin of your atlantic tarpon)
dry flies and nymphs for my trip to Tasmania at Christmas

When do you fit in fly tying?
i will throw in a movie and just start cracking away. I usually get through 2 or 3 movies before I call it a day. Newly retired at age 28 http://www.flytyingf..._DIR#/smile.gif so I have the time to do it. Have pretty much done it every day since I started in July
Based Scottish Highlands. UK
MUSTAD The wise anglers choice.

For me it depends on the mood, I spent almost a year away from the vise and now have come back to it and started tying a few hours a week, but if February I will start teaching veterans at the local VFW post how to tye, it will happen twice a month for 3 hours, so that will boost up the amount of time I will be tying. It and pandora are my keys to sanity and relaxation. Just finished a book on soft-hackles and now have a curiosity about them so will probably be tying more of them than I did in the past.
I remember when I was tying a few hours a night, and fished only once every couple months, but that was mostly for swaps, it really got me started on tying and I learned a lot during those first couple of years due to the amount of swaps that I entered. It really made me stretch into new stuff that I hadn't done before by entering swaps. I got to find out that I could really tye size 22 midges, and liked doing it, even though it is hard to see things that small, I love the challenge of trying new fly tying skills, reminds me that it is a craft and a hobby that I can learn from and will never master. There are too many things to learn that I don't think that anyone could ever master all the things that are involved with tying in a lifetime, and I really like that idea.
