    First try

    I used epoxy - another first. It was going off in less than 2 minutes so necessary to work real quick. I was using Araldite 5 minute - maybe another brand will be better. thumbs
  3. Well here goes! These are my first attempt at tying for saltwater. A long way from perfect I know, but I was reasonably pleased with the outcome. Any comments/criticism welcomed (be gentle!!!!) thumbs
  4. thanks Twofingerz If I'd taken the trouble to look around the forum a bit better to start with I would no doubt have worked this out! When all else fails, read the instructions! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. thumbs
  5. Hi bwol I tried this but the wool/yarn/floss gets really stuck in the velcro. How do you get it off? Am i missing something obvious? thumbs
  6. G'day As a newcomer to the group and to flytying, I wondered if there was anywhere on the forum that I could post images of initial fly tying efforts for comment and constructive criticism? Any suggestions appreciated. thanks Jeff

    G'day to you all! My name is Jeff and I live in sunny Queensland, Australia. Not a lot of trout streams here, in fact the nearest is about 1500kms away - too far to pop out for a fish. We are lucky to be near the beach though and do have other freshwater options nearby - so not too bad! Dabbled in fly tying about 25 years ago and was never any good but am going to give it another try now and see if I can develop some skills. I must say that I am very impressed with the standard of tying evident on this site and look forward to hopefully picking up some tips/advice/help!!! You may wonder at my user name – “thumbs”..........well, when it comes to tying, that’s what I am at the moment “all thumbs”. Anyway, I look forward to being a member of this group and hope to get to know some of you better. Cheers Jeff (thumbs)
