  1. Like a lot of you, I have materials in stackable boxes and plastic drawer bins. I have them organized (sort ot) by what wet fly, dry fly, marabou, feathers such as mallard flank, ronze mallard, guinne (sp?) and such are togather etc, etc. Works most of the time. When buying I have a list of items I find needed to tie certain flies I write it down and when I have an order I do it all at once. Keep refinning until I get it right. That will take a lifetime!
  2. If you are familiar with spey tying fundamentals you can tie just about any fly pattern into a spey. Check out John Shewey's book Steelhead flies also Davie McPhail's you tube videos
  3. Nice work, haven't tried tying in hand. Don't know if my arthritic riddles hands could handle it!
  4. Over the top, it just seemed the natural way to do it.
  5. I have a 8 yr old daughter who tied her first fly (with a little help a few months ago and when I am out in the shop tying she will come out and ask to help. Getting a little spot next to me ready for her. Can't wait to start teaching her to fly fish!
  6. What does everyone use for their salmon and steelhead reels?
