  1. I have looked into the guadalupe river, but who is it that I talk to about joining. I know I will only make it over there a couple times in the winter months, about a 4 hour drive from here, but I will no doubt make it. thanks for the tips!
  2. Do you actually fish with this or is it for the art? looks amazing!
  3. Largemouths are soooo much fun. Hook into a big one that peels off drag and that is what makes me keep coming back for more. I am dreaming about a big fight on a fly, I can't wait!! My largest bass on a fly so far was only a pound or so, but I'm fishing water that I've seen 14+ lbers come out of so maybe the fish gods will be with me someday.
  4. thanks for the input, and wow there are a ton of hook options, lol. I'm guessing the 2xl and 3xl are referring to shank length? I think I'm going to mainly stick to bass streamers and poppers to start with, then get into other ties as the need arises.
  5. I can get some scrap fur mainly just deer, maybe some turkey feathers.
  6. I've been reading for a few days and everyone has great input, but I'm wondering if there are certain brands to avoid. Being on a budget, I don't want to buy some crap that I will end up leaving sitting around forever because it's not worth buying. I'm starting with nothing at all, so any pointers will be appreciated.. and yes I've searched and read a lot of threads, just throwing it out there before I order equipment to get started tying.
  7. I'm a new Fly fisherman, and I'm interested in learning to tie my own flies. I primarily fish for bass but after a trip to Creede Colorado, i fell in love with trout fishing and I can't wait to go back. My plans are to fly fish streams and lakes in my area for bass, crappie and perch until I can head back to the mountain rivers. I've been reading up and studying on tying techniques and trying to decide on a vise.
