    Fish Pictures

    That looks like some good eating to me.
  2. If anyone is looking for a heavy vise pedestal Sportsmens Warehouse has them on sale for 17.00. They go about 4 lbs. and they just got them in stock. Picked mine up today.
  3. I just saw this topic and wanted to say that is some great work. I have been turning for about 10 years but only have a smaal machine. One of the things I have done a lot of are the mini bird houses. They sell well so why not.

    Eyes

    Here's a question for you would you use Calf Tail or Craft Fur for the smaller fly's? I am sure most of you use the buck tail but what I am looking at is Hareline Calf Tail assortment for 8 dollars. Good idea or bad idea? Here's my first try using squirrel tail. Bigger picture than what I was expecting.

    Eyes

    I would like to ty some small Clouser minnows for Bluegills. Size I would do them in would be 8 and 10. I have no idea what size eye to use or to even try. I don't want to have a bunch of them and not use them. Any ideas as to what size I should start out with? Any special materials that you use for yours I would like to know about. Thanks ahead of time.
  6. Those have got to be some of the best Bluegill bugs I have seen. Now I am new to this fly tying, but to date I like a lot.

    Color

    Kind of what I expected ask 10 fishermen what color to us and get 10 different answers Some nice fly's shown and I sooner or later will try to ty them. Thanks again for your answers.

    Color

    I do know that any color can be the color on any given day. What I would like to know is what is your go to color to start the day with? You know the one that is your favorite. Now it may be a color combo that you start with. For your info I chase mostly gills but would still like to know for any kind of fish.

    hook size

    Thanks for all the charts. Don't know why I did not find them except these computers and I don't really go hand in hand.

    hook size

    Is there some kind of chart or web site that tells some one if a Mustad hook is number S70-3399 what is the number for that hook in a Daiichi or a Tiemco or what ever brand? Or am I just missing that all Dry Fly or Wet Fly or Bait or what ever hooks have a certain set of numbers? If there is such a thing I would like to know. Thanks

    Legs on a fly

    The answers you gave me is kind of what I was thinking but I have been wrong many times before. Thanks for your answers and skeet3t my wife doesn't think we need the internet.
  12. Can anyone tell me does a fly need to have 8 legs or is that something to just make it look nicer to the person doing the tying? When you fish a fly with only 4 do you catch less fish? I know these are some dumb questions but does it make a difference?

    Survey

    Looks like a lot of good reasons to go either way. I have tried the CA but was wondering if I was missing something. One more question. What is Sally Hansen's?

    Survey

    What do you prefer CA glue or UV? I have found very little on the subject or I am looking in the wrong place.

    My first flys

    Thanks for looking at what I have done to date. This is some thing I have wanted to do for a long time. Now that I have started I am wondering why I waited so long to start. My guess would be life just gets in the way. Hoping the next ones will be better. If anyone around Tucson is up for some very cheap lessons lets talk.
  16. These are some of the first fly's that I have tied. Now I have been having trouble with the feathers so instead of using good ones I went to Hobby Lobby and got some cheap ones. I do know it should be a Olive colored feather but I used what I had. The Wooly Bugger is on a Eagle Claw #2 and is a all purpose live bait hook. Also the Bully is on the same hook. The Vise is the one I bought on Ebay called a Byron, for me I don't know the difference between a good or bad one but so far it works. Don't laugh to hard and I am open to suggestions.

    Vise advice

    I just talked myself into a vise. They had a Byron vise that sells on Amazon for 129.00. The one I bought was for 70.00 on Ebay. Looks nice anyway, I guess I will know more in a week.

    Vise advice

    I have not taken the plunge. Once again I am having a hard time telling myself that this is something I should do. I live in Tucson Arizona and there isn't a whole lot of places to go with out driving for a hour or more other than a city park pond.

    Vise advice

    This vise is on sale for 48.00 at this time. Today is 6/21/2021.
  20. If you where going after Gills in June or July and then again August or September what would be your first fly choice top water or a wet fly?

    Vise advice

    I Thank all of you for your suggestions. I have been reading a lot on this forum and will keep on doing so.
  22. I am sure you have been asked many times about a vise. I am new and would like to know if any one uses the Colorado Angler Crown Vise. At Sportsmen's Warehouse it is listed for 50.00 which would be the top of my spending limit.
