  1. I really appreciate everyone’s insight. I’ll keep you posted on my progress.
  2. I was supposed to go to my local shop for a class but my wife got the Covid (again. third time. Yes, she’s vaxed) and didn’t want to risk bringing anything into the shop. Figured I’d try to figure it out on my own. Turns out, fly tying is harder than I thought it would be. But it’s really enjoyable. My job is very stressful and I’m hoping this new hobby can serve as relief.
  3. Elk Hair Caddis. The picture says it all. I’ll keep trying and will get it right eventually.
  4. Thank you for the welcome and the reply. I tied my first one today. I had a lot of fun doing it but it’s comically bad. It made me appreciate all the flies I’ve purchased in the past
  5. Hello everyone. I’m a new to tying and the forum. I’ve been fly fishing for about 6 years. I recently went into a fly shop looking for a new reel and starting talking with a few guys in the shop as they were tying. I went home and went down a long YouTube rabbit hole on fly tying. I returned to the shop the next day and purchased some materials and tools suggested by the staff and a Griffin Montana Mongoose vise. I’ve heard conflicting opinions about this vise. Everything from “it’s an over-price piece of crap” to “it should last you a long time” to “it’s pretty advanced for someone just starting out.” I would appreciate any feedback or thoughts from those in the know. Thanks.
