How to Make Perfect Booby Eyes (Video)
Bugchuckinguy posted a topic in The Fly Tying BenchHi everyone, I made this video to show people how i make my booby eyes using the Gunville Foam Cutter Kit and Dremel 932 grinding stone. The cutters are also great for parachute posts and detached bodies and can be found on ebay and amazon. The grinding stones can be found on most online shops. Let me know what you think, how do you make yours? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a90xWqSXSgI

Roland58 posted a topic in Beginner's CornerIs there a function to a 'parachute' fly?.....or is it strictly a decoration? It doesn't seem to resemble any part of a real bait, maybe it affects the casting ability? Any help is much appreciated.
This is a video of Mike Lawson talking about the history of the fly and tying the EZ Caddis. We just wanted to share it with some hardcore fly tiers. https://vimeo.com/60180188 Visit the link to view the video
A Beginner Again!!!
milesnewey posted a topic in Beginner's CornerWell hello guys, My Name is Miles and I'm from Derbyshire in the UK. I first used this site about 15 years ago when I was 14, 15 ish and I had just started tying flies! I ran a couple of swaps and got really into it. I then went off to uni and lost site of normality being engulfed with studies and alcohol, (mainly alcohol though!!). I then went and got married, and had a baby girl, and before I knew it I was separated from the wife and found I had a bit more time on my hands! For Christmas Dad went and got me a few bits and pieces to start off with so I thought I would post a few first attempts on here and open myself to comments and constructive criticism! Please feel free to comment! I'm going to have a go at a few parachutes tonight as Dad is off to Slovenia at the end of next month, (and doesn't tie as good as me!!) Kind Regards, Miles
