Fly Tying

Recommended Posts

Hi evryone, :) long time since I have post anything. I have practise on this handtying thing and working a lot to reduce the headsize and to get my herl heads better, NOT EASY :( :( :dunno: :wallbash: :angry: hehe. I think on my two lates I finally is on the right way. :) My two latest is the Mystery flies in the second row. All of them is tied in hand, some I am satisfied with other not. Some of them will meet the big knife, number four on the first row I have cut the hackel just to see how it looks because it was way to long. The biggest flies is on PJ size 5/0 and the small ones is on size 2/0. Hope you like em, comment and critic is ok. :)

What a collection! Those are beautiful, Kjell-Ove, and you should be very proud of them.

 

I've heard that pine pitch makes good tying wax. In your opinion, what are its advantages?

I cant say much about advantages seens I just start to use it my self, but I think its real real sticky and work very well for me. I made the wax because I wish to learn how they do it back in the old days. I got some wax from Derek and getting interested how he made it. Then I got some info from Carne and Derek how to made the wax.
