Fly Tying Info...

Recommended Posts

WxGuy

It seems we get a whole lot of inquiries as to the basics of fly tying in here.

Would it benefit folks to have a thread for starters to fly tying? There could be some basic info posted on how and what to use to get started and the opportunity to ask plenty of questions within that thread...

I'm a relatively novice tyer, but I know we could pool enough brain cells to get a good tutorial in here without writing a novel.

Knowing this could turn into a can of worms, I'm just throwing out the idea...

Thoughts?

I'll work on getting some pics down at the shop and put something together. Great idea Randy!

Great idea Randy, I'm in fulltime tying mode this weekend. I'll see what I can throw together, and I'll add a few patterns to the fly pattern thread as well.

Has anyone out there used fireline 2-3lb to tye flys? Man, can you ever crank down the pressure for tying on dumbell eyes.

That's a great idea. That's one of the most frustrating things about tying flies to me; the thread breaks at the drop of a hat. There has GOT to be a better way! grin.gif

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Tomorrow I'll post a fish pic. I hope.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
