I must have tied a hundred flies and gave most of them away......it's kind of show and tell and then give the guy that asked the most quesions the fly you just tied as a sample. Or if there's a little kid watching, it goes to him or her.
Here's a couple of Red Quills I tied, one with light hackle, and the other with dark hackle. Both will work like a charm.
And here's a Royal Wulff I tied on a Czech made hook. The fly is going to be mounted in a shadow box and auctioned off to raise funds for the Federation of Fly Fishers. I'll be writing more soon on these hooks and showing other patterns tied on them, and where you can buy them. They are well made, sharp and they even look pretty wicked with that circle point. Can't wait to fish them and report back, I hear they are as good when fishing them as they are in the tying vise.
And here's a soft-hackle Hendrickson emerger, also tied on a Czech made hook.
That's all for now, got to listen to President Obama-lama-ding-dong give his annual speach. Maybe he'll bring Speaker Boehner to tears, not that that's hard to do...........I just noticed, Speaker Boehner doesn't blink........and Obama is the only one in the room without a ribbon on his lapel for Rep. Giffords.
I'll be back.
In the meantime, sharpen your hooks and laugh with your friends every chance you get.
