It’s Fly Tying Time Just Add Vise Kits!
It is tying time in America! Post Christmas Blues got you down? Well perk up with the JAV KITS and tie up some spring and summer flies.
May of us try to catch up and prepare for the upcoming trout season by tying our asses of in the winter months. My theory has always been to tie a ton of the EZ flies. Then buy the hard ones. Any fly with more than 6 or more steps is something I want to get at the fly shop. So I tie a bunch of dirty worms, Zebra’s, Weight flies, Firebeads, ants, Buzzball’s and the like.
What do you tie at home? I know that before I became a fishing guide I tied lots of short run patterns too, meaning 6-12 of one pattern. Most of the time guides will tie dozens upon dozens of few patterns. But as a recreation angler, your fun window is much larger in the creative tying arena. Tie what you want and try it. Truly one of the many terrific facets of fly fishing. Those days are unfortunately behind me and I miss them. The only for fun tying. I love to tie flies. A great evening journey along with a glass of brown water that sometimes lasts until the morning.
