I dont HATE cold water..

Postby ecu daniel 14 » Thu Nov 20, 2014 3:57 am

After 5 months of tying, I have truly found my new addiction and passion. I am actually looking forward to the freezing water so I can sit inside and tie flies all day. Sure I love fly fishing too, but there is something about teasing a fish to eat with something you created on your own. Here are some recent ties from the last month or so I have done. Most intersting of the bunch, my buddy wanted me to tie up an all SEC team line-up of deer hair divers for display in his man cave...Ive only gotten 4 done so far. I will post the whole group once I finish with that. I have also been experimenting with different materials, mostly trying to find cost saving techniques. See homemade mono shrimp/crab/craw eye balls. Those are fun and very cheap.

Freezing water here just means less time chasing bass and more time chasing Steelhats in the rivers :mrgreen: Excellent ties, those craws are well done.

Nice ties. Shoot, I'm happy just to tie up a few jig hook clousers. :D

Beautiful ties and photos! First time I've seen an A-rig on one hook.

Wow. Those are some absolutely gorgeous flies. Keep at it, if for no other reason than to give the rest of the world some eye candy.
