First Flies   2 comments

I’ve taken up fly tying recently to augment the lack of fishing opportunities over the winter. I’ve found it to be a great way to learn about what trout eat and it is a nice, relaxing, family-friendly hobby.

Here are some pictures of my first flies, called Adams flies.

I’ll be tying many more and I’ll post pictures of them too. Last night I worked on one called a “Green Monster” but it looks a little bit too “monstrous”. I’m sure I’ll get better and better at it with time, which is the kind of gratification I need.
