    Default Average tying time

    Guys

    For interest sake. How long does it take you to tie a basic fly? Lets say a basic GRHE!

    Ok Korrie here is the edit: With lead, a bead and one basic colour!

    So the Question is: How long does it take you to tie a basic GRHE?

    Cheers

    Depending if there is a bead, lead wire, diffirent color dubbing for the head, hotspot etc, between 1 min and 2 min.

    Proably 1 min and 30 seconds.
    But then I have to tie at least 5.
    To sit and tie 1 only, that is a nightmare.
    Find the thread, to get the right size bead. Looking for the right thickness lead wire. Then it could be even 5 minutes.

    Lately its been taking me ages, like a few weeks or so, seeing as i have run out of hooks, dubbing, and dont have any beads

    Under 5 minutes unless you're adding beads and weight and superglue.

    I don't know about u supermen but anything under 5min will produce a pretty "slim" fly.

    Result = "Fishing a bit slow in the Parys area"

    More than 5 less than 10.

    If you rush to get a fly done it doesnt create the joy its supposed to create.

    Have just spent a hour or so yesterday tying some the Tom Sutcliff way , illustrated in his book. Once I had the "feel" , around 4 minutes for a basic copy.
    But i get bored very quickly tying the same pattern repeatedly. Tied 3 this morning quickly , and the were quite sexy.... lets hope those fish at Sterkies think so ..

    Depending on my mood and not weighting or using a bead, 4-5 min. I speed tie at times, but never rush tie.
