    Default My First Flies

    Hi all

    Got my vice and some materials last week.
    Check out my first attempt at some buzzers.

    Sizes 10 -14

    Sorry about the poor quality image I used my phone.

    Nothing wrong with those flies.
    Looks much better than my first try at flytying

    Great first flies, way better than my early efforts!
    Keep working on your skills and you'll soon by tying complex patterns like a champ.

    Nice going there Stan.

    For your first flies those are excellent, they will very much catch fish!

    Nice flies. Youre doing well. One thing...watch out for the over wrapping of thread behind the bead. Get this right, they will be perfect.
    Having said that, this is a cosmetic criticism, and they will all catch fish.
