    Default Flies i tied

    Just some flies i tied this weekend.. Bear in mind i am still a novice at tying, and make do with the materials i have, hence the strange looking flies of my own design following other designs..


    Edit: Now i am Almost out of hooks. and running out of cottons, will have to wait for the holidays to get hold of some and have the time to tie up some more..

    HI Andrew,

    Well done, flies look good and will improve even more the more you tie.

    Nicely done! Some interesting creations you've tied there.

    Just one question...why is your caddis/rock worm imitations so thick/bulky? Did you add lots of lead? (I'll give you my reason for asking after you answered me)

    Now go and try them! See which one is your favourite fish taker (I have a hunch which one it will be but I would like to see the pictures of the fish with the fly in the mouth first!)

    Very nice Andrew. Well done boet. If these (which are fantastic) are your 1st flies, you are certainly going to be in demand.

    Hi, UM embarassingly i dont quiet know which fly you are refering to..

    The ones with Mustard colour Chennelle is thick cause the Chenelle is a thick one.. no lead on them.. only 2 with lead was the Deer hair bug, and the Rubber band Control(top right)..
