It’s Friday, so grab your cup of coffee (or other favorite morning beverage) and enjoy our selection for today.
March came in like a lion, and isn’t quite going out like a lamb. Maybe “out like a lion cub” is more appropriate? Anyway, it was a fun month at the vice to be tying up some new and old patterns for the boxes. Read on!
After the long trudge of January, February always seems to move pretty quickly. The deer hair experiments that I had set out to do didn’t quite happen, but I did have some time to sit down at the vice and tie up some experimental patterns as well as necessary ones to fill the box.
We’ve started out February portion of the Fly Tying Video Feature series, and have videos cued up for Mondays and Wednesdays throughout the month. We hope you’ve been enjoying the series so far!
Thanksgiving is done, deer season is in full swing, and Christmas is only a few weeks away! Read on to find out what’s been coming from the vice this past month.
After a warm Indian Summer that proved to be hotter than most (all?) of August, we’re finally getting fall temps the past two days. Here are the flies from the vice this month – some fun experimentation on patterns, nothing earth-shattering.
Where did the past month go? Hard to believe that we’re already on September’s doorstep. The weather has been on the cooler side the past two weeks, giving us a taste of fall.
Over the past two months I’ve had some time here and there to do some experimenting with different fly patterns amidst the normal tying. No originality is claimed on any of these, since they’re all based (to varying degrees) on existing patterns. It’s always good to experiment!
This week is our first Fly Tying Video Week (FTVW for short): each day we’ll be posting 4-5 videos of fly patterns to help get your creativity flowing at the vise. Day 2 is all about streamers (the slightly more “traditional” ones).
