Fly Gallery

I’ll include flies here as I post their descriptions & tying instructions in blog posts.
I don’t consider myself very skilled, or innovative, at tying – I tie flies that
– are easy & quick to tie
– sink, or float, or otherwise, as appropriate
– hold up in use
– look good enough to inspire my confidence to keep them tied to my tippet & in the water
– & most importantly, catch fish
This growing collection contains some of my favorites, including patterns collected from here & there & a few I’ve stumbled on myself, mostly when messing up trying to tie an existing pattern.
