Why Nymph-O didn’t get to have a Christmas….

16 Feb

wHY?  He didn’t know how to make Flies that would catch Santa Claus.

With old man winter still dry humping the hell out of the East this year, more snow on the way here in WV by the way, I’ve spent a lot of time on the fly tying bench as well as learning some new knots, and how to make furled leaders.  My newest project, Tying Musky, Pike, Bass and anything in the salt that will eat a big fly, has been in the works for about 3 weeks now with help from Mrs Google’s vast research capabilities.  Best part is that the flies used for the previously described fishies is basically interchangeable given the proper materials.  A BIG THanks to Mr Hise at Casters Fly Shop for the help!!!  So with empty Cliff boxes, hooks that look like they could land a mako shark, plenty of material, my computer set up to walk to through the steps of fly tying evolution (how to add a weed guard) I began my journey.  It’s kinda nice to go from 8/0 and 10/0 thread on hook sizes’ in the 20’s to 5/0 to 2 hook sizes and thread you could tow a Toyota with.  Life on the fly bench, despite being sticky from epoxy, is enjoyable again.

Here is the backbone for tying the ANgel Hair.
