March, 2016..."Fly Tying Basics, Techniques, Tips & Tricks"

ANATOMY OF A FLY HOOK

So, I’ve decided on a new monthly blog entry called “Fly Tying Basics, Techniques, Tips & Tricks”. I thought it might be fun to help beginning tiers learn to tie and as they progress, tie even better flies. These entries won’t be the “end all be all” but rather a way of getting you started and if you want more information, at least give you a direction in which to go. Feel free to comment and ask questions…I hope you find it useful! The first installment is entitled Anatomy of a Fly Hook.

Kings Bay Notes

One of the most frequented fishing spots here in Central Florida by our kayaking and boating club members is Kings Bay.

SELECTING THE RIGHT FLY TYING TOOLS

For the month of April, “Fly Tying Basics, Techniques, Tips & Tricks”, we’ll focus on fly tying tools. I’m a firm believer in having the right tool for the job and it’s no different in fly tying. Get decent tools from the start and you won’t be disappointed. I’ve listed what I feel are essential tools to get started and I’ve also listed tools nice to have but not essential. This is not an all-inclusive list of all the fly tying tools you'll ever need. This is simply a list of tools that will get you started and will allow you to tie the majority of the flies that you'll tie in your first couple of years.
