    fly tying

    I'm a beginner at flytyeing but my granddad gave me some stuff to borrow to make some flies. I looked on this website for some help:Learn Fly Tying
    so I made one that is on this web site and the rest I just made up.
    These are the flies I made:

    Some nice work matey keep up the good work. Little tip if you try to tie a wooly bugger and that is greenish coloured crystal flash tied in under the marabou tail as a trigger point and tie the hackle and the chenile in together then twist until hackle sticks up, then wrap the chenile and hackle twisted together on the body of the fly and tie off with your favourite knot. If I lived close by I would demo it for ya to give you a better idea. The wooly bugger tip I gave you used to totally slay the trout at the Awahou mouth in Rotorua.

    Forget the dry flies for now. They are a bitch and need some special tools and material to do right. With the rest good job. Often more is less so don't get carried away just look at the old favourite HnC.

    Great hobby to get into, u can use almost anything for materials, carpet fluff, pet fur, so on
    I havent fished with flies for ages but still keep tying them, make my own flasher rigs for sprats and snapper too, heaps of flash, works great

    The 3rd one looks to be the ticket for Waikaremoana at present because my mate says a palmered hackle wooly bugger is slaying them up there at present.
