But now an even bigger addiction, fly tying. With some help from fellow YakAnglers, Jezduet and Aggroman, I have the basics to start tying! I started with an easy streamer pattern. I used white, brown and green bucktail. With the guidance from friends and YouTube videos I learned the basics and went after it. I felt the addiction grow with every wrap of thread! I am happy with the first streamer and am excited to work on perfecting it.
After talking with a co-worker who ties quite a few flies and even teaches tying classes for Trout Unlimited, he helped me understand the basics and offered some suggestions. I haven’t had a chance to tie again, but am very excited to give it a shot.
I would love to hear from you! What suggestions do you have for a newbie fly guy?
