Fly Tying



Fly Tying

Spey&Dee and Atlantic Salmon Flies

Traditional Wet Flies

Dry Flies



















I have been tying flies for around a year now. I have tried just about every type of fly that can be tied, some with success, some with horrible failure. 

I attempt to tie, (when I can), around an hour a day. Sometimes I tie for much longer but find I get tired and start making mistakes, or taking shortcuts that lead to a lesser quality fly.

I have found some very useful advise in a lot of places but a lot of tying is trial and error. The one piece of advice I hold onto at all times is: 

"try to tie the best fly you have ever tied, every time"

These are some examples of Spey flies I have tied.

These are some Salmon flies that I am starting to get into now, they need a lot of work. I have discovered that the big issue with salmon flies is:

1. Getting enough information to be able to tie them correctly, (instruction is hard to come by).

2. Getting all of the tools and materials that will be needed.
