Belair,

I don't know if you've been to backwaterangler.com lately but those guys are offering tying classes right now...


Yeah, I saw that. I was out of town for the last one. The other shop near the Gunpowder, Greatfeathers, specializes in tying materials. They have room after room of stuff. The owner and staff are all very serious tiers.

Great Feathers is a good place to shop...


Don't under estimate the "process of self discovery". It is vital that you establish a tying style of your "own" early in devolpment...


The best things in fly fishing cannot be bought only earned...

Well, I tied my first fly last night. A few olive scuds with some flashback for the skin. They look like they might catch fish, but I def need to work on tails and practice dubbing. Thanks for the help everyone.

And so it begins! (the addiction) That first fish you catch on your OWN fly will be that much more satisfying. Congrats!

Hi Andy - I'll bet that scud catches fish. Make sure you save your first fly that you catch something on.

If you'd like, maybe we could all get together at Charlie's shop to do a little tying. Sometimes it's easier to see something done in person, rather than trying to learn out of a book.

I want in on that.

Andy,

I believe I showed you some of my scuds. I only tied tails in a few of them, and they all work. I would bet that you can already tie flies that catch fish... from here on out, it's tying to impress yourself.

I agree with HA.
Even though there is all kinds of tying info available now - in books and on the web - I recommend taking a tying class.
I did it in 1984. There is still a lot to be said for one on one tying instruction. And, it was a lot of fun to boot.

This tying "get together" is looking pretty good to me. I'm supposed to go fishing with a couple guys here this weekend, but Saturday is looking a bit cold for my tastes.

I'll give Charlie a call to find out if there's anything going on at the shop, and if he'll let us tie there (he's easy ). I'll post a new thread inviting anyone interested when I know for sure.......stay tuned.
