Wondering if those that said they would not use a nymph that does not follow traditional proportions, have ever tried a nymph with a longer tail, or if this is just done from what you have read out of a book or magazine some where. I have used both and tied flies both following standard proportions and the longer tails and thicker bodies, like those on the hares ear. From my own personal testing, these work better for me.

Mike, of course most of us have used flies that we tied that were not proportionally right. It is part of the learning curve when we are becoming better tyers. We do not sell them to people though. Yes...they will catch fish. However, you are testing them on stocked pellet heads. I would say the body proportions are your bigger problem and not the tails as much.

In regards to the repeat satisfied customers.....that is fine and dandy, but the point is to grow a business. Not keep selling to the ones that are not knowledgeable about tying and what nymphs are supposed to look like.

Edit: Now why did you go and delete your whole comment? I was trying to have a nice conversation with you.

Becker. I sent you a pm as I would rather converse about this through pm.

You are making valid points with you response and did not want to delete all of the comment but I hit cut instead of copy. .

Every year I tie up some new flies and I always hate the ones I did the previous year.

You learn with time and practice and you never stop learning.

Let you in on one little secret...it's not all ablout catching fish....
Here's something to try...tie 2 dozen flies..all the same pattern & size. If one looks a little different, or they ALL don't look the same..you still have a ways to go. They ALL should look like copies of each other.

I typically do not tie the flies for customers as i do my own. I take more time on theirs and follow propotions more. These are more my own personal preferences as I said.


why do you have separate rules for customers and yourself?

wouldnt it be adventageous for you and your customers to have the same rules and tie better flies?
