Wow,
I feel like I just wasted 15 minutes of my life reading this thread.


Might I suggest a speed reading book or at least one that can get you up to average person speed?

I have a new fly I just came up with. It has thin strips of bacon wrapped up the hook. The collar is dubbed with scrambled eggs and the head is made out of buttered toast molded at the eye of the hook. I call it the mc bacon egger. It is used to catch trout in the early mornings before they have a chance to have a cup of coffee.

I'll attempt to be constructive here. Not that I think anyone cares at this point, but the material is clearly too far down the bend of the hook. I'm curious how you clamp your hooks in the vise. If you are clamping that far down towards the point you are stressing the metal on the weakest section of the hook. I know that you have never had a hook break, but less experienced tyers might want to consider this and use a more standard positioning of the hook in the vise (at least until they hit the 5000 hook/year point).
On a slightly less constructive note, 10,000 hooks/year would require tying more than 1 fly per hour every day 24/7. That sure is a lot of tying!

Well, the flies in question are basic caddis larva-type flies that any average tyer could probably whip up in less than five minutes, so that number might not be all that unrealistic.

I do tie more than 1 fly a day. haha Actually I do go through about 10,000 hooks a year. I try and get at least 4 to eight dozen tied a day. Plus those caddis that were pictured on this thread probably took a little over a minute to tie each. They are quick ties that can fill up your fly box with a variety of colors and are not hard on the wallet. Isn't that the name of the game anyways have a huge variety that you can tie cheap so if you break off then who cares. Plus the picture angle makes the bend look shorter. The tubing actually is is a little above center on the bend. With the barb intact this is plenty of room to hook and hold a fish.

Tying 4 to 8 dozen flies a day will make you go insane. I'm living proof.

Well, yeah, he's not tying anything complex, but still that is more than 2 dozen flys/day every day. I'm not saying it is impossible, just that it is a lot of tying for someone of his particular talent.

Yes, 1 fly/hour... But seriously, how do you clamp your hooks in the vise and still get the tubing that far around the bend?

Click to see original Image in a new window

supposed to be a top seller on my flies in links.
Description: The Electric Caddis - Beadhead's translucent effect underwater (like that of the natural) is in part, what makes this fly so productive. I incorporate Ultrawire, in different colors, inserted inside of hollow tubing (stretch tubing) wrapped over an underbody of tying thread with a Realfly™ colored bead for the head. The Electric Caddis-Beadhead is a must in any serious angler's fly box, especially during the fall and winter months.
