Another handful of anchor flies for the winter box. . . . . . . . #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingaddict #flytyingjunkie


I fish quite a bit of soft hackled flies, but if there was one pattern that continuously fish; it would be the quill bodied soft hackle. I change the color and size throughout the year but the pattern itself never changes. Tied with @lagartun_ltd 95D thread and Coated with Solarez UV thin. #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #softhackle #flytyingaddict


How to wrap a polish quill: I receive many questions about this technique; as some tyers have expressed that no matter how they do it, it still seems to come out wrong. So here’s my advice when working with polish quills: if you tie this in as per the first few steps and it still isn’t working to your liking and/or you cannot figure out why its wrapping ‘upside down’- then please take a look at this step-by-step(link is in my bio) Because depending on your style of tying -it will benefit you to find out if are you an “over the material tyer” or if you are a “to the side of the material” wrapper when it comes to tying with certain material. Doing so; then adjusting it to your needs will help you acheive the outcome you are looking for. #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingaddict #polishquills @regal_vise #regalvise

One dozen flies headed to @lagartun_ltd In Canada to be combined with many others and auctioned off to help raise money for steelhead habitat. Formed in 1970 by a group of dedicated Steelhead anglers concerned about the state of wild steelhead stocks and the wild rivers of British Columbia, the Steelhead Society is a charitable non-profit river conservation organization. The Society has evolved to advocate for the health of all wild salmonids and wild rivers in British Columbia. The Steelhead Society's mandate is to encourage the conservation and restoration of wild fish and the wild rivers they inhabit. To this end, the Steelhead Society has been able to form alliances and partnerships with First Nations; Federal and Provincial government agencies, politicians, forestry companies, grass roots organizations, media, and outdoor equipment manufacturers. These alliances encourage awareness of the sensitivity of watersheds and their inhabitants, with a unified goal of improving damaged habitats for the greater good of all involved parties. The Steelhead Society is dedicated to the ongoing advocacy of environmental education, stream restoration, dam decommissioning options, maintaining flow rates, mitigating the effects of hatchery programs, effective control of the Aquaculture Industry, as well as holding government and public agencies responsible for the natural heritage rivers provide. 100% of all funds raised go to habitat projects in BC. #flyfishing #flytying #steelhead #lagartuntinsel #lagartunltd @steelheadsocietybc @lagartun_ltd


Tomorrow, Saturday, November 4th at 1 PM I will be giving a fly tying demonstration during the Arts of the Angler show, which is being held at the Ethan allen hotel in Danbury Connecticut. I will be demonstrating different fly patterns using the Flymen Fishing Company Wiggle Shanks. These Shanks give more movement to your nymphs and emergers that can help entice some of those picky trout. If you’re in the area please stop over and enjoy the show! There Will be two days full of fly tying demonstrations and presentations from many people. So as I always recommend; grab yourself a notebook, a pen and bring all of your questions; as there is a wealth of knowledge out there that many of us enjoy sharing with you!! @cffcm @flymenfishingco #flyfishing #flytying


Ah yes, Fall is here. That means Sunny afternoons dropping into the pockets for large bass and watching others slam top water as you glide over the lily pads.. getting rapped in the back of the skull with flies and then stung by bees every 20 minutes because ‘someone’ spilled a redbull in the boat.. and finally.. catching a magical glimpse of these two lovebirds “refueling” in mid air before landing on the oars. Fall. 🛩👉🏻🛫🛬👌🏻✈️ It’s officially here. • • • • • • • 🤣 #isthatso #youdontsay #pumpkinspiceeverything #doyouevenknowherfirstname #sothatshowitsdone #iguessivebeendoingitallwrong #censored #youmustbegoodatyoga 🤣 #sorrytodisturbyou #fall #bassfishing #lakefishing #flyfishing


I’ve received a lot of questions lately as to working with Turkey biots, so I have posted a link in my bio to a previous step-by-step; complete with troubleshooting photos. It will also take you to troubleshooting post about creating a uniform underbody. I hope this tutorial helps answer some of your questions and takes the fear out of working with this material! #flyfishing #flytying

I’ve had a lot of inquiries into where you can purchase the coloring and activity book I designed and illustrated for the @cffcm called “It’s All About Fly Fishing”. They can be purchased directly from the Museums gift shop in Livingston Manor NY, or online through @dettetroutflies store 🎉⭐️ Link is in my bio⭐️ And I’m sure your kids will have as much fun coloring these pages, as I had illustrating them! • • • • • • #flytying #flyfishing #flyfishingart #coloringbook #flytyingjunkie #catskills #trout #browntrout #rainbowtrout #brooktrout #mayfly

I am by no means an expert. As much as I enjoy tying, and as much as I am immersed in the learning and the teaching aspect of it; I am not afraid to say that I don’t know everything. Being able to expand our knowledge is what keeps many of us behind our vise. I have seen people pick apart other tyers work (and I don't mean constructive criticism) You know what I mean I'm sure you have seen it. But don't let that discourage you as a tyer. I want to share with those beginning, some Flies that I had tied within the first few weeks of me starting, and more are up on my blog. I myself, even now, am not afraid to ask questions, or to say that I dont know and that is something you shouldn’t be afraid of either. Ask them, and ask them proudly. Ask them knowing that someone next to you may have the same question but be afraid to ask. And if you find that your questions are treated with disrespect and sneers? Then you simply ask someone else. Don’t let the response of one or two hold you back from learning, because the majority of fly tyers enjoy teaching and passing what knowledge we have, onto others. I am not ashamed to be sitting at my table, tying a at a show, and not have the answer to a question I am asked. I have been known to look around the room for someone that DOES know that answer; and accompany that person so that we can both find out the pressing topic. I don’t see the shame in it, because truthfully; I enjoy it. I have many questions that I sometimes forget to ask in my busy life, but to be able to stand there with that same person and learn side-by-side with them, to me isn’t a downside. Its an upside. Because now we both know the answer to a question, that five minutes ago neither of us didn’t. I’m OK with all of this, and you should be too. But too often I find people would rather sacrifice the knowledge they could have acquired, by holding back a question in fear of sounding like a ‘beginner’ or an ‘idiot’ in front of others. The bottom line is, “We all began as beginners”. #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingaddict #flytyingjunkie
