fly tying

  1. Fly Fishing
    Hey. If anyone is looking for flies for this crazy time I have a ton of flies that I would sell for good prices and can tie anything you’d want. If anyone is interested send me a message. I have lots more pictures.

    Would like to know what you are using to tie flies. I have been using a Griffin Patriot Vise for about 30 years. I paid $90 for it back in 1989 and it is a rotary vise and will hold just about any hook and has jaws that came with it for flies using < 22 size hooks. It is still going strong but I...

    Well from Texas, native born, saltwater fisherman mostly inshore along the upper mid coast. Use to make surfboards and surf a lot on the mainland Pacific coast of Mexico (Michoacan, Colima, Oaxaca & Guerrero) in the 80s. Would run out of food and had to spear fish or catch them to eat. You get...

    What are you guys using for a tying lamp when you're traveling? Never had a need before, but currently I have a need for something bright, but not huge or cumbersome to travel with. Clamp mount or desk top is fine. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Well you guys were an awesome help with the new vice, cant wait for it to get here! Since i'm already upgrading vices, I was looking at upgrading some other aspects of my tying supplies. I know nothing about UV cured resins as far as what is good, what you really need, and how much to spend. I...

    Could not have come at a worse time. I was tying some flies and my vice broke. Like beyond repair. I had the Griffin Odyssey Spider. I really liked it but i tend to clamp down on my large saltwater flies pretty good and finally after a few years of use, the clamp snapped. I am going to order a...

    Was in Forgotten Coast Fly Co. today, buying materials. I mentioned this place as a good source of material in another thread but thought it deserved it's own thread after my trip there today. I bought some of the nicest bucktail I've ever found, prices are on par with other stores the...

    Looking to not spend $60 on a kit. I'm sure some of you have some blue UV light kits that work just fine for curing gel/goo/epoxy for flies (and fast curing). Ideally a cheaper kit that has everything I need. Thanks. -Andrew

    Not sure if everyone else has already seen or heard of this but I hadn't and thought it was cool, so here it is. I stopped to see some guys I used to tie with but haven't seen in a while. When I got there they had these mops and wash rags out using the pieces for bodies of flies. They are...

    I'm always looking for a better way to do something if I'm not totally satisfied with what I'm working with. I'm still a big fan of Sally Hanson's Hard as Nails for various things like finishing head wraps. I'm constantly looking for better super glue since they all have their problems...
