Flyfishing/Flytying

What are you wanting to know. I started flyfishing about 18 years ago and tying about 14 ago. Most of what I know is for trout.

I also flyfish and tie flies, mostly for river cutthroats. Brown drake paradrakes seem to work best for us here.

"Hairwing Coachman" and a "Joe's Hopper". They work everywhere. But you really need to have all those other's so you can buy a neat fly box. Nothing is more impressive than a guy pondering his fly box trying to match the hatch. Then nust pull out one of the two above and cast with a knowing look! Big smile

My husband has taken over a whole room in our house with his fly tying equipment - and now you're telling me that all he needed was the "Hairwing Coachman" and a "Joe's Hopper"!

Wait until I talk to him in the morning! He's got some 'splaining to do. Laugh

Seriously... he's got more "stuff" than most women have for their craft hobbies!

Uh oh.......... Um Cowgal? I heard those Colorado trout are more finicky than most, so he probably really does need all that stuff. lol (good luck Mr. Cowgal)

I don't tie flies myself, only my husband. He's a diehard flyfisherman and will only flyfish, even for saltwater fish. No bait or lures for him.

I on the other hand call myself an "opportunistic" fisher-person, I will fish with whatever will catch fish for me. Big smile
