Last evening, I had to give a tying session on pike flies at
“The Hawthorn Fly Fishing and Fly Tying Team”. And it was a great success!
I even broke two records: one, it was the longest tying session they ever had, and two, we only tied 3 flies (yeah well, that’s the difference between pike flies and nymphs, I guess).
Everybody was very enthusiastic, for which I’m very grateful, because I was really nervous to start (because these people are no amateurs when it comes to fly-tying!).
So thanks a lot guys!
Here we are, halfway a ‘Lonesome Tom’ pattern.
They were particularly interested in the possibilities of brass wire dubbing brushes.
I have to admit that it felt really good to be appreciated in this way.
So… up to the next one
(which is next week)…
