Fly Tying: Casual Dress(es)

Casual Dress Patterns by Anthony Naples

Not sure how I missed this piece of work by Anthony Naples. But, more important than the nice pattern options are a few sentences that summarize so well the fly tying experience:

“Well, as many of you can probably attest, fly tyers have trouble sticking to the recipe.  We feel the urge to add a little bit of this, a little dash of that – it’s part of the fun….The possible variations are endless.  Are they necessary?  Probably not.  The original will catch lots of fish for you.  But flytying is a  lot like the blues, and rock-and-roll.  It’s the same three chords, endlessly tinkered with.  And every once in a while a classic is born.  So get the fingers loosened, practice some scales, learn a couple of chords and create your own classic.”  Very nicely phrased!!!!


Fly Fishing & New Blood (A Commitment for Sure)


I realize there are many organizations & clubs that endeavor to draw in new blood to the sport via short term clinics and club events. The use of a school system and several committed volunteers for three sessions a month is an impressive commitment. Such a system would best be situated near suitable waters to hold interest and offer possible successes. The Pertshire effort seems quite admirable. I am sure there are other similar programs.

“It’s very community-spirited,” explained Fiona yesterday. “There’s seven or eight coaches who all give up their time and expertise for free, we couldn’t do it without them….AFYD courses are springing-up all over the country now, they’re proving to be really popular….I think parents like it because it gets their kids outside in the fresh air and keeps them occupied….If they want, they can take the skills they learn here and use them to gain other qualifications which will help them in later life.”  Pertshire & Kids Angling
