Fly Tying: Working the Kinks Out

I tied very little during the Summer. Most of my tying last year was in the Winter and trailed off into Spring as I assessed my fly boxes as pretty much complete. This past Spring/Summer really didn’t deplete my boxes that much. 

I have a partial tying ‘to do’ list in mind to include: some larger baitfish patterns for some Bass that need a comeuppance; Damsel dries (the few I had took a beating and provided some of the most fun dry fly fishing I have had in years); smaller-micro style Leech patterns in assorted colors; some basic Steelhead patterns probably with stinger hooks. I tied so much last time that I am stocked.

So, today I did what isn’t always productive for me…I just randomly tied and created and really did it to keep my rusty hand into tying. It showed I was rusty and disorganized. But, I always am when I lay off for several months. Now more disconcerting than my fumbling fingers is my fumbling eyesight and focusing the camera anymore. The slight blur is annoying. That will definitely be something to maybe improve upon this Winter…my macro work.
