There is nothing more beautiful than catch a fish on handmade fly
I would like to share my knowledge about fly tying showing you how to tie different kinds of flies.
In the previous article I wrote what flytyer should have on his or her bench. Now it’s time to present basic materials which we need to create particular flies. Let’s start!
To make a dry flies we need:
·         Natural cdc feathers – for the imitation of fly wings
·         Cock Neck natural capes (brown and grizzly) – hackles and tails
·         Peacock quill – body
·         Floss in different colours -body
·         Condor substitute - body
To make a wet flies we need:
·         Hen capes ( black, brown) and back feathers of partridge – hackles and tails
·         Wings of pheasant and mallard – wings
·         Tinsel for segmentation – gold, silver
·         Dubbing in different colours and hare’s mask - for back
To make nymphs we need:
·         Tungsten beads – gold, silver, copper, black, pink in different various sizes, cheaper brass beads are also available
·         Lead tinsels with different thicknesses 0,5mm to 0,8 mm
·         Body strech in colours such as green , olive green , orange , beige on body and collars
·         Dubbing in different colours
·         Pheasant tail for body
·         The peacock tail for body
·         Wires in different colours for segmentation
To make streamers we need:
·         The marabout feathers in different colours
·         Chenille in different colours for body
·         Hare’s stripe for zonker wings
·         Cock and hen saddle hackles also for wings
·         Tinsels in different colours for segmentation
·         Roe deer coat natural or dyed for streamers head
·         Tungsten beads, cone heads size 4 to 7
 
In addition to these basic materials we will also find a lot of new stuff like different kinds of synthetic materials and glues.
As time passes, you will be able to recognise useful materials and shoe box won’t be enough to keep it all.I really encourage to visit florists and haberdasheries where you can buy interesting and cheap materials for fly tying. I’m still seeking new materials and even looking at the carpet I’m wondering what kind of fly I can create using it 😉
Today we will make a  muddler, this fly is very effective during early spring, it seems to be hard to tie at the beginning but I hope that my video will help you.
What we need:
Head: Roe deer natural
Hook: Top Fly 6#
Wing: Hare’s stripe
Tail: marabou pink feather
Lead tinsel: 0,8 mm
Copper wire for segmentation
Golden thread 0,3 mm for body
Epoxy Eyes
Loon UV knot sense for harden the head
UV flashlight

Catching dreams on a fly.
The morning did not start very well right away, with only a few forage fish and very “indifferent” fish. My companions did so many launches, but with no result...
