The Ramblings of a Fly Fisherman

Starting to Tie!

Recently, I have been attempting to tie my own flies in an effort to improve my entomology skills and my experience within the sport of fly fishing. I have started with Charlie Craven’s book entitled Basic Fly Tying, Modern Techniques for Flies that Catch Fish. I feel that this particular book has a very good teaching process and the images that outline the walkthroughs are incredible. Charlie’s shop is located in Old Town Arvada and he is a great guy always willing to show you a few pointers.

So far, the experience has been a good one, and I look forward to improving this skill.

Here are a few of the patterns that I have been tying.
