So...I love fly fishing, I love building things (especially things I can fish with), I love art, and I love catching Guadalupe Bass. I guess it was only natural for me to attempt to tie my own flies for Guadalupe Bass.
I had no idea what I was doing, I have never really tied my own flies before, and I am sure that I don't have all the materials that I need, but here is what I came up with:
This was my attempt at a Grasshopper type Dry Fly:
Next was my attempt at a minnow:
Then was another minnow with hackle:
Then I decided to work on a Crawdad pattern. Think about the way this will look in the water, and it will look better to you (I hope):
And finally I decided to make a small Sunfish patterned fly:
Well, that's what I came up with yesterday. I would LOVE to hear you thoughts, comments, suggestions, etc. Anything to help me improve would be appreciated.
