Hello all, this weekend has been full of fly tying in between work and fishing. I have actually only tied 5 all weekend, but found a new skill set I'd never begin to imagine. I have always preferred bait fish patterns while my father and only person I tie with preferred the bugs. I came across some Fish Mask and Fish Skulls, and love them.
Here is an Articulated Mullet pattern I recently finished-
And a blue gill-
And lastly, a threadfin type shad-
I have been praised by the Father and Step mother, but I feel I am getting an Artist over Angler sense of being. I guess we are our own worst critics.
BTW- I could never get the fish skull in the mullet to sit right. The fish masks are great!
