In the coming weeks, and months we will present
tips and techniques to make your fly tying
experience easier and more enjoyable.
We will endeavor to assist you in becoming a better
fly tyer, regardless of your current skill level.
Those of you who are new to tying flies will find
much useful information here. Those of you who are
old hands may well have your memory jogged, and an
old idea, which you never put to use, may finally
come to fruition.
Some of these tips will involve tools, aids to tying,
techniques for performing certain operations and
anything else which strikes our fancy and might be
of use to you at your bench.
Where possible, photo illustration will be utilized
to show you exactly what we are doing, so that you may
more fully understand the ideas presented.
If at any time you have a question, feel free to
I answer all mail and will try to get you the
answers you deserve.
Hopefully you will be able to participate from time
to time in making suggestions for this area. All
suggestions are appreciated, and may well be published,
in which case you will be credited with having submitted
the tip, or technique.
If you have any tips or techniques, send them along,
most of this material has been stolen from somebody,
might as well steal your ideas too!
