Back at the bench

It’s the last day of March and tomorrow is the first day of the new fishing season. That has also meant I have been at my tying vice making flies. The majority of the flies have been pheasant tail nymphs tied the traditional way with just copper wire and pheasant tail. Additionally, I have tied some blue wing olives, midget larvae, and green humpies. To get over tying small flies I tied up some yellow Dorothy’s, a streamer that I found highly successful in New Zealand. Additionally, I have been getting back into salmon flies, both for fishing as well as display. The two small salmon flies are Green Highlanders and the larger fly is just a practice fly of my own making.
