    Fly tying and fishing

    Hello everyone I apologize for not posting anything in such a long time . Been busy tying loads of flies. My freind Jim Zoreb came to my house today and gave me some materials to try. Am guessing he tanned them himself. I have been playing with the Raccoon piece Jim has given me. So i just tied up 2 flies and probably will tie another 3. I Mite try them at a creek near my house which is called sugar creek. Witch i guess goes out towards indiana cuzz there's sugar creek there i have heard. The flies are parachute type dry flies and i'll list the recipe of what i used. As a side note I caught a 4 or 5 pound largemouth bass and as well as a couple crappie on the tuesday before thanksgiving on a size 6 mickey finn tied a little differently than the original fly is tied. Jim said i may be able to demonstrate how to tie it in January if we have the get together. Well i hope you guys and gal's enjoy this post and happy tying and tight lines

    the tying event in bloomington

    i have a couple new tying tips. I learned from a friend from the U.K. His name is Paul Slaney. Everyone should see how he ties and how much he buys ( far as the amount of stuff he buys at 1 time) He showed me a picture of 32 hen capes he bought( all at one time). i'll see if i can ask him for some pictures of his flies. He fishes mainly Salmon and trout but man can he tie

    Dragonfly and Meat !

    I've really getting into to tying dragonflies and damselflies but not dry. There are loads of blue damsels and pale or dark olive one's and loads of rust / amber or orange one's around my usual fishing hole.. The Ponds apartments here in bloomington IL on G.E. road. There are two ponds . I use my coyote fly and use a wine or red thread. cuzz there seems to be a purple/caret colored dragon fly...the only way to explain the color is like an ISO color but on a dragon fly and man those fish nail it aggressively. i'll post some pictures soon of the flies i use. take care and don't be scarred on trying new things.If you fly tie i'll be more than happy to show you all how to tie.If any of you just PM me or E-mail me at colindanenberger01@gmail.com
