  1. I tie flies that are not used much in America. I am Welsh, Irish and German heratidge. I have serval good books from a book company in the u.k. I will provide a link. Far as materials some are already in the USA. I'll also provide links I use to buy u.k tying supply from Tying stuff,- https://www.lathkill.com/index.php?shopping_cart=yes https://www.lakelandflytying.com/ Great source for birds with feathers. https://www.cookshill-flytying.co.uk/ Books https://www.anglebooks.com/
  2. I want to know if any one had experience with a rig kit called an ultra rig. I think people who bass with baitcasters with bass jigs is an example some can relate too. As some may know my tying is getting more wide every year. Meaning my flies I tie and different styles of flies expands every year I tie. So with that being said. I've been tying traditional steelhead/ salmon style flies and used some to catch largemouth and small mouth bass. But this year my interest is in things like trout spey, swing flies, shank flies, things of that nature. I was wondering if anyone on here who tie flies and jigs to see if anyone has tied these style of flies for bass. I'll put a link to the video of the ultra rig. Thanks everyone have a great day.

  4. Thanks everyone here are some I've been catching bass on. Caght two large mouth bass yesterday in a pond I've been fishing 18+ years. I got loads of fox and coyote and some flash in the jigs. The bass where less than a pound but still fun. The jig on the left is like what I caght the bass on. It's coyote tail and some flash from deer creek.
  5. Hello my name is Colin I live in Central IL. I've been tying for about 10 years. And I was wondering if you spin or baitcast fishermen and women , if anyone would like to share some color combos and size of jig head you fish with. I don't tie to much far as jigs go. But again I would like to know what size jig head the size hook people use. Also would like to know where to buy good jig heads since I don't pour my own and don't have proper equipment to do so. I fish mainly ponds for crappie, bluegill and largemouth bass and every now and then creeks for carp and smallmouth bass. I do also fly fish most of the time. I do sell my own to people who want them. I just wanted to know what people whom don't fly fish, what people fish with. I'll put pictures on this post for people to see. Lastly I need advice on how I can be a better tier. Thanks everyone have a great day and night
