4th Monday Bassbuggers Fly Tie


Recommended Posts

Just a reminder that we will be tieing flies in John Loebach's heated garage in Lombard, IL on Monday 2/28/11. Meet at 6pm, start tieing at 6:30pm.

If all works as planned, AirborneMike Allen will be doing the demo-ing. (Still working out the details.)


Come on out for the comraderie, story-telling and just plain fun.

The fly I will be tying will be a "rear wieghted Deciever" that Rich Mc turned me on to. Dave Sellers from the west coast tyes this up and is fairly snag proof with great deciever like qualities.

That fly just hooked me!!!!!!

Is there still room for a newbie to join and Slow everyone down? I now own a vise :) and that so far is all. But by being around others ( that in my opinion are tying books each) will teach me so much more faster and I will quickly learn what works and what does'nt. what to buy.

Looks great...I plan to attend.


I think as far as tools go, a bobbin is great to have....but if you look at the old time tyers....they didn't have them. You can tie with just a vice and scissors....but get the tools if you can...the process will be much easier.

Thank you, thank you, thanks!



I was a little nervous in the begining but really was welcomed nicely. Thank you John for hosting.

Yes I tied a fly.So much info was flying at me some times. It was amazing. So many things i will start practicing.

I now think i have another addiction. I can see so many different things i want to learn to tie.

This will be a great fill in when the ice isn't safe and the rivers are raging. again thanks,

and i'll see you next time

Another one lost to the dark side...

Your welcome, Eugene.


Not totally lost to the dark side. I just see a lot of ways i can alter these flies for use with a lite spinning rod.

I drag a couple of flyfishers to the cold but bright side. They start pulling me in to the dark side.

The force is strong with their numbers. must resist!!!!
