IFTS 2007

The International Fly Tying Symposium was held on November 17th and 18th in Somerset, New Jersey. As usual, the place was wall-to-wall fly tyers, tying everything from giant saltwater streamers to trout flies. Streamers, salmon flies, you name it - someone was tying it.

Helge and Les,

the rubber sand eels are not difficult to tie, but pretty useless as the silicone starts to curl and the fly to spin. More an eye catcher than a practical fly.
