My first flies - I honestly don't remember exactly how many years ago I started tying flies, but a rough calculation says about 30 years. A lot has happened since then - luckily! - Global FlyFisher


This is most likely one of the very first flies I ever tied. I have really tried to groom it, but honestly: the hackle is a mess and all too long, there's tying thread on the outside of the body and the head is varnished with silver flake nail varnish. Yuck!
