How to tie a Freestyle Wet Fly

I have done it myself! Don't have the right materials for a certain fly so why bother? Well, you can still create a fly for catching fish by just using what you have to hand. I do not have an endless supply of fly tying materials I have built up a fairly comprehensive kit over the years. I have relied heavily of the kindness of others who have passed on old capes and I have made do. Its not always about having the most expensive materials, but what you do with the stuff you do have. This wet fly started life out as a Bumble that's what I had planned to tie but when I looked for the feathers I came up wanting. Instead of giving up I have concocted this fly, I think it may well work quite well.

Long story short

Support the Global FlyFisher through several different channels, including PayPal.

Long story longer

The Global FlyFisher has been online since the mid-90's and has been free to access for everybody since day one – and will stay free for as long as I run it.
But that doesn't mean that it's free to run.
It costs money to drive a large site like this.
