Not being much of a dry fly fisherman, I never tied any dry flies until recently.  I figured I'd learn the classics first, so I tied 16 flies to get a small fleet of dries ready for season(only photographed the better looking ones).  I figure the ones that fish well will get more tied and add different patterns and so forth.  These ones are suppesed to be:  Adams, Royal Coachman, BiVisible, quill body and two versions of a brown spider.


Please note again that this is my first serious run at tying dry flies.  I probably wont tie anymore unless needed mid season or next fall.  I'm now headed back into improving my skills at wet flies.  Although, I may tie a couple March Browns to add to the box.


Thank you for looking,

Nice ties though the lighting could be a little better.

Thank you.  The drawing I have in the book "Trout" shows tippet tails.  I will have to agree that my photography skills are not the best.  Although like tying flies, I'm sure it'll improve with time.
