Paul Rossman's - Blue Kenya - Variation

10 February 2018 - 11:40 PM

I made it to page 11 in Rare and Unusual II and came across this fly by Paul Rossman and it caught my eye for a couple reasons.
First it's a killer looking pattern and second, I work with a girl named Kenya and thought I'd tie it for her.
This is my take on Paul's fly with a couple variations.
I tied it on a Gaelic Supreme (Lee Schechter's Kinky Straight Shaft) size 8.

Interesting idea for portable fly tying table

08 February 2018 - 06:52 PM

I'm working from my house more and more and when the family isn't home, I like to get out of my home office and work in the family room so I started looking for a better option than a TV tray and found this on Amazon for $35.00 US.


I think it could also make a nice portable fly tying table as well and thought I'd share the link with you all.




I do most of my tying in the family room these days as I enjoy being around my family.  I bring materials from my main tying area in my basement, upstairs as I use them.


Again, for the price I thought this looked interesting and thought I'd share.



First Freestyle of 2018

I have no idea what I've done here, but I thought I'd share.


I wanted to use some metallic thread I picked up and figured it would be a great time to try another one of Ronn's colored hooks.


Custom hook from Ronn and custom dyed feathers from John, what more could you ask for?


Interesting how the top of the tippet shows through the kingfisher blue part of the wing.  I thought it was coming through but it is just the top showing through.


Happy New Year!

362 days until Christmas and people already have their lights up, it's getting out of control.
