Referring to the pic of the 8 flies, the only ones that I can make reference to immediately are the top ones on the right side. They were constructed using Lefty Kreh's pattern. I will post some individual pics and instructions of some of my stuff later. The best thing for me about this program is that up to this point, I have never recorded any written procedures as to how or what I use while tying flies. I just put a hook in the vise and see where it takes me. I usually use a variety of colors of materials and different eyes. Where possible, when I post my instructions, I will try to list fly shop equivalent for materials. For what its worth, I will now record some procedures. As for my materials, they are mostly scrounged. I know how to use epoxy for heads but seldom use it anymore. I use hot glue to construct heads, attach eyes or a mixture of hot glue and play sand for weight and colors. Hot glue gun?-- for my part-- forget it--I only could get burned fingers, messed up flies and living room carpet. Later, I will show you the method I use for applying hot glue. Its not as durable as epoxy--how many toothy fish do you expect on one fly.
I still consider myself an amateur at this and have much to learn.

I feel this is going to be a good program and hope we get a load of participants.

Later, Forrest

WHOOPS! On the skirted clouser I posted the same pic for photo 2 and 3- only difference was what 2 was supposed to look like before skirt was started. Also, I'm not detailing the tying of the layers, whip finishing, or trimming as it it generally basic and instructions usually come with starter kits.
