Fly Tyin' Times - Flies At Work

Always good to hear when someone has spent their hard earned dollars on the fruits of your labor at the fly tying vise, that fruition comes from their efforts.  I thought I would share a couple of quick pictures today of my flies with all my blog readers that have been passed on to me by their users.  

Red Tag Soft Hackles and Krystal Beetles ready to go to work in Florida!  Happy hooks up,  Mike.


Iowa fly fisher, Steve Doty, has been at work on his local pond with more flies from Fly Tyin' Times....

 Nice Bluegill, Steve!  Great to see that my "Go Getter" works back that way also......

This is my Grandson, Kaleb Owens! While he wasn't fly fishing, he has been stalkin' the local ponds and getting his fair share of Bass.  What did he use? "Grandpa, I used Rooster Tails".

I am a little further behind on the fishing than I usually am as I have been homebound pretty much helping my wife through recovery of some fairly serious surgery.  So my time has been spent tying flies.........................

  1. Hey Mel, I happy to see the Facebook page doing so well. Forgive me for not stopping by often enough but...well you know how time flies. Speaking of flies I may have to order some up since I also haven't had time to tie in quite a while.

    1. Howard, thanks for visiting the blog and leaving a comment as always.......
      The Facebook Page is doing wonderful! I have to admit I have been surprised with the response. Just hope I can keep the energy level up. If I can help in any way with flies or other suggestions just let me know. Sitting here at home with my wife, I have nothing but time!

    1. Thanks, Alan, I appreciate your thoughts. You know my flies are designed to be simple and effective. Nice to see a few buying into that concept.
      Fly Tying is another love developed from my life long pursuit of fish on a fly rod.

    1. Good Morning, Bill! Yes, my grandson, has been quite active on the ponds when he is off work or on the weekends. I guess I don't need to tell you about Rooster Tails.........
      Things are looking up for the wife, so, hopefully my time on the water will be fairly soon.

    1. Good Morning, Mark! Amen, to all that you said and thanks for thinking of us. My better half is doing better, but, it has been a long arduous battle. I will let her know that you checked in..........

    1. Thank you, Ralph! Sure appreciate your love and support of Fly Tyin' Times. It has been keeping me busy, even though, my time on the water has been almost non-existent. That is a good thing!
