Tonight after a long day at work I pulled up a chair to the vise and planned to work out a new pattern. The pattern is the damsel fly. This fly is used in warm water situations and is a big carp and bass fly. I have been trying to catch a carp for a couple weeks now and just want to pad my chances with a fly that is said to work. After tying three flies that are all slightly different from each other and a bunch that were no good I packed up my tying stuff to call it a night. I will be field testing these new flies this weekend sometime and I hope they do the trick. Here are a couple shots of them, I'm not confident in the pattern yet so they look a little rough. Rough flies tends to happen when you tie a fly for the first time.
Like I said not the prettiest fly I have ever tied but look at that I am getting better at taking pictures of the finished product. There will be more to come maybe another post before Sunday this time.
