    Yea I tie, it's fun, relaxing and nothing better than catching something on a fly you tied yourself.
    Good whiskey on the side isn't bad either, told my missus it's like a tradition. eish

    Thanks Skaaphaas, it's really a hobby in itself, and can be quite engrossing if time permits. A friend of mine, Gordon, is a wizard at the vice. I'll show you one of his salmon flies, now that's a real art form.

    I also do a bit of fly tying but havent been on the vice or water in 2 years. I mostly tied wet mayfly and caddis imitations for nymphing with a few bulky bass flies. Also did a few tiger streamers for a trip to Pongola once. Defenitly not an expert but I can help myself on the vice not too badly

    Gordon is a genius fly-tyer!!! And a great teacher as well. Helped my son refine his fly tying. Check out uncharted flyfishing on youtube.

    Cz, you're spot on,the one and only. What a nice guy, brilliant tyer and instructor, and so generous with his time and knowledge. Talking of which, he's recently released a new tying dvd, I must contact him to order a copy.

    Yes he is, met him once at Urban Flyfishers.
