Fly tying

May 8, 2016 | Flies, Inspiration, Nature | 0 comments

Have been fly tying as an experiment to add to a project I am doing with a friend. This is to do with the swallows. They are very tricky but do get easier with practice, as all things do I suppose. I think they are so lovely. Mine are really a beginners attempt, but as I am not trying to catch fish not sure it matters. I love the materials and tools and the precision required and at the end of the day they so tiny and pretty.
