Tying your own fly fishing flies is an addicting hobby.
Whether you have some spare time during the summer, or can only daydream about fly fishing in winter, fly tying is a great pastime. It allows you to customize your own flies for the type of fishing you really enjoy, and the types of streams you mostly fish.
This infographic from Fix teaches us how to tie two great trout flies: the wooly bugger and the elk hair caddis. After learning these two flies, you’ll have the skills to move on to more complicated fly patterns.
It really doesn’t require all that many tools or materials either.
Enjoy your new obsession, errr…hobby!
