Fly fishing on the brain

I have been trying to learn how to tie fly’s and let me tell you…it is tougher than it looks.  These few flies might not be the neatest looking but I definitely think I thill be able to hook a fish with them 🙂 

The above photo is a first attempt at a zebra midge,  the supplies that I am using I got in just a general kit.  Next time though I will by a little bit better quality of wire and line and see if that helps.

The three flies above were some of my very first flies I ever tied,  the top one is a wooly buggar but the tail is a bit too long,  then on the bottom I have a copper john on the left that didn’t turn out quite right and hen on the left I was attempting to make a midge of some sort and than this is what I was left with hahaha.   I can tell already this is going to be a bit of a pricey hobby!

Here’s another close up of that Wooly Buggar.  I was surprised that I was able to get the Hackle to go on right to be honest.

In a couple of weeks there is the Hunting and conservation expo in SLC, UT and I am really excited! I don’t have a lot of winter activities that get me outside and I am desperately ready for some outside time.  Typically in the winter Austin and I will do quite a bit of winter hiking or fly fishing but with the baby we worry that it will get too cold.  I bought her a snow suit(image below) and this weekend I think we are going to try and find a place that we can go hiking.

This season I would really love to get Momma’s together with our kids and go fly fishing and hiking with the kids and find a way to make it easier for us to get outdoors.  I am notorious for hiking alone or with Hazel and I feel like I need to make a point to get groups of us to go so that it’s a bit safer.

-Thanks for stopping by!
