I am stating this thread up with Fall and Winter on the way and will post patterns and flies here that we can share. Anyone have requests are welcome as well.
Fly Tying / Patterns
Dave, thanks for the info. Will have to try making a couple up.
What are you using for the head?
Hope someone can help...sorry if off topic...
This is a long shot but last weekend 6/6/20 I lost my nice oakley sunglasses (I think in one of the parking lots along the Mecan river). They have my last name etched onto the lenses! PM if found.
Pwr. You need : A vise. A bobbin. Thread. Small scissors. White, black,blue,red,yellow buck tail. long shank hooks . Glue. CARPIO BPS has fly tying classes. Free!
I enjoy getting out the flyrod every spring on our Canada Trip and catch plenty of walleyes while targeting smallies.. Most minnow patterns work as well as crayfish patterns.. But then again, it's Canada, and they will bite on a cigarette butt on a hook!..... Your milage may vary...
I'd recommend tying things that look like what people throw for walleye jigs.
Occasionally I pick up a walleye on woolly buggers or anything I'm using for bass.
I have zero fly tying equipment and have never tied a fly before. My main interest would be to tie walleye flies for the wolf river. Do you guys have any suggestions on equipment that would be good for a beginner to buy that would allow me to tie walleye fly rigs? Thanks much
Very nice arcus..
