The spring scissors I particularly like so much so I bought 2 pairs as they are ideal for Fly Tying too.
Its been a week of mixed emotions with a few furled leaders almost complete only to loose it at the very end when tying the shorb loops, or a few threads to snap especially in the making of the indicator ones but as I said last week practise makes perfect and today I got Steven to sign off on 6 furled leaders I have made & presented as graduation ones.
2 normal green furled leaders for dry fly fishing, 2 red and yellow leaders to be used as indicators when fishing nymphs and finally 2 green with red tips for fishing wet fly / nymphs.
I have to say Im pretty chuffed with them and all made by my very own hands will make it even more satisfying when I use them to catch fish with.
The triangle is complete of handmade items for fishing with.
Dont worry I wont be changing from The Flee & Float to incorporate the furled leaders I just wanted to learn another craft associated with fishing. Its been an absolute pleasure and honour learning this craft from Steven and I would like to publically thank him via the way of the blog for teaching me another craft.
This week I also took delivery of this season's
T-shirts which I like to wear whilst out & about with my fishing adventures, with the small logo on the front & larger on the back.
Thanks again to Barrie & Karen at BFGraphics
who continue to do me proud.
A graphic which caught my wife's eye some months ago whilst surfing the net, was also made into a T-shirt and once again Karen worked her magic.
