FlyTyingClips.com

Have you had the chance to check out this site?  Herman DeGala has created what I feel is the most unique website out there.  It offers a 360 degree view of flies.  Most patterns listed have recipes so you can gather materials to tie the flies shown.

I am honored to be part of this special site.  Getting listed on Herman's site is by invitation only and I was asked last year to provide some flies.  I quickly mailed some out and a few days later, they were up.  I appreciate the effort that Herman goes to, to provide us with this site.  Thanks Herman!

Listed below are 3 flies that I gave Herman last week when we ran into each other.  These came out of my box and although I wish I could have given him a lot more, I could only find 3 to give him.  The new iStone and the Colorado Caddis were two of the ones I gave him.  I don't claim the Colorado Caddis as mine as I stole it from Midgeman's blog but that pattern doesn't even resemble what I have found listed as the Colorado Caddis.    I put my own twist on it but have kept the same name.  I am sure it could qualify as a new fly but since I stole it......

Some of the world's best tiers have flies displayed on this site, originally tied by them.  It is a great reference site so go grab a warm or cold beverage and take a look here:


 "Tungsten Hot Shot"
"Tungsten Golden iStone"
 "Tungsten Colorado Caddis"

  9. Congrats Juan, I've been following Herman for awhile, he has some fantastic patterns on his site. He is also a great teacher, would love to see two of you in a tying demonstration together. If that ever happens spam that all over, I'd come from a long way to see that.
