sexyloops fly tying focus - leaving ze house

t.z. | Friday, 6 January 2017

I finally jumped over my own shadow - and wallet - and invested a substantial amount in photo-gear. So far I worked with a minimalist setup ... big word - I used a small camera or later my iPhone for pretty much everything I did. I would say I got pretty far.

I had inspiration moment when I watched my daughter develop her photographic skills. That did build up my confidence that I would be able to make sense of more advanced gear myself.


 

Leaving ze house

or

Canon & GoPro

So I got myself a Canon EOS 70D, several lenses including a 100mm macro lense. Plus two Go-Pro Heros (a 4 and a 5).  The plan is to produce a fly tying video tutorial which works together with the articles of the www.tzflyfishing.no/flytyingschool . I also gained som basic knowledge to edit film with Adobe Premiere.  Anyway - there are a few things to look forward to in the beginning of 2017. I will try to be quick enough to have the movie ready in march so it can be launched at the Danish Fly Festival.

It is winter and it is dark ... which has it´s very own charm. I am tying flies at night .... and work on the above mentioned -- here´s a small nymph I find very interesting ... "leaving ze house" - small cased caddis larva peeping out of the little housings. The legs are made with a lagopus feather ... that lagopus which I "met" a few years back ... good I kept the bird.  

I hope you like the nymph ....

The sexyloops fly tying focus, hosted by t.z. 

The goal is to show the different approaches to fly tying around the globe 
(we believe in that the world is a globe actually)

... sharing and learning from each other - these are the key words.
Most of the tiers will are active on the sexyloops forum - "the board" - so join the very open
and friendly club of flyfishers here on s-loops.
