t.z.´s friday - bellyboating

t.z. | Friday, 16 June 2017

I had a fantastic day on the lake. Somehow I want to come back to discussing the patience bit ... I think there is a certain amount involved, period ... read the logfile and enjoy the pictures.

It´s not about the fish caught ... not for me anyway. The northern nights fascinate me most. Sitting by a small fire with a coffee pot on. The evening visits of bugs - E.Vulagata this time. They were hatching all day. It´s a humbling sight to see mayflies dance. Very poetic.

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.  http://www.sexyloops.co.uk/theboard

Thomas Züllich, or - “t.z.” as most call him - is a German flyfisher & flytier living in Norway. He runs a small fly shop together with his fiance Konstanse.
