t.z. | Friday, 20 May 2016

I`m on tour in Sweden or somewhere ... lot´s a sheepgirls and maybe even fish. So here is an overview of what has happened in the last several month on the SFTS - the sexyloops fly tying school.

Would be nice if you share your flies and stories on the board.

Chapter 1 to 30 ...

Intro and first fly:

and than ... - after having tied at least three dozen black gnats -  than move on to the other chapters

keep praticing the flies above while you read these :

and than continue with the next section

splitting thread (not hair)

and a much easier, but very efficient pattern

if you need a fly to impress the other fishermen go for these

Leif Örtenholm and his realistic stonefly nymph

the emerger section

extended body flies


tying technique - using your fingertips

Tying with Deer Hair

Gunnar Bingen Interview and his "dyret"

Hans Weilenmann interview and his CDC & Elk

Thoughts and inspiration

Another really good way of learning fly tying is to take macro pictures. A smart phone or small digital camera is sufficient. Than upload the pics to the sexyloops forum and discuss them with others.

His flydressing is based on old traditions as well as very modern and innovative methods of creating flies. You can book Thomas for guided trips, flytying classes and presentations. He regularly gives speeches and demonstrations at fly fishing fairs. Thomas is member of the ProTeam at Partridge of Redditch as well as Regal Vises.
