Hi All,

I would like to start this thread in hopes of sparking some winter projects.  I have not tied in a long time or made plugs for that matter in a long time.    I would like to see what others are tying or creating in hopes of creating new and exciting patterns.

As I finish a project I will post it here in hopes of gaining some creative criticism as well as helping others out that have not ventured into the realm of creating your own rigs.

This easy and exciting aspect of the fishing hobby can be very rewarding and just knowing that you made something that fooled another creature into a reaction that only nature can is worth the small initial expense.

I am slowly getting my tools back in order after a long hiatus away from something I loved. 

I hope you will join me in making this winter a fun and productive time,. I hate sitting around reading what others are doing. Besides I need to fill my tackle box back up and I hate going out and buying commercial made things when I know I can do myself.

I am looking forward to seeing what others are doing so please join me in making this thread a success.

Happy Catching

Paul

Hey Paul,

I have been tying flies whenever I get a chance for trout season in the spring.  I have my own patterns that I have been doing very well with over the years and I am working on some new ones that orvis hasn't called their own yet.  I went a little crazy during fluke season with some of my own custom fluke rigs (ask hotrod about his Grin).  Teasers are so easy to tie and so expensive to buy in the store.  With a gamakatsu hook they cost me 20 cents to make, add a 3oz ball for another 45 cents and bam!!  you got an identical ball jig to what you see in the store that costs 4 bucks, or add a spro looking weight for 60 cents.  You won't be as ticked off when you get snagged on the bottom.  So those are my projects, trout flies and crazy teasers for fluke.

Boy you guys sound like your on the right track.  I posted a couple of teasers I tied in the 'From The Suds' thread but here they are again.  Let me know what yo9u thing.

I first tie them with using only head cement and if the pattern looks and works well I then use a 5 min epoxy to finalize them.

I will be tying a bunch over the winter I am going to try a jigs like SPRO in pink and white to use for Weakies next year.  It should work well with a pink Fin-S curly tail or something.

These teasers are about 4 1/2 " long.  I tied a few more about 5" long and they look better.  I am using a circle hook to see hwo they respond I'll let you know.

Happy Catching

Paul

very nice Paul, I use epoxy on all my saltwater flies as well.  The eyes look great on the teasers, but if you want to save some bucks, go with the plain hourglass beads. 

If you know any hunters, tell them to save the tails for your teasers.  I'm going to try and dye some this year.  I going to experiment with some this winter.  Saltwater can punish what you tie, hopefully I can find a durable dye to use.

I had a friend drop off 18 bucktails today.  I pour Spro jigs with a Do-it mold.  I put a base coat of white on the jig and turn it over to another friend (along with the bucktails).  He ties the bucktail onto the jig and paints them different colors.  He also dyes the bucktails different colors.

We then share the finished products.   thumbsup2

Sounds like you got the best of both worlds Joe.  Why not throw up a couple of pictures of the work so we can see different styles of tying.

I am always interested in trying new patterns.

Hi All.

did not get out yet today waiting for a call that did not come yet.

Tied these teasers though.  I noticed the other day that the sand eels were very light in color with an iridescent red and silver glow to them so here is a pattern I tied to mimic them.

First is dry second is wet.

The first teaser is on a 2/0 long shank hook the second is in a 1/0 red Gami octopus hook.

Happy Catching

Paul

Me too,  especially after this blow this weekend.

My wife and daughter had a surprise B-Day party for me at the Lobster Shanty in Toms River this past Sat.  What a blast. 

Now I have to look for something else to do.  I have a number pf projects but it is so hard to get started with them.

Thanks Joe,

Yeah well when I was young I had very few parties so when I got older and married my parties shifted earlier for obvious reasons.

Yeah Paul,
I know a couple of people who were born on Christman Eve or Day.  They would always get one gift with a 'Merry Christman AND Happy Birthday' wish.  Seemed to me that they got cheated every year out of a gift.

Nice of your family to do that for you.   thumbs up
