Tying With Friends and Family

Lake run fishing has been exceptional lately and I've been fishing more then tying.  The weather is quickly turning however, so I've found a little more time at the vise.  Recently I've found inspiration and motivation from tying with my daughter, and a couple of my fishing friends.  It has gotten to the point that I needed to build an addition on my desk!  

My daughter has been tying around twice a week for a little over a half hour each session.  She has been tying her typical 'streamers' which consist of anything and everything that looks interesting.  Her technique has developed though, and I believe any day now she will start tying actual patterns.  

Lately I've been tying marabou spey flies, in hopes of intriguing the local post spawn lake run browns.  

Remember this off season to invite your family and friends to join you at the vise and tie a few flies!

I love the shot of your fly tying area. My son loves the fishing never thought about having him take a crack at the vise. Hmmm...!

Blake, get him to the vise! My kids have all tied, even as young as 2 years old. They all love it! I just need to get more time for me and them at the vise! I might find time tonight since I'm fishing in land tomorrow.

Nice addition to the desk Luke!

It's great to get the kids involved. Now you need to share when your daughter hooks one on her princess bugger
