Fly tying.

Even if the season is on I´m still tying flies now and then,especially when I get my hands on some new materials,like my latest acquisition called Body fibre.
It´s a syntethic material witch texture is somewhere between Slinky fibre and Mirror image.
I first felt that it was more difficult to tie because it is much softer then Slinky but after some training flies I managed to tie one decent fly and this one will be tested on Monday evening.

Also need to tie a new black Regret-fly,noticed that the lock and wire wasn´t the only part that broke with my 2.7kg:s pike,even the shank of the hook was bended.
It was a strong fish but to bend the shank of the hook(Fulling Mill)Unbelievable.
