Fly Libraries

#1 Post by butts » Tue Jul 10, 2012 5:09 am

Gday All

If you like to flick the fur or the feather with your long wand and don't mind getting down to the finer art of tying your flies and you would like to share them with everyone else. All you have to do is take a photo or two with a few instructions (mainly fly ingrediants) and we will include them in the Fresh and Salt water fly sections.

They certainly are Chris.
We did open them up years ago for this purpose but I became very lazy and didn't update them.

So now that I have given myself an uppercut we will hopefully have them filled with all of our members creations.

And I couldn't agree more we have some very talented tyers here on KFDU.

Good to see Steve.

The more the merrier.

Brez I really think you need to get into the tying side of this sport. Give me a yell and you can use my gear (I'll get you started)
