First post

My Blog.. it's out there in the open... never really had the time to do so.. but i guess you just have to start at a given moment. Feel free to hop on board!

First post: The Fat Bastard Woolhead.
I once read a forum/topic discussion.. they discussed about the possibilities regarding deer hair patterns like spots stripes etc.
Those patterns that can be made with deer hair couldn't be done with natural or synthetic wools.
personally i always try to see which things can be done with it whether than can't be done with it.
This head is built up from tightly packed synthetic wool layers.
I have try to use the same principle here as some deer hair specialist would/could do on fly tying symposium's.

Well I gave it a shot anyway..







It's take time for me to get used to this blogger posting.. so please be patience with me everyone.

Hello Raymond, that’s some way to start a blog. Those flies are absolutely amazing! I will add you to my blog list immediately, and I’m already looking forward to new posts!

And what a warm welcome.. thanks guys, very much appreciated.

James, it's a custom built fly tying station which still can be adjusted for personal preferences.
I'll soon see if I can make some more pictures of it.

Thanks again and best regards,


Raymond.
