About You / New to fly fishing and fly tying
« Last post by DV04 on July 31, 2015, 10:19:06 AM »
My first time posting.  I'm new to the sport, been conventional fishing for over 30yrs.  I have always been wanting to get into the sport of fly fishing and now I'm making it a point to.  I live in the RGV so I mostly fish Port Mansfield south to SPI.  I'm currently trying to absorb as much information as possible.  Hopefully I can contribute soon to the discussions.

Tying Chat / Chartreuse eyes
« Last post by Puck on July 31, 2015, 04:37:27 AM »
From Russell C.

I saw your video on swamp monster.  Chartreuse eyes are hard to find.  I make mine by spraying bead chain in the back yard.  I hang the beads from a coat hanger that is hanging on a tree limb.  I spray them with this Krylon (R) spray paint.  I get the Krylon (R) from Hobby Lobby (R) or Walmart (R).  The color for chartreuse is "Ivy Leaf Gloss".  I hang the beads from a coat hanger at one end with a twisty tie.  Then what I do is spray them.  It takes only 10 minutes to dry.  Once dried I go back and look to see if it needs respraying.  Again I wait 10 minutes, and if all looks good then I put the clear acrylic on it.  The clear acrylic coats the paint and the paint won't come off.  I will send you a picture of this.  After 10 minutes it will be dry as well.  The beads in the picture were originally black and I painted them a couple of times and they came out good.

Let's start signing up! I will let Drifters know we are coming and to set aside some cabins/cabanas/outhouses, but you will have to make your own reservations.

This is a great trip! Who doesn't love the coastal bend?  8)

Friends,

As it was pointed out last night, the 22nd of August is a conflict with our mini-expo, and the date for this outing is now changed to the 29th.

This means that we wait for a week before hitting the flats, but it also means that we can participate in the mini-expo.
