Pizza and Fly tying
« on: March 19, 2014, 06:17:08 AM »
6 of us sat around the table and tied the Seaducer.  (Marcos E.  Michael M.  John P.  Michael Q.  George S.  Puck)

A few of our guys had other obligations, and were missed, but talked about   :)

Pizza, beer, and wine were provided by MM, JP, and GS.

Nilo made baklava and dolma for us.

This was a "Stevie leading Ray" adventure, until Marcos showed us some of the details, materials, ect. to consider.  His seaducers are works of art compaired to my SCE version.

As part of the discussion we talked about moving the location.  I'll call Wes and see if either the 1st or 15th of April is available for our next get together.  We may not be able to have the libations at the next location, but I'm certain we can have food.

Surf candies, and smack candies are the next flies to tie.

To fish, or not to fish?  What a stupid question!

Good stuff guys - learned a lot last night. While the Seaducer is a pretty simple fly to ie, the lesson is all about feathers. Capes vs saddles vs strung hackle, etc. Selecting feathers of size, comparing to hook gap, etc. feather "structure," i.e. webbed or not, and where and why either makes sense. Weed guards, and how to tie them (remember - not too tight to the hook).

A lot more than meets the eye in tying the simple seaducer...

Thanks for the lesson and the hospitality!

Is that a strike indicator or a bobber?
