As we all see things through different eyes, I have asked a group of other fly tying enthusiasts to join me in this project to build a collection of ideas and patterns for all to share.





Guest Australian Fly Tyers:

Ashley ArtisIs somewhat of a perfectionist, as you will see in the way he ties his flies, they are a great example of a fly tyer's skill.
