First full dress Stimi, but without the wire counter wrap (because I forgot). 🤷‍♂️#whatareyagonnado Still working on wrapping that perfect hackle but getting there.

So I started my IG simply because I wanted a source of inspiration when I started fly fishing a couple of years ago. One of the first accounts I followed was @ammo_flies I was absolutely mesmerized by his flies. Bird flies, cicadas, Dahlberg divers, and most of all.....his Game Changers. When I started tying, I tried a GC about a month in. I immediately abandoned them, I obviously didn’t have the skills to tie them at that point. Over the last year or so, I wanted to try them again. Chris was more than helpful with tips and tricks. I ended up asking Chris to tie a few flies for me. The Rainbow GC you see here and a diver. These things are absolutely RIDICULOUS. Pictures do not do these justice. Although I tie flies myself, I still buy some from tyers that inspire me, that drive me to keep practicing the craft and I don’t mind supporting them because I appreciate the skill and time it takes to tie their respective flies.....including shipping these from Australia. 🇦🇺 😬 These are pieces of functional art at the highest level. Thanks for everything Chris! 🙏🙏🔥 Follow @ammo_flies to see the diver and the rest of his work. 👊 • • • #ammoflies #beastbrushes #gamechangerfly #gamechanger #flyfishing #flytying #flytyingjunkie #flyfishingjunkie #flyfishingnation #streamerjunkie #articulationnation #bassfly #bassonthefly #rainbowtrout #troutfly #predatorflyfishing
Had it.... Tied it... 🤷‍♂️ Trying two new things at once. New camera and new flies. Figured the @whitingfarms Kingfisher Blue High & Dry hackle could add some color to the feed and I could use the practice on dries. Shout out to @demuth_flyfishing for the tie / photography inspiration and tips. If you aren’t following them, go ahead and do that now. 👊🎣 • • • #dryfly #dryflyfishing #practicemakesperfect #yesiseesometrappedfibers #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flytyingjunkie #flytyingaddict #trout #troutflies #fireholeoutdoors #fishing #troutonthefly #flyfishfood #flugbindning #flugfiske #ericstackleshop #pescamosca #pescaconmosca #macro #canon #flyfishingphotography #flyfishingnation
Same bug, different flavor. A play on @tim_sickles Iced Mocha concept. Was out of town a few days, but my Ice Blue pearl tinsel showed up, and I couldn’t wait to try it. This dry fly stuff is pretty fun! 🎣 #ineedahacklegauge • • @fireholeoutdoors 316 size 16 UTC Ice Blue Pearl Tinsel UTC 70 in Brown underbody @harelinedubbin Pearl Krystal Flash @harelinedubbin Super Fine Dubbing in Brown @whitingfarms Dark Barred Ginger • • #reapermidge #icedmocha #dryfly #dryflyfishing #gettingbetter #practicemakesperfect #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flytyingjunkie #midge #flytyingaddict #trout #troutflies #fireholeoutdoors #fishing #troutonthefly #flyfishfood #flugbindning #flugfiske #ericstackleshop #pescamosca #pescaconmosca #macro #flyfishingnation
Had to change it up a bit...tried some dries again, after giving them a shot when I first started tying two or so years ago. Not such a disaster this time. 😅 I need a lot of practice, but these were fun to tie. 🎣 • Reaper Midge pattern from @theflyfiend @fireholeoutdoors 316 sizes 16-20 @hedronflashabou Pearl Flashabou @harelinedubbin Pearl Krystal Flash @whitingfarms Herbert Miner Pale Dun UTC 70 Purple underbody 👾 • • #thismaybeaddicting #noideawhatimdoing #leftalittletoomuchroomupfront #reapermidge #macrolensesarescary #dryfly #dryflyfishing #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flytyingjunkie #midge #flytyingaddict #trout #troutflies #fireholeoutdoors #fishing #troutonthefly #flyfishfood #flugbindning #flugfiske #ericstackleshop #pescamosca #pescaconmosca #macro #flyfishingnation
Just some @lanceeganflyfishing Frenchies tonight, colorway inspired by @sosfly Higa’s SOS. Really like the way the black PT shows off some iridescent green highlights.

Dunnigan’s Spring Chicken Perdigon • This was one of the flies that came back as a suggestion for my Euro box project. Looks like a winner to me! Thanks Casey! If you don’t tie, buy some from Casey over at @flysnties_fly_company. He ties some killer bugs! 🙌 • • @fireholeoutdoors 516’s size 12-18 @tactical_flyfisher Tungsten 3.8-2.3 @whitingfarms CDL Med Pardo UTC Purple 70 Denier @veevus.dk Fluorescent Orange • • #springchicken #perdigon #flyfishing #flytying #flyfishingjunkie #flytyingjunkie #flytyingaddict #nymphs #euronymphing #trout #troutflies #nymphing #fireholeoutdoors #euronymph #fishing #troutonthefly #flyfishfood #flugbindning #flugfiske #ericstackleshop #pescamosca #pescaconmosca #macro #flyfishingnation
