I don't know how to begin to describe how much fun I had this past weekend at the New Jersey fly tying symposium! I met some awesome new friends and got to see some old friends as well. Some world class tying going on. I know I'm not going to remember everyone but if you're not familiar with some of these names google them or go to their web sites and check out some great patterns.. Mike Schmidt was tying some awesome sculpins, Steve Silverri always has some fantastic salt water streamers some you can learn to tie by finding him on you tube, Pat Cohen was spinning up mind blowing deer hair patterns, Rich Murphy was showing everyone the million and one uses for one of my favorite materials, E-Z Body! I was able to learn some sweet tube techniques from some of my new friends from Sweden. Last but not least I was able to sit in on a buck tail seminar with Bob Popovics, to say I learned alot there is an understatement! Keep an eye out for some future posts of some buck tail creations I will be posting!
