Wonder Wasp Fly

Wonder Wasp

The Hungarian Flyfishers Association (MÜHOSZ) use to organize on the end of the year a flyswap action. Quasi regularly.
This year a wasp-pattern should be tied.
The presented pattern was very effective for me this year for chub.
At the beginning I had problems with the floating ability. 
If an extended body is made of polycelon, the fly dives on its nose, takes are more ineffective, the fly swims, but not naturally.

Tied several variations to improve this pattern, here is the result:

Lightning Flies

Lightning Bug
Fly fishing in medium deep flows usually isn't a big problem, using nymphing techniques and proper wading equipment.  Problems may occur during the dusk, in the evening, or in the early morning. I tried to tye some lightning (flourescent) flies for these situations, increasing the visibility of the nymphs or the streamers.
I beg to remark that these flies are self lightning and NOT shining, they have their own light, after a flash illumination.
Used materials and some samples will be presented.

Tinned Flyswaps

It may occur that some pretty or memorable flies will never be fished. Exhibition series, gifts, memorable trophy-catchers, flyswaps series or whatever flies can be stored in fly boxes or we may store them exposed hanged onto a wall like ornaments.

The variant which can be hanged onto the wall should be made from a wide-framed, glazed picture frame, which can be obtained ready from the trade. 

See some pictures, which could be more understandable.

Reincarnation of a Walnut Tree

A few years ago, a wind-storm plunged the neighbour's walnut tree into my yard.
I got the trunk of this huge tree as compensation.

I cut out a lot of three centimetre thick boards of this.

Camera Holder

If we would like to take flytying pictures, snapshots or movies from a fixed position, facilitates the subsequent works very much, if the camera is fixed firmly in place raporting to the fly (or to the vise).

A camera holder was made ready based on Mr. Paskay’s (MCI) idea and can be fixed to the vertical rack pole of the vise.

Basic Flytying Travel Kit

A recycled manicure set's vallet
Many people believes, that for tying efficient flies we need only some basic materials. This is so presumably, but one of the most interesting occupations of the flyfishing - according to me – is flytying, what is distinguished hobby on wintertime and the case of very grim weather as well.

If we leave to lead to angle somewhere it’s recommended to carry with ourselves a basic fly tying kit, which everybody compiles according to his own idea.
