Classic Fly Pins For Christmas

I’ve been tying old classic fly patterns on decorative hook pins for Christmas. Here are a few of my favorites. The hat pin hooks are not easy to tie on. There is the difficulty of tying around the pin and it’s keeper. Number one is avoid the sharp point of the pin. Ouch! Almost any fly pattern can be tied on fly pin. I’m looking forward to trying a few new patterns this year!

Gold Brooch Fly Pins – Santa’s Little Helper

Santa’s Little Helper is fashioned from a  Christmas theme Atlantic salmon fly pattern I came up with several years past. Though it’s never caught a salmon that I know of  I’m certainly sure it could. The gold brooch fly pin copy certainly will not hook a salmon. It surely will fetch some glances and admiring comments when displayed on hat or coat.

River X Again


The water flow has dropped to low levels. Every year the flow seems to end up at about 150 CFS. Makes it a bit harder to catch fish in bright, sunny weather. Luckily rain and clouds are forecast for the rest of the week, and a good chance that the rain will be showers and light.
