A cluster of creations from Fabrizio!

Fabrizio kindly agreed to send me some flies build with Bug-Bond to photograph... his flies like many tied by the top fly tyers look great in photographs but when you have them in the palm of your hand... they are simply stunning. These flies may feature in Bug-Bond adverts over the next little while but I thought I would just share the group with you...

"Phrom the Bunker of the Phly Welder"

In a land where the letter F is replaced by its phonetic friend Ph (why else is phonetic spelt the way it is!) I have to include two links which give access to a compendium of Phly Welding put together by Pete Gray on the forums of Sexyloops and Globalflyfisher. Love it or hate it Pete has started something... maybe the guys who sell thread and make bobbin holders may want to call him a heretic... but surely this is merely an extension of innovation which all fly tyers hold dear (sorry Phly Tyer)... perhaps Pete should be inducted into the Phly Tying Hall of Phame!

Someone out there should give him a book deal, as well as invites to international fly fairs and perhaps even an invite or two for after dinner speaking!

As ever Pete thanks for sharing...

Fish heads Gaja style...

Fabrizio Gajardoni has been making his fish heads in epoxy since 2005... he has now turned his attention to making them with Bug-Bond... he says "I tie saltwater flies with my Gaja's Fish Head since 2005, now with Bug-Bond is so fast do this head......."

I think you'll agree that these are stunning little works of art!
