Fly Tying Tip #112

Less is more.  When you are tying a group of the same fly, be conscious of the quantity and proportion of materials you use.  I find myself using too much of some ingredients at times.  Trout and Salmon have eyes that act as magnifying glasses.  They see great details up close and less from a distance.  This is why a fish will accelerate on a presentation and only at the last moment jam on the brakes.  Think sparse because the fish see far more than we might think.
