Before we get into this week’s fly tying tips, we wanted to take a moment to congratulate Greg Garcia on seven years here at Anglers All! We couldn’t have asked for a better manager or all-around great guy to work with.
We can’t say enough about Greg’s hard work and steady approach. On top of everything else he does around here, Greg has made Anglers All a hub for fly tyers here in the Denver metro area. If you’ve ever enjoyed our killer selection of tying materials, you can thank Greg.
In addition to his work here in the fly shop, Greg also continues to produce innovative fly patterns as an Umpqua signature designer. Greg has more new patterns appearing in the Umpqua catalog again this year!
If you see Greg here in the fly shop, please give him a pat on the back and let him know how much you appreciate him. We sure do!
We can’t think of a better way to celebrate Greg’s anniversary here at the fly shop, than by sharing some of his great fly tying tips! In a continuation from last week’s video on wrapping hackle on a parachute post, this time Greg shows us how he begins the post on a parachute fly.
Greg often points out the importance of tension on the thread when tying. Here, Greg demonstrates when to apply tension when building a parachute post, and why it’s so critical. Have a look:
