kjackson Posted November 27, 2022 Share Posted November 27, 2022 Given that my wife and I are still recovering from whatever virus is floating around, I'm pretty much bored and trying to think of something...and one of those things is advancing my tying skills and patterns. Yeah, I should be working on a very long list of household, garden and yard tasks, but those things take up nap time. One of the tying things I'm contemplating is incorporating some kind of lip in diving flies. One thing I've run across is the use of seashell sequins. Another suggestion was to modify fake fingernails. I realize that there are Fly Lipps available, but part of the fun of tying, for me anyway, is to find better or at least different ways of doing things. Soooo-- has anyone used the seashell sequins or fake fingernails to make a usable lip to provide extra motion? Any other suggestions? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
