Welcome to the Tiers bench! This is the place, where all tutorials for tying fly patterns will be published. By presenting them stage by stage I want to encourage the beginners to start tying and help others to know which flies are useful at the Slovenian fly fishing districts. Due to the time consuming preparation of these tutorials I would like to ask you for your patience. All fly patterns, presented in the tiers bench will be discussed at the forum board, so you may ask me whatever you want or suggest some improvements or ideas to tie better flies. I wish you a strong threads! J
