For those interested in fly fishing in VRS, a 3D fly creation tool is now available. You can download it with this link:http://www.pishtech.com/pvrs_fly_tying.zip
Just unzip it into the folder where you have VR Sportfishing installed and then run flytying.exe to start it. For the most part it's self-explanatory, but here's a tip: Whenever you can select something with the page up/down keys (existing fly pattern, fly component or fly category) you can also use the mouse wheel to go through the options more quickly. You can add, change and delete components with the buttons or keys (the keys are shown on the buttons) and select a texture for the current component by clicking on the texture image. You can save flies and they'll show up in the fly_patterns.txt file in the main folder, which you can also edit manually. Right now there are 50 components and almost 100 textures. That doesn't give it the pieces to create everything, certainly not patterns that use unique matterials or shaping, but it should allow for creating the majority of the most popular flies.
Please let me know how it works for you, and please share some screen shots of your creations along with the recipies (you can copy the text for your saved patterns from the fly_patterns.txt file). I'd love to collect a bunch of fly patterns to include in the game.
