Alright, I know the title is bad grammar, but I’m quoting Tom Petty. That should count for something!
For a couple of years I’ve said I’m going to learn how to tie flies. I kept putting it off for one reason or another (I wouldn’t stop fishing long enough to try to learn) but the bug finally bit me (get it? bug? …).
Well, they’re not the prettiest ever tied. and I’m sure the experienced fly artists will have a good laugh when they view these, but I’m going to put myself out there anyway. Please be semi-kind!
Next week I will actually get to attend a fly tying session where good folks that enjoy the art just get together and tie. I can’t wait to see what I can learn from watching in person and talking to people who are already knowledgeable about materials and how they work in different flies.
