That’s right I’ve got a new hobby. I’ve finally gotten into fly tying. I’ve wanted to do this for a lot of reasons. Mostly because it looked fun. I also thought it would be cheaper than buying flies. The little kit I put together for the picture set me back $200 bucks and I still don’t have enough materials to build all the flies I fish with. Who am I kidding, I don’t care if it’s less money or not. I love doing it. It’s a blast. Nothing else feeds your inner OCD like fly tying. I can’t wait for spring so I can start catching fish on a fly rod and flies that I built myself.
