I actually tied my 1st fly!
Yeah I know you guys have tied hundreds & thousands so it's not a big deal to most folks, but it's a big deal to me!
I,ve been picking up supplies, bought a better vice (had a couple of the $10. ones folks had given me, but I bought a Dan Vise), watched a hundred videos on you tube & a few DVDs I bought, but I never seemed to just sit down & tie a fly. Fear of doing it wrong? Did I just like the idea of tying but didn't really want to do it bad enough to make time? I don't know ???
Anyway, 8:15 last night out came the stuff & I tied my 1st woolly bugger, an olive on a #6 hook. It was just one then I had to clean up & head for bed (5am get up). It ain't perfect, but it should fish. If I knew how I'd post a pic for your critique.
Any how, had to tell someone who would understand.
Hopefully the next week or two will include lots of practice as I get ready for spring!
