For those of you that don't know, I've been in and out of fly tying no fewer than 6 times. The last time I sold all my tying stuff I told my wife that if I ever mentioned that I wanted to tie again to shoot me in the head with a .357 Mag. Well, she didn't shoot and I have re-acquired a bunch of stuff. This time, though, I'm actually enjoying it and I'm having some success! Go figure! I'm going to give a lot of credit to Hans Weilenmann as I've watched his videos again & again. I've been tying mostly soft hackles and wet flies...old style wet flies from a book put out by Patrick's Fly Shop back in the 60's. Now I'm thinking about stepping up my game a bit and getting a better vise. Thinking Regal pedestal. Can't wait to try some of the flies I've tied!
