    He spent over 1200 hours on that thing. I bet he could have learned and cranked out more than a few dozen gorgeous Atlantic salmon flies in that time.

    Wow!! What would make a guy even think of doing something like that? That was fun to watch...I wonder if his first one was a four cylinder?

    Thanks Kelvin for bringing me into this, just kidding. I think I'll put 1200 hours in my next fly, take it out and fish it.. and loose it in the trees on the first cast.
