So I've taken the plunge and invested in a fly tying set up. Last night I've got all my new stuff spread across the couch, spilling on to the living room floor, as I explain to my wife what everything is. She's silent, taking it all in, then hits me with the question I've been dreading: "How much did all this cost?" Some nervous squirming on my behalf and I come clean, "about $200." "And how much does a fly cost?" More squirming, plus some fidgeting and incoherent mumbling before I answer, "$1.85." Silence. Then from her, thankfully, laughter! Laughter bordering on hysterics. Maybe she has a point but she definitely has a since of humor!
