    That any time you walk into a fly shop for just "some hooks" or "some dubbing" you leave with $40 spent

    that tying is cheaper than buying flies -- why I'll have reached the break even point after only another 100,000 or so . . . provided I don't buy any more materials

    Merry Christmas, Happy new year

    ... the hooks you need is the package that's empty?

    ... you still believe the store bought fly will fish better than your own.

    ...that the hours of wrapping presents is undone in mere minutes?
    ...when the one gift you got is more than you wished for?

    that the more beat up a fly gets the more fish it catches...

    how excited and interested someone who doesn't tie flies gets when they find out that you do and its just all second nature to us tyers...

    how pissed off guys get after they pounded an area and came up with bubkiss and you step in after they move and hook up on your first cast...

    how many guys tell you how good they are at fly fishing and when they get on the water with you for the first time they have all kinds of excuses why that can't cast well, mend well, etc...

    that feeling you get when you hook your first fish of the season after a long lay off...

    how deadly a Klinkhammer is on trout!!!...

    iagree Except the season part. Fly-fishing is year-round.
