There are two types of fly tyers, in my opinion. There are guys like Big E who turn out artwork that catch fish, from the bench every time and then there are other guys like me who are hacks. I'm admittedly attention deficite. I can usually tie one or two flies at a sitting and I get restless. During those one or two ties, I make a lot of mistakes. My flies are not pretty so I don't post pics of them but they do fish and that's my only salvation in tying. If I'm going on a trip, I have to start months in advance to have enough flies. I'm already working on my flies for a late June trip to Mexico. Yes, it takes me that long.
