i try to tie everyday but sometimes boredom and life gets in the way
I tie flies every day for at least an hour. As a result, I have a million flies that I'll most likely never use. I find tying flies relaxes me so it's what I do after work and on weekends when I'm not fishing -- which during 2020 was not at all. .First the question...
How often do you tie, and for what length of time?
Something I have struggled with for years is tying consistently. I find myself tying every day for a week or two, than not having the motivation to tie for weeks if not months. I notice whenever I come back to the vice my skills are not quite as sharp as they were before and it takes me a few flies to get back up to speed.
For me, I don't really need another fishing fly. When i was younger i needed to refill the boxes after pulling flies off in the bushes. I also buy flies I visit that are the "hot pattern" of the month to support the local store.
So how often do you guys tie? And how long are your tying sessions?
