Fly Tying Experience Poll
It would be interesting to know the combined years of fly tying experience amongst us and how popular the practice has been in recent times.
Thanks in advance for contributing. – JF

I would fall somewhere in the 1-2 year range. Not sure exactly.

Have lost track but getting close to 20 years now.

Pushing 30 years. You'd think I'd be better by now.

1-3 I am learning mostly from you tube. In south florida I can not find any class's for freshwater/trout fly's. I've been offered private lesson but the cost is prohibitive. So I always look forward to all the the great posts on this site. salt flies are so large that they are easy to tie

Right there with you pancho, but you must have started at a younger age than I. I started in late 93 at the ripe old age of 13.

I picked up a fly rod shortly after my 50th birthday 3 years ago and started tying about 6 months later. Took the LRO fly-tying classes Dec. 2010 - Feb. 2011. Still a rank beginner, but I'm having fun with it. If I keep at it I'll have something to keep me busy when I get OLD. (By definition, OLD is 20 to 30 years older than you are at a given time.)

Been tying about 5 years but you can't tell it. I think it's like playing an instrument; You have to practice at it.
