I have probably been tying for about 40 years now. The first 15 years or so were pretty casual, maybe tying 2 or 3 nymphs, a couple wet flies and a couple dry flies. No internet, no fly fishing mags, hardly any instruction of any type. If you didn't know someone who could show you how to tie a pattern, you were out of luck. The last 25 years have been an explosion both in materials and techniques.
