It's a little like "taking a guided trip behind the vise". There should be plenty of tiers there that will be glad to help.

Very kind thought Hugh and great way for us all to learn from each other and to meet new friends.

As for my difficulties; I have the hardest time tying wings on both my wet and dry flies.
