I finally drove to Townsend to get all of my fly tying materials yesterday from LRO! I have anxiously been waiting for a while for this stuff to get all of this stuff together. Like a child on Christmas morning of course I couldn’t wait one more moment to get started so I immediately drove to Walmart and got a TV dinner desk, a lamp, plastic container to put all my stuff in, and a clamp on light. All of which I had found would make tying much from my research. After the first couple of green weenie’s that I tied, I knew that it was hooked. Just the thought of catching a fish on something that I constructed with my own hands gets my blood flowing. I also taught myself to tie the zebra midge, elk hair caddis, and a parachute sulphur dun all in my first sitting (in all fairness my “first sitting” was like 5 hours long). I am going to post pictures of my creations as soon as I can figure out how to get my camera to focus on such a small object. Any suggestions? When I was finished I had tied around 20 or so flies which saved me around thirty bucks or so if I had bought them. I have to keep reminding myself of the this fact to make me feel better about how much I spent on my equipment . But it was totally worth it!
