I've been an angler since 3. I Caught my first trout on a fly when I was 18. I finally taught myself how to tie when I was 22. I've been tying for 10 years with a serious affinity to classic flies.
NW PA, Lake Erie Tribs, Oil Creek, Sugar Creek, Little Sandy Creek.
Other than fishing/tying: Golf, starting Photography, Archery.
I have found, recently, that it is a good move on the flyfisherman's part to invest in a shed, garage or any other structure that is not connected to the main living quarters. Primarily as a respite, but also to quell any beatings, both verbal and physical that come from the feminine co-inhabitor. This, after finding dye, waxes and animal bi-products littered all over the kitchen, as well as the ceiling. A word to the wise.........don't use the good pots. -Myself
