Hi all. I've only browsed the site for a couple minutes. I've been tying flies for personal use since 2004 with a hiatus between 2008 until last year. I'm mainly looking to improve on my quality and techniques. I've got a hand-me-down vise and more soft hackle than I care to admit. My first fly fishing experience was trout fishing in Arkansas. It was a blast and I brought it back with me to Indiana to use on the panfish here. I'll fish for anything that bites, except turtles (trying to avoid that happening again.) Thanks for having me.
