Tie or Fish -- Which do you do

Recommended Posts

Don't know where people find the time to do either, tied 3 flies 2 weekends ago and got caught up

with something else, don't remeber what but something to fix or one of the kids needed something.

maybe this winter I'll get to tie and do some rods,

I have a stocked pond in my back yard and also a rice canal that borders my property. And some of the best inland saltwater fishing in the world is just minutes from my house. And I still tie more than I fish.

I tie way more than fish. In fact between high gas prices and some other stuff goin on this spring/summer I barely got out 3 times where it's more normal for me to get out almost weekly, and my doctor just told me that my vitamin D level has dropped so far below what's considered healthy he's never seen such a low level before.

 

I always knew animals had to get sunlight to produce vitamin D but didn't people had to also until I did a little research last week.

 

I'm not sure it was the amount of time I spent indoors this year, though I spent more time inside than I have since I was a kid, but I'm gonna be sitting under my daylight lamp a few minutes everyday!

Willowhead, I tied commercially for many years, and my fly boxes are pretty well stocked, but there's always something new or different to tie! I still have some years left before I can retire, but I just wish I had more time NOW! :(

 

Thanks for your concern though! :rolleyes:

 

 

:dunno: :hyst:

I started tying this year simply because, in the long run, it's much more cost effective than buying flies... I started off fishing way more, and tying only to replenish my box, but in the past few months I've been tying pretty much every day. I would have to say, I enjoying tying as much as fishing.

It depends on what time of year it is. In the winter, I tie more than I fish, but I do fish. I'll tie lots of flies that I know I'll lose throughout the year. Build up my supply. The rest of the year I fish more than I tie. And lose flies! :D
