Fly Tying
Gene L

Six month restart

Recommended Posts

In the middle of December, I got sick.  Dehydrated, blood loss, fell down in my yard and couldn't get up under my own power.  Spent 10 days in hospital and physical rehab.  Anyway, although I brought my vise to the rehab center, didn't tie a fly.  I've been out of the hobby since 15 December.  Got C.DIFF in rehab (I think) and my mind was definitely not on tying.

But last week, I decided to give it a try.  This is the 11th fly I've tied and I'm relearning old skills and was surprised at how much I'd forgotten and how little I retained. With the other 10,  each fly was a learning experience as was this one.  Still learning.

So any helpful criticism will be helpful.  Thanks in advance.  Size 12,  calf bory hair, moose tail.

Glad you made it, keep going, a dozen of this, a dozen of that, and you'll be cooking with gas soon enough.

Good to see you posting Gene L, fly looks fine, I would put  it in my box without hesitation. Keep on the mend, a lot of people get c diff or other superbugs at the hospital or rehab's nowadays.

I hope you get to feeling 100%, Ill keep you in my thoughts and prayers.  As for the fly, that’s something anyone would be proud of if they tied. I think this needs no criticism, it’s a fantastic tie!  :)

Welcome back! Glad your feeling better and that tie looks as good as I can do. Forgettting stuff is just temporary I think so your good to go.
