"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life -- so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."

I usually try to keep my SW stock up...unless I'm tying specific requests from a few guide friends, I usually tie for 5-8 hours. Weekends vary - it could be another 5-8 or 0 depending upon family "events" (3 kids!).

I'm the same way. Some weeks I spend more time buying materials than tying . I'm sure I'm the only one, too, right?

Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.
