I prefer to fish the flies I tie, so I spend about 3-10 days at the beginning of each different season or before a big trip and tie non-stop til I have all the boxes I want filled. Then I fish them. At the beginning of the next season I throw out what I didn't use or didn't work and refill all the boxes. So I would say I spend 25% of my time tying. However, I used to spend 200 days on the water now I am down to maybe 100-150 so I guess that percentage might have increased a little.

Tying vs fly fishing, I tie about 90%, fishing in general, I tie 20%, hope to change that this year.
