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.

Bob, since it’s you hosting, I’ll sign up. No idea what I will tie. Probably something in the nymph/bead head family.
