You will find that if you lay out and prepare all the materials that you are planning to use to tie the wooly buggers that you can easily cut that time in half. It just takes practice. Keep at it.

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer

Darwinism seems to have become a politically protected sacred cow, and I've never seen a sacred cow I haven't wanted to roast - the fact that you are not supposed to criticize it is just too irresistible to me.

Since you ask about what time others take, I can layout and tie 18 woolly buggers in about an hour. I tied custom flies for years, but re-filling the shop fly bins was a constant source of income. Not that I ever made any money at it, I usualy traded the flies to the store for materials for my other more profitable custom tying. I use a rotary vise to wind both the body, hackle and ribbing, and I have years and years of practice. The shop I spent many years in had a bumper sticker that read "Time spent fishing will not be deducted from a persons live." I add fly tying to that list. Tying and fishing are two things that should never be measured in seconds, minutes.

The fish care less than we do!

I would say that dozen flies a hour is a very decent tempo for an amateur - 1 hour tying = about a day fishing

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson
There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929
