Hey all,

 

I'm new around these parts. Been stalking the forums a bit and just recently picked up fly fishing. Been a fisherman all my life, just never really touched a fly rod. I'll be mostly focused on tying my own flies, it just seems that I cannot simply be satisfied what I see on the shelves my curiosity never stops, so I felt the need to get a vice and let the experimenting begin!

Thanks guys!

 

Not only will this be a new hobby, or obsession but also therapy from the madness of the everyday grind!

Welcome to the forum.
Keep the first one you tie in a safe place.
You will be amazed how you improve as time goes by. I don't have my first one but some of the first ones I tied....they are fun to reflect on.

Welcome to the site, Smooth.  Glad to see you here, and looking forward to seeing some results from your experiments!
