About 20 years. Any time now, I hope to finish my first fly.

How Long Have You Been Tying?

I tied my first flies in 1955 or 6, they were pretty pathetic attempts. I tied off and on for the next few years, and then in 65, I got serious about it. Fifty seven years from my first attempts, and 47 years since I got serious. I have enough materials to last me another 40 years or so.

Since the winter of 1979 if I remember right. Mostly trout flies and salmon patterns.
