How long does it take you to tie a fly?

But If im not familiar with the pattern around 8-10.
Fancy streamers I spend up to 40 minutes on with all the different body parts, and perfect wraps.

The more of a pattern I tie the faster it becomes.

Most patterns involving a few elements like tail, body, wing, thorax, collar, wingcase, etc. (pass lake, Adams, bwo, EHC, buggers, etc.) it's a solid 6 minutes after I get into it and the materials organized.

How long is a piece of string ?

For instance, something simple like a hare's ear nymph or a woolly booger... about 2 minutes, a standard dry fly about 5-6 minutes, a feather wing streamer with tinsel or floss body and ribbing maybe 10 minutes. A hair wing salmon fly, about 20 minutes.And a full dress Atlantic salmon fly anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours depending on the pattern.
These are assuming the materials are already laid out and ready to go.And this is for an "average" fly... nothing that I spend extra time with such as a show case type fly.

But, don't worry about the time just have fun and tie, before you know it you will be a lot faster.

if you are tying one you have never tied before it may take you longer than a fly you have tied a zillion times.
it all depends.

Each cocktail doubles my time :-)
I guess my main comment is tying really fast and sacrificing quality is kind of like a hot dog eating contest. Yes, someone can eat 50 dogs in 10 minutes, but how do they really feel afterwards.
Happy Tying, Cheers, Futzer
