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

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.
