  7. I only tie simple flies that I like to fish so I really don’t have a “nemesis” fly but when fly tying my nemesis is time and patience. I can’t sit at the vise and tie more than two simple flies at a time. In fact it’s more usual for me to tie one fly and a couple hours later tie another. I just get bored at the vise because I’m not really a fly tier, I’m just a guy who likes to fish and tying flies is just a small extension of that.
  8. I’ve always mistreated my Muck boots. I’m going to start taking care of them now.
  9. Only one of the six pictures is showing for me. I can only see the 2nd picture of bent wires in a tube. Is it like that for everybody or just me?
  10. If I buy an airbrush I think I could paint like that. Yeah, probably not. Your airbrushing skills and patience are off the chart. Really well done. it takes me back to the 70’s when we would pay a talented kid with an airbrush to paint our favorite album covers on the back of our jean jackets. You had to be one of those jacket painters, right?
  11. I’ve been doing the same thing or at least trying to. I still have a problem prying a dollar out of my wallet. I am getting better since my comfort is gaining in importance. Ive been eyeing up some storm bibs and a nice jacket for the boat but ponying up 5 bills for rain gear just seems wrong.
  12. Absolutely not. I was part of the force reduction as well. I was forced out of active duty into the reserves and then forced out of reserves into the national guard when combat arms units went to the guard and support units went to the USAR. I wanted to stay a 12B. I ended up retiring after 24 years and today I happily collect a small but decent pension. Funny thing was my life has been far better since being forced out into the civilian market while I was still relatively young. While I’m at it, the reserves and NG comprise almost 50% of our military. The vast majority of reservists have combat tours under their belts with many doing multiple deployments in both Afghanistan and Iraq and many other places where they are separated from their families. My one fishing partner is a disabled vet injured in Afghanistan. Sadly he can't get in and out of my boat anymore. Another friend was killed in Afghanistan. So this notion of not being a veteran because of reserve status is an old school mentality, so thank you for your service Johnny. I’ll thank a vet and graciously accept a thank you at every opportunity. To be rude or act offended over a kind gesture is a glaring character flaw and in no way representative of the vast majority of veterans.
  13. Indeed, nice tie. You now unlocked the secret that dry flies are not that difficult to tie. Just takes a little practice. Keep at it.
  14. Really nice. Love the colors and the shimmer. You’re a machine. Just ridiculously consistent great ties! I don’t know how you do it. I tried and tried and tried and only made a mess. Love seeing your work. Thank you sir. Some really nice patterns being offered up this month and of course, Flytire’s flies are all impressive. Keep it up guys, it’s getting me through all this freaking rain.
