Well done. The only time we should look down at someone is to help them up.

I've been a department store manager, a newspaper columnist, a bouncer in a rock 'n' roll joint and a substance abuse counselor, among other things. I finally left the mainstream for good to concentrate on fine art photography, though I make my real dough singing the national anthem at cockfights.

Cowboy ed most of my life currently been home with a broken back, pelvis, and sacrum joint

Started tying to pass the time and forget about the pain.

Would love to tie for a shop but don't know how to go about it

I just spit up the beer I was drinking (see other thread 4:00 pm beer)

 

I'm a controller who only gets out serious fishing twice a year, if I'm lucky, for 8 days of fishing total on the PM, 4 days in spring and 4 fall, and just enjoy the heck out of tying and giving out my flies to friends, as well as accumulating vast amounts of fly tying material that I'll never ever use up in my lifetime or the next.

I'm an Electronics Technician for a defense contractor at the Army's Aerial Gunnery Range Complex... I work on electronic control systems, surveillance systems, IP camera stuff, some electrical work, and a lot of IT type stuff (building computers, maintaining networks, etc.) Only been there for about six weeks- prior to that I was a Chief ET in the Coast Guard, "retired" after 21 years. I'm making a lot less $$$, but now there's no 24/7 duty, no nights, no weekends, no hauling ass in the middle of something, just 40 hours a week. I'm still having a few issues trying to adjust.... :blink:

I'm a licensed operator at a waste water treatment plant. It's a :poop: job but somebody has to do it. It's really not that bad. We are the 5th largest in the country I think. I do a lot of cleaning on reactors that heat treat the sludge. There are ony 4 of us that do it in our plant of 600 so nobody really bothers us. We know our job and just get it done. I also work on Regenative aftereburners. I did 9 years of rotating shift there. So it's nice to be on steady days.

 

I never tied for a shop but I have tied for a few friend who wanted something they couldn't find. They gave me some money to help with materials. So I guess I have tied for money, but it's at my pace. If I had to do it I'd probably hate it.
