Cleavon, I just tie for the fun of it and to keep my sons and myself stocked up. Figured if I sold them I would have deadlines to meet and it would be more like a job than a hobby. It's easy to learn to do with all of the videos on the web this days. It doesn't take long to master some basic skills that will have you making bugs that are classic proven gill catchers. Give it a try you'll be amazed how easy some flies are to tie. The website Fly Anglers on Line. com has some great step by steps.
Let me know if you get up this way.....I'm not far from the Outer Banks on the northern side of the Albemarle Sound......I don't fish too often, about 4 times a week when things are balanced...If I was suppose to work more the week would be longer! LOL
North Carolina is a great Bluegill state Cleavon with a lot of versatility from lakes to rivers and world renowned ponds.....Glad you found the site and I encourage you to join the group Fishing North Carolina Style and share some of your fishing adventures with us.....Have you ever fished the Northeastern sections of the state?
