Do you love big bluegill?
What was that part of "Murphy's Law" you fill the space you occupy! If you are like me the only reason I don't have more stuff is that I don't have any more room to put it in. The other realization is that after you acquire all the stuff, learn all the techniques for every kind of fly...both Fresh and Salt water...that you probably catch 90% of your fish on 6 flies! Oh, we are a sick bunch...and thank for pointing it out.
Thats not THE Steve Gibson, is it? He's also known as "Gibby," and has a lot of great patterns to his credit.
He knows whereof he speaks, if anyone does. It is, in the end, within all men to go from the sublime to the ridiculous. It's why we take simple exercise and turn it into bungee jumping with sharks while snowboarding down Everest with BigFoot. We simply cannot leave well enough alone.
I simply reckon there are far worse things I COULD spend my time and money on. Which reminds me...anybody want to buy a slightly used snowboard?
How true if your intention is to save money you'll need putting your attention towards some other means. If your tying for pleasure what a great way to get lost in your moments. I get pleasure from many means (hobbies) all I will admit are tension relievers and in today's world we all need something we can concentrate on and get lost in. I have a few things I love doing and sometime that can be a hindrance, it can affects excelling in others and we all want to be be great at what we do. Bottom line is hobbies are not cheap but some are cheaper than others but how can you put a price on sanity/relaxation. When your hobby is used for profit somehow at least for me it take something away from it I love making things slow and easy so that I can get lost much deeper in what I'm doing. BOTTOM LINE HOBBIES ARE A GREAT THING EVERYBODY SHOULD HAVE AT LEAST ONE.
A MUST READ for TIERS of all SKILLS!!!!!!! SO TRUE!!!!!!
Jim, I used to be able to keep all my tying stuff in a shoe box!!!!! Now to go to a show or event I carry 2 brief cases!!!!!!! Break even, LOL, NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!!!!!
i have always said fly tying is a black hole.there is always something or the same stuff in a different color, it never ends.i figure i would have to tie about 50,000 flies to break even.
Steve, I love reading this and rereading this!!!!!!!!!! Probably higher than that now since Steven Tyler is wearing hackles in his hair!!!!!!!!
A TIMELESS READ!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
