It's amazing the little things that you pick-up watching and learning from more experienced tiers. I started to teach myself, but in just two classes with a local fly fishing club, I've learned a TREMENDOUS amount from them. Supplement that with the SBS's and tie-alongs here, the ongoing forum threads, Charlie Craven's book, Skip Morris's book, and any number of YouTube video's, and WHO KNOWS??? I MAY actually catch a FISH with a fly that I tied this season!!!
