What was the first fly you learned to tie?
I've been looking at my progression as a tier over the past several years and I never forget the first fly I tied. It was this ugly flashy woolybugger made with some sort of sparkly chenile and a black marabou tail. Took it to Alaska with me when I was 13 and caught my first fish on a fly rod with it first cast. The same hole I was fishing 7 years ago and caught that fish I was at this summer at the age of 20....I still have more enjoyment tying large streamers now because of the wooly being my first tie even though around here most fish are caught on nymphs Im always willing to throw a streamer.
