Default i've joined the club

well $220+ later i have joined fly tying
i have to admit that its a bit frustrating at first. for few reasons:
1. its a big investment up front,, but just like with fly rod set up, once you get over first initial purchase, seems like ill be able to expand my materials collection w/out as big of shocker in $$
2. Fly Tying is HARD.....very HARD. so far only my wooly buggers look like i could have bought them at a store, all other flies im still struggling with, but to be fair i's only been 2 weeks and i've done only few hours of tying.
looking forward to improving my fly tying. even going to ORVIS free fly tying class tomorrow in LA

3. biggest problem i have is Whip finishing , and getting materials to stay where i need them, and i do keep breaking thread quite a bit.
