Re: How much would you make tying flies?
I got into fly tying first as a challenge to see if I could tie flies that I fish with. I don't think you save much money tying for yourself because you end up buying lots of stuff. However once you have your materials you save on gas to go get them suckers. It is said that your own flies can be tied more durable than some that you buy. There is a lot of satisfaction in catching fish on flies that you tied with your own hand. My mind could not stand the concentation necessary to tie 6 dozen of the same pattern to sell as a custom fly..
