Default Re: Why Can't I Tie a Simple, Standard Tie Anymore?

Thanks or the opinions. Lots of good points. Been thinking about it.

Also remembered the day when I would pop open a 100 box of 3906B's and tie 50 pheasant tails and 50-ish hares ears. Then open a box of 14's and repeat. Is odd remembering the days when I was used like slave labour because I had good eyes and fingers.

I think part of the issues is I do it just because I can. I don't have to tie in all one color or match the standard. I know what has worked for me and how much I can get away varying form the standard.

The other things which kept coming to mind is a possible simple appreciation of subtlety, or maybe I am sort of 'punch-drunk' from one too many rounds of the 'game of nods'.
