I started tying Before I turned 12 I would take hair from my dog and horses and tie them onto a hook. Then when I turned 12 I got a real kit. I can't remember how much later but after I tied some flies I started fly fishing.
Flyfisher117 is amazing at tying flies I've been tying longer, but he practices and practices, where I just practice. I still have him beat in the Elk Hair Caddis though
