Default 12 Step Program

Hello, My name is Larry and it's been two weeks since I've tied a fly... umm, yeah, I have to admit, I *HAVE* looked at catalogs and straightened out my materials though...

I've had a good chuckle over the past month or so reading the "I need a Prescription" and "Like I need another expensive hobby" type threads. When I see these I think about how long I've been doing this and the fact that I started when I was 9 years old and I get a little nostalgic thinking about the "Old Days" of Champion silk, Herter's and Thompson vises, Mustad hooks, and the limited volume of shops and sources for materials... AND a lack of the Internet!!

Amazing how far it's come... I have to admit, I wouldn't give up this expensive sickness for much of anything. My eyesight isn't quite what it was, my grip isn't as tight as it used to be, but I'll continue to tie as long as I'm able, and as long as I fish... maybe longer.

What a great idea, let's put together a 12 Step Program. Please feel free to contribute ideas.

Step 1. Explain why you need a hare's mask to a vegan.

Step 2.?
