Default Tying and Audio-Books?

This thought occured to me yesterday. I was wondering if it would be possible to pay enough attention to both an audio-book and the flies one was tying in order for it to be worthwhile.

Do any of y'all listen to audiobooks while tying? Know someone who does?

Thanks

Default Re: Tying and Audio-Books?

For years, I've said I need to try listening to audio books with as much driving as I do but as of date I have not. I usually put on a music CD or two while I'm tying up flies when I get the chance to tie flies. On occasion, I will put in a favorite movie DVD that I have seen a thousand or so times so that I don't have to pay attention to every detail of the movie. I'm pretty focused when I tie because I need all the help that I can get when it comes to my tying capabilities. I would think if I had to listen to an audio book and concentrate on what was going on there that it would make my already bad looking flies look worst, if that is possible.
Later,
Terry

I think it depends on teh attention abilities of the listener.

I listien to audio books a lot, but I do it when driving, working in the yard, or just listening to favorite readers. (I particularly love NIgel Planner reading Terry PRatchett Discworld novels.)

I don't think I could concentrate on fly tying while listening to the book, or vice versa. Heck, I often miss turns while driving becasue I get too engrossed in the book. Might ot be safe driving, either.
