I like books, and your computer will never get a virus from a book either.

We are trying to mimic nature when fly tying. It too is part of the art that does not come easy. It takes time and patience.
I find some tiers are speed demons when they tie. The world's gone off and gotten itself in a big hurry .
I tie at the same pace I fish at, very slow and deliberate. My flies always turn out better this way. Plus its great therapy for getting the stink off of the day.

You think it's bad on the internet.. It's a sad state of affairs when high school and college classes too have turned to youtube.. When I left highschool.. I went on to college like the normal every day american dream.. finish hs.. get a degree.. didn't take me long to realize I was wasting my time.. forward a decade.. I decided.. you know what.. I should give college another shot.. half my classes showed youtube videos.. seriously? you're charging me $700/class to do something I can do for free at home??? and I left yet again.. and I use to wonder why there were so many idiots with degrees working at the restaurants I work at... and I still wonder why they complain its so "tough"
