Glad to here your smoke free I know many of family members that have either passed or have had close calls because of smoking. Keep spending money on those chicken feathers!!

I quit nearly 30 years ago... the concept of $9/pack ALONE would cause me a heart attack !! When I quit, I was paying $0.95/pack

Hello. My Name is Stimmy, and it's been 7 days since I've bought any fly tying materials... I must admit, I was in the fabric store last night with my daughter and as I went down the aisle with the Kreinik craft threads, I started to sweat a bit... I started to reach out and I heard a voice saying "Do you REALLY NEED another spool of ANYTHING??" I put my hands back in my pocket and kept walking....

Good luck Streamwalker, you'll be in the program soon... just remember, the First Step is ADMITTING you have a problem!

Poor quality materials are destined to discourage beginner tiers and cause greater expense when the time comes to replace them.

YOUR way is not the ONLY way when tying flies!

Fly tyers can be masters of making things complicated!

You're only limited by lack of imagination. Be creative, experiment.

There you go........good stuff........there is something special about catching a trout on your own creation. Learning to tie the standards is great.......but don't be afraid to use your own imagination.....and break the rules!!! Good luck this weekend!!!

Welcome to the sickness steamwalker. Tying adds a whole new dimension to fly fishing. I've been at it for about 12 years now and can't imagine NOT tying flies. You're in it for the right reasons, enjoy it man! Looking forward to seeing your flies in the What Have You Been Tying thread.

We've got an amazing group of fly tiers on this forum, don't be afraid to ask for help.
