I'm certain it's money we'll spent. There is a certain enjoyment in catching fish with something you've tied yourself.

Sometimes I think about how I could have bought a lifetime of flies with what I spend on materials, tools and a nice vise. What keeps me at peace with it is the fact that I only want to catch on flies that I have tied myself. I don't look at it as a way to try to save money but another hobby that I enjoy when I can't be fishing.

Don't worry many of us Think The Same,even though I've heaps of Tying Gear I've just ordered 350 extra Hooks & am about to buy some Bugger Packs.
There's really nothing better than catching Fish on your own Creations even though it costs heaps.

As mentioned Welcome to " The Addiction" it's good to see another one that's Hooked.

Thanks guys and and as stated above I'm not in it for saving money at all I know I can buy flies for 70 cents a piece I just wanna do it for the joy of it.

And flytier your so right!!! I look at people who spend $100 a week on smokes or $20 a week on dip and insane amounts on other drugs. And think to myself well at least I'm not spending money on useless stuff like that and I'm putting my money into something that I will get a return on.
