    The funny thing is I see some of you tying flies on 20,22 even 24 hooks and wonder how on earth you do it! I guess it's a matter of perception.

    Amazing job!! I would be afraid to fish that rod because I know it would break on me and I'd be stuck having to do it all over.

    I'm a creative guy and this just blows my mind. Completely lost as to how you did this but it looks amazing. Extremely well done.

    Well I'm about to start building my first rod this weekend but maybe once I make something that doesn't look like a goopy popsicle stick I'll give it a shot.

    When your ready I can email you one of the less complicated patterns out of the book. I'll walk you through the spacing and you should be good to go.

    Hey Swirlchaser. That is some wonderful work that! Here I am just messing around trying to learn the basic wrapping techniques and I see this.

    I have a question about this design. When you do your finish, there are a lot of thread ends. Does this mean that every "line" you wrap is an idividual piece?
