    Default Best part of fly tying?

    When you knock over an almost full bottle of head cement and it gets everywhere.... :P

    Haven't had that one happen, and hope I never do.
    The one that drives me crazy is to put three hooks near my vice, do a few things, look back and there are only two. Where do they go?

    I'm torn, between picking out which recipe to tye, and the joy a rising fish gives when he falls for it.
    Ultimately, it's not catching fish that satisfies, but knowing how.

    Winding hackle (especially parachutes), and the thread breaks. You get to watch everything you just did unwind itself in slow motion.

    Hey Jimmie they go where all of the right handed gloves go!
    I hate putting my scissors down and having them disappear! Like I haven't moved from my chair and they are gone.......then they turn up in the dogs dish or something!
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.

    To me, the journey of learning is almost more fun than arriving at the destination of knowing.

    I was doing a weave on a rod and my tweezers vaporized. That was over a year ago and I still have not found them. I think they may have dropped and bounced into the heater vent. It's the only place left. It also fits with Murphy's law of selective gravity.

    "Any object dropped will gravitate to the nearest small hole from which it can't be retrieved." (Jimmie....Neal?)

    Flanigan's corollary; "Murphy was an optimist." He also wrote the Flannigan's finagelling factor; " The number when multiplied by the answer you got, gives you the answer you should have had."
