Something I realized yesterday
So I just started tying and I am working on zebra midges in size 18 and 20. And I really struggled with the first few I did but now I can actually get something that looks like what I would buy in the store.

But even though they are not perfect, they are mine. And that's a pretty cool feeling.

Right on Chauncey. Being able to tie your own flies and make tweaks to existing patterns or develop your own variations is a very rewarding feeling. Wait until you catch some fish on them. Better still, wait until you hand some off to your buds and you watch them catch fish on them. :thumbsup:

Feel free to post some of your ties in the "What have you been tying" thread.

Congrats on starting. this might give you a few tips to help, not only with the midges but other flies too down the line.
