I like tying a fly for the first time. Maybe the second time or two after that trying to figure out how to get it right. The validation for doing it right comes when you get a fish to hand. After that-I hate having to reload. Somehow I want each fly to last forever. I mean there is a personal investment in time spent at that vise. It drives me monkey/cheetah flip crazy to lose a fly in less time than it took me to tie it. Every submerged branch or limb in the air stealing hours of my life- its just not right. It’s just not right. Of all the fish I tie for- I despise you only you tree fish. Only you.
