Fit to be Tied....

I hope go fishing soon, so I've started to tie some flies. I am neither a particularly fast, nor skillful fly tyer. Some people will sit down and tie a dozen flies of a certain pattern, then tie another dozen of a different size. Not me. I get bored tying the same thing over and over again. After a while I start to change things and experiment. It's kind of like my cooking - I tend not to follow recipes very closely. So after an hour or so, my flies tend to take on a mutated, pieced-together, Frankenstein's monster resemblance to the original fly pattern. These changes just might catch fish...but I usually don't fish often enough to have the chance to give them a try.
