    Thank you. I'm bored with tying "fish flies" and I have too many as it is. Plus, I have time in the afternoons while I sit around the shop. I figured it would be a good thing to help with the tying skillz.

    Thanks. I am new to the realistic side of tying. I just figured it was time to mess around with it (a little more) after roughly 25 years of tying functional flies. The key is, the proper materials. All the info you will need is on flytyingforum.com
