Flytying for me; presentation for the fish


Flytying: 75% for the tyer and 25% for the fish

Presentation: I become ever more convinced, given the vast array of patterns out there, that the pattern primarily gives us more pleasure than the fish and that in the end it is how we present that pattern that determines our success more than the pattern itself. I think that speaks less to our understanding re the importance of presentation (we do know that as a flyfisher) as to how much we worry over patterns and match the  hatch minutiae. The tying seduces us as much or sometimes more than the fish. That’s ok..particulary when the pattern or experiment works!
