Fly tying: Eek! to Normalcy (Dry Fly Headaches)

I putzed around with some dry flies and came away with renewed certainty that I gather no satisfaction in tying them. I tie enough for each season and rarely try to perfect the components. It is obvious that if you don’t practice, you won’t get better…or is it in my case?

Unkempt efforts…I won’t even attempt to justify them. Eek! So, I retreat to the comfort of a well worn whatever…a little pupa…the ubiquitous pupa, with bead of course. Don’t feel too bad for the monstrosities above…I tied about a dozen of each…maybe.

Fly Fishing & Women (pick up the rod..and the bobbin)

The draw is as self evident as can be. Women could only stand by so long, watching, observing the life along the stream before picking up the rod. Women were sent to fetch the water. How fortunate. They were quick to see what was taking place while the man walked the plow or loaded the cart. I think some intuitive code awaits many more women to pick up the rod….and to sit at the vise to create.
