Besides cooking outdoors, I have a love of fly tying and art. I have figured out a way to combine the two. I decorate fly boxes then fill them with flies. Thanks for lookin.

Paymaster,
I recently started to tie flies again for the first time in about 40 years. I tried a #14 and could hardly see the dang thing. Had to go up to 12's before I could make any worthwhile. Nice job. Keep 'em flying...

Thanks!

Get a lighted magnifying glass. That will help bunches. Keep at it.
