    Default BECOME A THINKING FLY TIER - Book Review - Apr 7, 2014

    BECOME A THINKING FLY TIER
    An engineer is a designer and has a drive to understand how things work with an eye toward improvement; this definition describes the author of Become A Thinking Fly Tier. Jim Cramer offers sixty years of fly tying experiences in this volume, sixty years of looking at fly tying through the eyes of an engineer.

    An engineer always tries to over think a problem and still get it wrong.
    Do you remember the Chevy that you had to lift the engine to change a spark plug?

    "... sixty years of looking at fly tying through the eyes of an engineer".
    Maybe looking at fly tying through the eyes of a trout (or whatever gamefish you're after) would be better? Lee Wulff was an engineer, tied flies for approximately 75 years, and looked at fly tying/fly fishing through the eyes of the trout. His success and his views are well documented and more applicable.
