If you have been at fly fishing for any length
of time, you have probably begun to tie your own flies by
now, or have at least given the matter some casual thought.
If you number yourself as one of the later, consider yourself
lucky. You are about to be saved a tremendous amount
If you are among the legions of us who fit into
the former group, take heart. We are, in the next several weeks,
going to bring you relief from one of the main obstacles to
success in tying. We are going to help you out of the abyss
of confusion. We shall rescue you from the grip of chaos.
We will spare you the specter of bewilderment and frustration
attendant with material storage and identification.
We will explore a number of nifty ways of
organizing the materials we all accumulate, and in which we
take such delight! (at least until we try to lay our hands on
that one item, we know we have, which is called for in our
favorite pattern). When I first got started, just like you, I got
what I needed for a pattern, tied up a bunch, caught fish and
all was well with the world.
