Thanks for all your encouragement and tips. Oyey: Yes, I'm a true novice. I have no idea even where to begin. So thanks for the link to the book. My learning curve is steep. But I'm looking forward to tying a fly and catching a trout with it.
I already have a lot of flies and at first I thought....why take the time and effort to tie a fly when I can just buy one for a couple bucks. But the more I thought about it I started looking forward to tying a few of my own.
Thanks again everyone.
I was made to participate in real life; not to be a passive observer of another's imagination communicated through advanced technology.
