Gran-kids arrived last night and this morning were curious about Poppa's fly tying set up, so nothing else to do but sit down with them and tie a couple.

Looking forward to warm weather and getting them out on the water!

Can I use the scissors? Why do you do that? Can I have a feather? Why do you use the little comb on the deer fur? What's that shiny stuff for?

Almost forgot - "Poppa, it's my turn to be on your lap!"

I'm still grinning!

That's great to see kids taking interest in something other than video games.
An experience all of you will remember. :)
Thanks for sharing it with us.

Hey Ed

Even Izzy knows there are no wings on a Wooly Bugger.

She was insistent that some krystal flash go into the fly!

Just bustin' yer chops.

That's a nice tying area you've got there.

You've come a long way, my friend. I'm very proud of you!

I hope you clipped off the hook points and sent their flies home with them. Good stuff.

Don't get to see the grands nearly enough since they live in Farmington Hills, Mi and we're up here in Carbondale, Pa. Just a 10 or so hour drive........

It really was terrific to have them want to know about all the "stuff" and to want to try their hand at it. Surprised me how intent they were as we tied. Plenty of questions about what and why.

Looking forward to having them over in warmer weather so that I can get them out on the water and chasing pan fish with my 3 wt.

God's gift for having raised children? Grandchildren.

Mine, now 11 and 10, remember their first tie and ask to see my recent ties.
