I was three at this point.


That's the year I was born. Ed, I bet your sorry you went so specific with your response
I started tying sometime in 1996, so it would be about 17 years (or HA-30)

Started in 1961 in Scotland learning to tie wet flies. Taught by a grumpy old miner with fingers like sausages but he could tie.

1961.

I learned at my father's vise. Problem is he was right handed and I was left handed, and I never thought about it. I tried to reverse the vice about 10 years later, but there was no going back. First fly was a white calf tail streamer with a silver tinsel body. Used my mom's red nail polish to finish it off. We used these streamers for trout and crappies.

I tie all my own nymphs/emergers. Won't touch a dry fly. I don't use them enough to pay for the hackle and such.

The funny thing is I started out thinking I was only going to tie pts and hairs ears, the commonly used/lost flies. I haven't bought a nymph for over a year now because I tie every single one!

My parents bought me a fly tying kit for christmas when I was 10. I tied and fly fished pretty heavily with no teachers or help for a while but only recently have I been tying seriously again.
