djs sparked this poll, Please vote on when you began fly tying. Experience/proficiency level not important. Just when you began.

Roughly 25 years ago, still loving every minute of it.

About 30 years ago now. And it's one of the best things I've even done. Catching fish on your own flies really takes this sport to a whole new level

I guess you can put my start date in as being the Fly Tying Jam. Already upgrading vise and seems like I am as addicted to tying as I am to Fly-Fishing.

I hadn't realized how many old farts we have here. WOW Ed, 1966? I was 4 years old.

Sorry but I couldn't edit the poll answers to move your votes but there were only two. Curious to see if there are any over 50 year veterans.

Hey, I was "only" 6 years old.

The start for me was tying red dyed bucktail to spinner and lure treble hooks. My Dad and his fishing buddies used to make their own spinners and jigs, and I got "drafted" to tie hair and feathers to the treble hooks and jigs.

Child slave labor.

42 years for me. When I was 12 my dad took up fly fishing and tying. That's when I started as well. Some of the best memories of my life.
