IMO


Without question. It's an art with a touch of science. That allows artsy and mr science folks plenty to differ on.

In high school I took an aptitude test.
Result-be a teacher but never work with my hands.
Tied thousands of very efficient fish catchers but nary a fisherman catcher.
Me thinks we kid ourselves .

I always smoked enroute and leaving the store. Driving and smoking is a simple pleasure. You think I'm anal retentive about stupid fly fishing nonsense, you should talk pipe with me. Its a detailed lifestyle, my friend.


You and Les....

There's a man who fully comprehends the magic of pipe. "You can't take a picture of me, I need my fishing pipe." See, that's the way its done. One pipe for each tobacco, proper resting, even the way the bowl is shaped which effects the burn and thus the taste.

You don't just put it in your pipe and smoke it, people.

It most certainly is, which is why dubbing on a hook is a good time. Jay's streamer design fell into the same category, too, "lash some stuff on a hook til it looks good." Its that very reason it takes me so long to tie flies, I start to wander through the materials drawer and put weird things into new places.

There's a time and a place for ultra traditional, same with the soulless mechanics of the commercial churners, but I'll be damned if I want to lose the enjoyment of lashing #OOPS# to a hook.

I used to be that way w/ my pipe smoking, Gary. Now, not so much. I get a pipe nice and broken in, good cake built up, and smoke whatever fancies me.

I used to smoke my pipes A LOT more though. Now that I have kiddies, no more smoking in the house, and my wife doesn't like how it makes the car smell. I pretty much only get to smoke while I'm fishing.

Got out today with my pop and a few friends. We couldn't catch a darn fish with this fly, but they did take other flies today. Just wondering if certain streams this pattern is defective? Or is it just user error?

I have found that it seems to work better on rainbows and brookies.
