Let’s tie one on…

I’ve taken the next step in angling. I picked up a vise from my friend Bones (thanks Bones!), got some tools and materials from my friend Thurston (thanks Thurst!) and today I tied my first fly. It’s an ugly beast but it’s mine.

Material choice was purely based on laziness. The yellow thread was on the bobbin Thurst gave me. The hook was loose in the box, and the hackle, well, it seemed like a decent size. As Matt told me on Facebook yesterday when I posted a pic of the vise, this rabbit hole is going to be fun to jump down…

Happy angling… and tying!
