I feel that you visit this site for fun, for fly tying, and hopefully to be inspired. I also feel that for some of you right now, in these dark times, it may feel inappropriate and wrong. I completely understand that many of you will not want to visit during this time as you might find it trivial in respect to what the world is facing right now. However, I am also aware that if we are going to be spending more time at home, then we need to find things we can do, read and learn to pass at least some of the time. In addition, many of you are older and may enjoy this as a place to hang out and chat about things. And, let’s be honest, if we’re going to be at home more, then maybe now’s the time to sort out those hooks and materials and fill those fly boxes for the coming season… so for those of you that continue to visit, how about we really get into the comments? I am in quarantine myself so I’m ready to answer any fly tying questions you may have. Let’s check on each other, look after each other’s mental health and well-being while feeling calmed and inspired by our chosen art of fly tying. Some of you will live alone and some of you will know people who live alone, give them a call, show some empathy, they may need someone to do the shopping for them, or just chat? Be kind, be nice and let’s look out for each other. Stay safe, keep calm and tie flies.
