There I was...tying my first fly on my new vice. A simple chartreuse/ white clouser...looking fact fly I'm feeling that is going to qualify as my best attempt yet, in my VERY new hobby.....whip finish....started to say to myself..."well, all right!"....Then I see the dumbell eyes were put on the wrong side of the hook...DOH!!

Been there, done that!

Well at least you're tying. I've only tied once this winter, I should thank the young flyfishing enthusiast for getting me off my butt.

Nothing like gettin' them on your own fly... it won't be long now! Albies, Bonito - this is your year Doug.

Keep the fly! It will still work when the schoolies are thick.

I know the feeling.

Like Sully said, save it. Some guys tie for bones or permit like that, on a sandy bottom it'll kick up some dust & let them know it's there.
