    What did you tie today?

    Suppose these don't really qualify as tied last night but they're doing quite well on a local stillwater.Over the years I've realised that I spend to much time tying flies when I should have been fishing them.

    Is it all about the numbers???

    Every time I go fishing I enjoy myself. If I catch 1 it's a great day fishing. If I don't catch any, it's a great day fishing.
