It's been a while since I stocked up on some new flies. I haven't tied any in quite a long time. So I started trying to come up with a plan to restock my buggers and clousers in a short amount of time. But wait....I have no time. I've been so busy, that when I get home i'm lucky to make it to the couch. I don't want to think, I don't want to create, I just want to veg out. I've come to realize this could be the onset of laziness. Yes, I work all day 6-7 days a week, but we are talking about fly tying, not replacing spark plugs in a bulldozer. (I can only assume they have spark plugs, and they must be big, so I imagine it would be a big amount of work.) So anyway, while I think a lot about it during the day, by the time I get home, i'm whipped, i'm finished.
We will be heading out in a few weeks for a weekend fishing trip. I must have my flies. Well, I came up with a compromise. I will tie my clousers in the next week, and I will get my buggers, at least some of them, from a guy I know that does a great job. I can get a dozen beadhead buggers, any size, any color, for about 6.95 with shipping. Not a bad deal. Saved some time, didn't really save any money, but the job is getting done. I must have my flies for the trip!
Why must I have so many flies for this trip, you may ask? Mainly because of the deep water, submerged trees, and the way I tend to sling those dang things everywhere but in the water sometimes. lol.
