I’ve been tying at the vice, putting together some clousers for my old fly shop, Off the Hook. It is fun to play around with materials and the clouser is pretty much ideal for throwing in a different material here or there. I tied up this and I nearly bit the thing myself. I’m hardly the first person to throw some bunny in a clouser, but damn… I think they look good, even if they aren’t really bonefish fare.
I’m not a detail oriented person, which makes fly tying an odd hobby for me. Still… there is something contemplative about it and something… well… almost fun about it. Now, I’m not a commercial tyer and if I had to tie a couple hundred of a single pattern I’d probably want to set my tying desk on fire, but as is… it’s nice.
