    Hi all,

    I live in Christchurch, NZ. I have been tying "utilitarian" flies since I was a young guy, but a few years ago desired to tie a better-looking fly. I started to get involved in forums and think I've watched all of Davie McPhail's videos. I really enjoy seeing how experienced tiers break a fly down into its parts, and how they put one together so precisely.

    I enjoy fly tying as a hobby in its own right - if I could never fish again, I'd still enjoy tying. Apart from filling boxes to the brim, tying lets me dream of fishing, lets me escape for a little while. I follow a number of blogs, and am involved in a couple of forums. I must say this is a very nice, friendly site.

    Hi Rudy,

    Living in the Low Countries I am exactly 12 hours apart from you, still we share the same passion and get to meet in places like this one to interact with others with similar interests. Pretty neat, huh? :cool:

    Welcome.
