The New Wave

Morgan's Creative Mind At Work

Ethan At Work

Ever since my grandchildren have been able to they have sat down at my desk and started to tie flies. There first flies were a bit rough, but as they progress they have been better. We decieded it was time for there own desks and vise, I have a couple of Thompson's from years past which will serve them nicely. We put together a tool kit with the basics, and an assortment of threads, hooks, feathers, and hair, enough to get them going. I will build them a portable desk to do their tying, and they can take it home, and continue their creations.

I have shown them the basics of locking in a hook, starting the thread, and a selection of some materials, and allowed them to create something a fish would eat.

Perhaps this is something they will pursue and keep in their life.
