We had two West Highland Terriers (now one) and collect old Westie figurines, etc. I'll have to take a snap of our curio cabinet.

I work for Roy Rogers Restaurants and collect odds and ends of his collectibles, books, etc.

Regrets. I've got a few.
But then again, too few to mention.

Fly Tying / Fishing Gear ...







A few examples :

Coffin Fly - Wulf Style



SteelHead Tube



Traditional Spey tied on a Blind Eye Hook with Silk Gut Eye



Shitty Pic of a FeatherWing



If I'm drinking and smoking I'm tying in the garage.....



Some Drunken Dry Flies from that session









So yeah. i have no pictures of the rods. There's lots of em....... I have a problem. But I swear, They all have their particular uses. Some even particular streams.....

There's more tying stuff than pictured, but I don't have pictures of my bins's contents. So that's just a very general overview.

Heh, well thank you. If I ever get around to photographing all my stuff ( which I'm sure I won't ) I'll add it to here. Theres just too much of it.

Aside from being a hobby, I'm a Fly Fishing Guide in Alaska. As well as a SteelHead Guide here in WNY.

Although when asked about what I do for work I answer Carpenter because my real full time job when I'm not in Alaska is Commercial and Residential construction.

So I guess I collect tools to .....

You know, I never drew the connection between Roy Rogers Restaurants and Roy Rogers. Laughing

How did I not know that? Rolling Eyes Laughing

WnyPiper, I tie flys too, but after looking at your set up and flies, I am NEVER going to show any pictures of mine on here! Laughing Good work! Nice setup too. Cool

Ahhh bro it shouldn't be like that. I've tied flies and collected materials over time. I didn't come out the gate tying flies like that ( and I'm by no means super at it either. I can point out things in all of those flies that could use improvement ) It takes practice. I'd love to see samples of your ties. I'm sure we will be able to teach each other things and we will both walk away from it better tiers.

I request that you reconsider your position on posting your ties. I for one would love to see them.

It's not modesty, I'm just not that good... but I only tie a couple dozen flies a year or so, it's one of those projects I keep on the back burner. Maybe at some point I'll photograph some. A very blurry photograph to make them look better than they really are. Laughing

I also used to make some wooden lures, they really weren't too bad. I kept one of them, the rest I gave away to friends. I need to get a new lathe so I can make some more.

Narwhale fillets are good anytime. Manatees fillets are best at midnight.

After cleaning out my kitchen cupboards after 10 years it seems that I unknowingly collect Pyrex and quart size Mason jars.
