Martin, I have been tying flies for about 40 years now. I got started when I bought a box at an auction for $5.00 dollars. It was full of feathers tools and other stuff. The vise was a Herters and after a few years I replaced it with a better vise. I would imagine that I have spent several hundereds of dollars on stuff and it has been a great hobby. I am mainly a warmwater fisherman but I tie flies of all types just because I like to tie. I have given away most of them and you are correct that it is a hobby that cost money. I wouldn't trade it for anything. I still buy flies becuase I want to see how they are tied. Your article hits the spot.
