Fly Tying / Re: Fishable and Fanciful

Thank you.  Good for you finding ways to add your own ideas into your work.  I just had cataract surgery in both eyes and still having frequent visits to my opthamologist until the pressure in my eyes goes back to what it was before surgery.  I've been on drops(successfully so far) to prevent glaucoma damage for years.  Were I farsighted rather than nearsighted I'd probably have more problems with painting than I do.

I have glaucoma too. My surgery went bad.

Ouch!  Was your surgery for cataracts or glaucoma?  If for cataracts, laser of surgeon knife?

Just as I have come to expect of you, ''Awesome.'' I admire you work and see you have way more patience than I do. I enjoy seeing your work, but I'll stick with foam and leave the pro/artistic work to you, you are definitely better at it than I could ever be. Thanks for sharing all your work with all of us, we appreciate it. Take care, John. :smile:

Ronald,

I've always admired your work. I read your how-to a few years ago and made all my tools as you described and adapted a few of my own ideas. I can't see very well anymore, but I find dotting Poppers relaxes me and helps with my anxiety even if they don't look so great. Thank you for sharing your knowledge.

Good news, we have not been able to get out fishing yet. Wife's kin all in Harvey's path and we were checking with them and now vehicle problems, seems one thing after the other, but it will all work out in the end. Keep catching those crappie! Take care, John. :smile:

Went out of a pond.  Took a long time to find the fish and/or the pattern they wanted.
Got some nice crappie during the last hour.
All on a sparkle eyelash yarn fly.

What a hoot. I've tied flies blindfolded, with no vise, and with crazy unconventional materials but never in my sleep!  Ms. Marilyn better keep a close eye on you
