You might be surprised, but I’ve been known to tie flies while riding in a car. But this week, I’m tying flies in Paradise!
Last fall, it was on the road to the Pendleton Round-up in September. I was able to finish a dozen RiverKeeper Soft Hackle Cripples.
Or how about this video mentioned in my post Fly tying – on the road?
I’m in the middle of a little R & R on Maui doing…well, not much.
A typical day you ask? Well, here it is:
- Get up & have coffee
- Drink a breakfast smoothie
- Workout – either the Tabata workouts my wife teaches online (www.karenkreft.com) or a run
- More coffee on a chaise lounge next to the ocean and read a book
- BBQ fresh fish for lunch
- Back to the beach with a book
- Coffee, beer, or Moscow Mule in the afternoon…I’ve had them all
- Watch a beautiful sunset
- More reading
Pheww! That’s a lot of activity for one day…
Well, I have to fit in a little fly tying as well. I thought I might tie a few flies if we got a rainy day or two. Well I did tie a half dozen yesterday!
I brought over my vise, tools and materials to Maui. Packed them in a suitcase.
I thought I’d tie a few flies to finish an order if the weather turned rainy. Well, it’s been too nice. Sunshine…77 to 86 degrees every day. Can’t complain.
But should I tie a few flies? Yup!
I brought materials for a couple flies I always have in my fly box.
Oh, and my favorite searching lake fly…
So that’s the plan at least. We’ll see how it is tying flies in Paradise. I’ve got a few days remaining.
