I've got the bug I guess. I tie everyday pretty much. Fun cheap hobby and it pays off sometimes

I tie flies, but tie one or two of one pattern, then switch. And then it takes me days (or longer if I need to reorder) to organize and get the materials together for the next pattern LOL. I've gone through 5 different crab patterns so far, 4 different mole crabs, an "easy crab" (calico type) crab pattern, next going to tie a few of skok's pheasant flounder as a baby flounder pattern, then another skok green crab (very impressionistic) pattern and then move onto small baitfish (e.g. surf candy's)

I have also been busy with a new past time. It helps me keep my sanity (what little I have left) during these cold, cold times. Just started this season. Probably take me two years to try them all out.

Rob, I bought a few colors of powder paint from jannsnetcraft.com (they sell everything you would need) used some straight out of the jar and mixed a few custom colors. On some of the two tones I used a bit of spray paint which works pretty well. Just use your imagination and hope the Bass and Fluke have the same likings that you have.
