Actually I have a sore wrist! You probably know as well as anyone...grippin a steering wheel for 10-12 hrs a day while having the pajeezuz has left me with arthritis in my wrists etc. (yup...I'm gettin old) and the repetitive action of doing these has left my left wrist feeling like it was smashed with a sledge hammer.....hopefully this will go away in a day or so....I gots mo flies to tie!! :roll:

It gets me in my neck and shoulders. But I have some damage there from my last job. I need to quit letting my ankles roll over when it's on cruise too. I'll be walking on them instead of my soles if I don't. Luckily I really don't drive but about 5-6 hours a day. The rest of it is in a warehouse. That's making my shoulders hurt though. The last flies I tied fell apart. I've not had much time lately.

As always Tom, you share beautiful flies that most of us only wish we could tie. I loved the color schemes. Thanks for sharing.
