Thorn may have been on to something...

Writer James W. Hall's character Thorn ties flies for a living when he is not dealing with various mayhem and suchlike... I'm certainly looking forward to the new book "Silencer"...

Off hand I can get into the whole fly tying gig... I've always enjoyed tying flies and building lures and there is something about being at anchor, sitting in the cockpit listening to music, and letting the creative muse take hold. The idea of actually getting money for such an enjoyable task is just gravy!

Doing your own lures and tying flies is something of an natural reaction to the cruising lifestyle as there are very few lures and flies that are suited for the cruising experience. So let's face it, if you want to get serious about catching fish, getting creative is going to be part of the program and, if it can add a little bit to the cruising kitty, all the better...

Now if I can just avoid the mayhem and suchlike...
