Not really, I'm gear slut. I go into tackle shops to chat up the guys working there and pick up tips, but I always feel that I should buy something for taking up their time. There are only so many pontoon boats, waders and rods you can buy, so I usually end up walking out with 10 or twenty bucks worth of stuff I just gotta have. I'm lucky enough to have an understanding wife and a room I can devote to my passion. As for learning to tie, the way I started out was this: Every issue of BC Outdoors that came out in the 80's and 90's had a fly that was tied on the fly tyer's section. I went out each month and bought the materials listed for that fly and spent a month tying that same fly. As I got a little more proficient, I would check out other magazines and try a couple of more flies before the next issue came out. Over a bit of time my stock of materials just expanded. I just like it up where I can see it, it makes tying a lot easier when I don't have to search through a bunch of bins (which I did before my son moved out.). I still have to do some looking tho-the drawers in the desk hold all my fur, chenille, necks, capes and bird skins, etc.
