The Beer Tie



We tie a few flies
And tilt a few ryes
And tell a few lies
Though not always, you see, in that order

And it occurs to me
That there’s more hair see
On the table than on the north border

But what better way
Than to finish the day
At the vise/vice (take your pick) with good friends

Another pitcher, boys?

I need to start going there more often so I don't have to buy so many materials.

Great poem and photos, Mike. I love our club's beer ties (tpfr.org), but I think we skew younger. Or at least the bald guys wear hats!

You realize, Kevin, that savings from tying your own flies is the bigfoot of fly fishing.

I'm glad, BT. It makes me smile too.

GCS, seems the younger guys were not present this particular evening. But hats do seem a good idea, if for nothing more than to cut the glare.
