For me it would have to be my wife. This is such a beautiful, relaxing, creative way to spend a day, I'd just love to get her out there with me. To me, women are naturals for fly fishing. I don't know why more of them don't participate. Probably because, like my Kathy, someone's got to take care of things while Hubby flyfishes. With her artistic ability she'd be tying creations like Buddy's, Hatch's or Chevy Van's in no time. She would far surpass my clumsy ability as a tyer. She'd have to pack a lunch and a good book though because I know she'd never have the maniacal, mad-dog ferver I have for the sport.
