Dryflie here with your weekly fly-tying tip. Most of you tie in the winter, I tie in June when my back's against the wall. I've learned many tricks over the years but this one is all about production. Go into your tying room or to your tying desk with one glass of wine or one drink, set your target (like a 10 or a dozen ) and no refills till you hit it. It's amazing how your speed will increase.

Good tip, but won't work for me.
My tying goes much better when I have a beer at arm's length. Finish a process, tilt it back, and so on. Four beers is my limit.
