Maybe I'd better talk to her, then. Bypass the old man.

I'd dispute that if it weren't for all the photographic proof to back it up....

Now you've done it! One should never ask macrabbit for constructive criticism. It's like wiping your butt with an iron hoop. There is no end to it. Sorry. Couldn't help myself.

Fortunately for him, he hasn't yet asked for criticism. For all we know, he might accept my stuff and then skip the country. It wouldn't be the first time.

But, yeah. I might have another sucker pupil to nag coach. Heh, heh.
(Don't set the drag too tight, macrabbit. Easy does it. Reel him in slowly, now.)

Seriously, though, I have no criticism for perfection.

That's hilarious!

I've never had a sense of proportion in anything, much less fly tying, so this should be entertaining. A guy can pass a lot of mistakes off as "innovation" on anything but an Aztec.

You'll see. There's no 'sense of proportion' involved. If you can find the 1/2 and the 1 eye-length point (from the rear of the eye) and the rear of the shank (where the bend begins), all of the tie starts and proceeds without need for judgement. The darn thing is a cookie-cutter cinch. Even I can do it!

I'd get in on that one, but I'm 66 and probably won't live long enough to tie 20 Aztecs.

Hey, that's an idea! Maybe I should host a Swap and make the theme Aztecs! Who'd sign on?
