    The main two hobbies for women are shopping and eating.

    With that title I really wasn’t sure I wanted to look. I was actually pretty sure I didn’t, I tried not to, but eventually my curiosity got the better of me.

    Uh oh... like Edwin Rist addiction?

    I listened to an AMAZING podcast this week about the natural history heist of the century... (This American Life #654, The Feather Heist)

    https://www.thisamericanlife.org/654/the-feather-heist

    Give this a listen... if you are a fly fisherman this is a great story. If you are into tying Salmon flies, you probably already know this story and I would appreciate hearing your thoughts on the ethical dilemma presented in the narrative.

    Default Ethical Dilemma???

    No dilemma (seems cut/dried to me). I've read/re-read the Feather Thief and am not sure there's a dilemma for most tyers. How many tyers actually tie the type of flies that require exotic, natural materials that are illegal to possess?? If you're looking to acquire those materials, whether there's a dilemma or not is up to the buyer. If you're into tying Atlantic Salmon flies and streamers or any pattern requiring those materials and already possess them, the only potential problem is will you get caught??

    I really like the skill involved in tying and the beauty of the final product. To me tying these patterns is an art form but I wouldn't fish them. So why tie 'em??
