Fly Tyers

Why are fly tyers such odd folks? I think it must have to do with the constant exposure to lead wire, paint, glues, fumes etc. I don't think I've ever met a guy that tied a lot of flies that most people would consider "normal." The more the guy(or gal) ties flies, the more quirks they have. I know quite a few commercial fly tyers and one or 2 of them that have been doing it in excess of 20 years. They are probably the most eccentric people I know, but there's very few people I'd rather spend time with. (barring exceptional individuals like brazilian female volleyball players and the like.) Sharing a few beers with a fellow tyer and mulling over patterns is pretty close to heaven for a guy like me. :)
