More stuff

Post by ForumGhillie » Thu Feb 28, 2019 5:43 pm

I some how got volunteered to do this TU Spring project, due in April. When in town today running errands I went to Hobby Lobby to get some clear glass beads to mount fly patterns for my TU project. I spotted in one isle a package colored wire in 26 gauge ($7.99) which made me quiver like a trout. Plus, a big copper wire spool in 32 gauge for $1.99. Of course, I could not resist buying them.

I also spotted some clear medium size plastic containers which will be ideal for storing dubbing from clipping hare's ear mask, etc. A package of six clear plastic containers for $2.99. Hey, this beats using the old 35mm black film containers.

Needless to say I went in for a few things and came out with more stuff. I did manage get some strange looks from the little old ladies who must shop there frequently. I was glad I wasn't shopping with narcodog or we probably would have been thrown out. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Zen,

I never go to Hobby Lobby, so I was pleasantly surprised.

our tying club in Houston made regular outings to Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's, and the Dollar Store... we alway found inexpensive subs for high dollar fly shop stuff... not suggesting we stop supporting our local fly shops...but some stuff just makes sense.

Maybe when I can't fly fishing or grouse hunt anymore and I am sitting in a rocker reading and drinking whiskey I will take up crafting.

Unlike some of the retired leakers on the Flymph Forum (I will not mention any names) I still work for a living and no time for crafts and spending all day posting on Social Media.

"leakers".... are you taking a shot at those who have partially functioning bladders? Tying display flies could be similar to crafting. I try to tie that well.

Oh my gosh guys....you are hilarious! Keep it coming!
Hobby Lobby is a favorite stop on the crafting trail of my youngest daughter Erica! It is kind of a neat place and you are right....you walk out with more treasures than you actually went in there for! Ah, effective retailing!
