How many here tie flies?
I am getting ready to tie bass jigs, and mold jig heads.

I don't have the patience nor the eyesight to tie my own flies. But I did buy one of those spinner lure kits from Amazon. It's really cool to MAKE your own lure! Here's the link to the kit:

I don't tie dry flies but I do tie nymphs, hare's ears and stone fly nymphs.

Me. A lot. I just delivered a bunch to the local sporting goods store for him to sell.

I haven't tied bass flies in 20 years, but would love to see pics.

I used to tie a lot of jigs when I was heavy into walleye fishing. Haven't tied any in years though.

I tie almost all of my trout flies as long as they are size #18 or larger. I find it to be a relaxing hobby, and necessary due to my long history of decorating the stream-side brush with them. I buy the more complicated patterns of the #18 flies and all of the smaller ones from much more talented fellows.

I tie some once and a while but I am not all that great at it either. I tie mostly streamers for landlocked salmon and trout as well as a few nymphs..
