Eye Trouble
I've begun to have trouble seeing my flies whilst I'm tying them. I have a magnifying glass but it just isn't helping as much. I'm afraid at my age, I may have tied my last fly. What's the highest magnifying glass I can get?

Instead of looking for a higher magnifying glass, just stop tying flies if you can't see well enough. Using higher magnification would deteriorate your eyesight faster.

Sigh....You're probably right. I've tied my own flies for years now. I love doing it. It's more a hobby now for down time rather than a way to catch fish. I'll have to talk to the wife now. :eek:

Having eye trouble is indeed a problem. Having difficulty tying flies can be solved by having someone do it for you. Having done that I think you now can ejoy your angling. You ever said that no eyes, no see glory.
