I Am Haunted By Streamers

  Streamer ideas haunt me.  They get in my head and drive me crazy until I get them out.  I’ve been know to get out of bed in the middle of the night, and sit at the vise.  I’ve found sketching them can help, but it can also make things worse.  I am a terrible drawer (even though my kids think I’m awesome).  I know the truth.  There is no way I’ m the only one who does this.  I’m not weird, right?  Right?

    I sketch as well! Helps me get my convoluted ideas out of my head and into some sort of design. Although I must say, your sketch seems much better then mine!

    the getting out of bed thing … indeed. I have found with the new smart phones one can sketch out a fly any where. and i do mean anywhere. the bathroom at work has produced thousands of beaded hopper legs and some of my best fly sketches!!

    Dude, I do the same thing with dries too. Worst part is when you get the idea a long ways away from your vise, or appropriate materials
