How do you get the fly to stay still while tying it ? Does it hurt the fly ?
If your question is serious...
Fly tying is a euphemism, in saying "fly" we are talking about the lure used in a rig with a "fly" rod. the reason we call the lures flies, is because we want to fool the fish into thinking that they are flies, that we will even call them by such a name. A fly is typically tied with little more than a hook, thread, and feathers. If you are still interested, i would suggest checking out a book or googling "fly tying for beginners" or "fly fishing for beginners".

If you were kidding... good job! you got me!!
...either way we need a sarcasm font...
