I like it when people post pics of their flies. This is a PIC of the Hi-Viz Parachute BWOs I tied for the swap. It is my first attempt at posting a PIC to this forum and my first attempt at photographing a fly I tied, so if it is not discernable then I am sorry and I have a crummy camera, but, the flies did go into the mail on monday.

The Royal Trudes have been mailed. Here is a picture of one I tied for the swap. We are still working on getting the photos to come out clearer.

 

I haven’t been tying for awhile and just recently started tying more. I tie for my wife and myself and don’t compare flies with others all that often. The fish don’t seem to care. But that doesn’t improve my tying skills and in fact, may get me stuck in bad habits. So please feel free to offer any suggestions.

 

Jim

Mike: Addy Please.

 

I got carried away and tied about 20 of the little buggers so there will be a little extra some thing in your stocking. :D

Frank addy sent -

 

professori - I think I received your flies, (unless someone else is from Canada that I don't know about.) :dunno:

 

BTW - Those are some pretty darn nice flies we just had added to the mix, from Canada!! ;)

 

For those who haven't sent their flies yet, please do remember to sent your flies in a padded envelope and include a padded envelope for return. Thanks gang!!

I just re-read your post. (Guys, this is one VERY funny man!!) :blink:

 

Actually, California DFG stocks some pretty hardy little buggers! Most cities have small lakes that allow for fishing. I usually fish Laguna Niguel Lake, NOT stocked by DFG but privately stocked by a consession that hauls them in from Mammoth Lakes, CA and Utah. Also, when we have a good year for rain, Trabuco Creek gets stocked and 1/2 the challenge is getting back through the brush to get to the creek. It's one of the most challenging areas to fish that I've ever encountered!! If you don't have a four-wheel drive vehicle, I wouldn't recommend trying it! :o

But, hey thanks for asking!!!! ;)

WHOA NELLY!!!!!

 

I just realized that you have me on your swap even though I was actually explaining that I was too busy with other swaps! Luckily I was just checking up on the progress of this swap and saw my name there!

 

I am happy to oblige, however, with a streamer pattern. If I get on it tonight and send them in ASAP, I can still make if for the deadline. I will tie streamers because the rivers here are flooding and they seem to be the only thing anyone can catch fish with.

WOW, sorry about the mix up! AND ... Thanks for offering to still participate in the swap!! We've got a nice collection going and I think you'll enjoy the flies that are in the mix thus far! I see a few of those being real nice to try on steam fishing steelhead!! :yahoo:
