Will, Great job. I'm with day5 on this one.

 

 

Guys let me say something here. Will being a good friend, I know for a fact he spends hours upon hours doing this FTOTY for everyone. Taking pics, PS them all, reposting them, takes him a month of just working on these pics for the contest. And he's too nice of a guy to respond the things like this.... So lets not get all anal and complain about this fly not belonging here or there. Lets just be appreciative that Will dedicated a HUGE part of his time to doing this for all of us alright?

Great job to everyone who entered, especially the rookies! There are a few flies in this year's contest that I'll definitely be adding to my fly boxes this season :headbang:

Steve it is in no way Wills fault. I do not blame him a bit. It is the person who submitted the fly and thought they could send in an artistic realistic fly and win a category that it doesn't belong in. It belongs in the realistic category. But I do not blame Will one bit he is just doing what the contestant asked. Will Does a fantastic job. That is obvious.

There's a fly in the trout nymph category that I thought was by far a better realistic than any of the flies in the realistic category. That said, I don't think there were any lines crossed by putting that fly in a non-realistic category. Who's to say when a fly is too realistic to be considered a normal fishable fly? It's really a judgment call for each individual voter to make- which is what's so cool about this contest- and what makes it so unpredictable. Anyone who has participated in or followed this contest should know that if you wanna win, you better bring your A game. Why punish a tier by not voting for his/her fly for doing just that?

All I can say is that it took a coin flip or eeni-meeni-minee-moe to make a decision in a lot of the categories. Wonderful craftsmanship and a wealth of fishing knowledge. And Will, a superb job of presentation. A hearty congratulations to all. Makes me proud to be a member of the forum.

Good Day,

 

Will, how can we thank you enough! Another great year of voting! Lots of good flies and then those that looked great small, until they were enlarged. Guys, as a veteran of several international fly tying competitions you have got to pay attention to proportion, details and your heads! I can't tell you the numbe of other wise cool flies I did not vote for for these reasons. Please take the extra five minutes...
