Well after all of this time I have finally gotten around to mounting the FTOTY flies in some very nice displays. These displays will be travelling with me to the Cincy fly fishing show next month and I hope to find the time to travel to other shows in the future. My hope is to show off not only the talent that we have on this site but also the unique diversity that can be found here. I have one more case to put the 2003 flies in and I hope to have that done in the next few days.

Here are some pics, as you can see there are alot of flies! All of the flies are in these displays except for some of the big pike and saltwater flies. I need to find another way to display them.

Will that's right on!!! Hopefully this will drum up even more support for the site and for the contest itself.

Would love to one day hit one of those big stateside shows but for now I'll just have to be there in spirit through my flies...hehe....I saw a few of mine in the boxes!

Real cool idea too.

I filled up two shopping carts late last night
The one was full of fishing gear, the other newcastle ale
The checkout-lady laughed and said 'You think you got enough'
And I said 'Yeah, You're probably right', and filled another two carts up
Gonna catch all the fish, Gonna drink all the beer, Gonna head outta town, We're not staying here
Might take all day, might take all year, Till we catch all the fish, Till we drink all the beer
