Introduced him to a few tyers CAPT RAY. BOB MEED, PAGE, STEVE, CHARLIE an a few outhers. I missed ARMAND, SWAPPED a few flys and had a great time meeting old friends, spent a few buck on some wooden fly boxes. here's my little friend he's a BRAZIL, LONG HAIR, TRANCHLER. I call him Terry.
The hardest part to tyin,  was the DUBBING the thread.used 3 packs brown on the body an legs, an then combing it out took a bunch of time.  did not put eyes on him , but still came out cool. GOOD LUCK GOOD TYIN !

Bo ... did you go to the Richmond Fishing Expo?  Wife's here, so I didn't.

Figures, I'd be this close to a fishing show, and still not go to it.
