Opening day of trout season, in many parts of the West, is the last Saturday in April. This year it is April 30.
 
Tie 12 of any trout fly, any size, any style.
 
Usual rules apply; stamped self addressed envelope or funds to cover postage, toe tags, mail before due date.
 
Open to first 12 with, "I'm in".
 
Due date April 8th That way I can get them back to you for your own opener.
 
Over the last 6 years we have had a selection to fit just about any fly fishing situation.
