Yeah Bob, realized after I told you I'd double up I already sent a package. Sent another a couple of days ago so you should get another set in near future. Have a few extra in there so you can decide which fit bill for their use the best.

I will finish tonight just have the buggers left to tie, will mail em out in the morning. Should I toe tag these flies? It is really no trouble to do it but seems that as you are putting these in boxes it might be be better to leave the tags out.

I tied :

3 x pink hi-viz para adams # 12 

2 x Elk hair Yellow Humpy #10

3 x Guide's choice hares ear #10 and #12

2 x Para hoppers #10

2 x Black wooly buggers #8 

 

I really think this is a great cause as this disease affects us all at some level. Let me know if you could use another set of flies, I would be happy to do another.
