Picked mine up from the mail box this morning.  Bryon, thanks for hosting and thanks to all the tyers for a great bunch of flies.  Happy Thanksgiving to one and allbiggrin.png biggrin.png

Yep, they came in with a bunch of the Christmas package. Nice group of flies. Bob, my nephew who still hasn't caught a trout said he was fishing a lake in New Mexico and he said the trout were coming up and eating small brown bugs that looked like little moths. Wonder if those wouldn't work. Gave nephew some of my small trout spinners this year and a couple of bobb indicators. Didn't do him any good even though the spinners he had have caught a big bunch of fish in lakes and rivers over the years. Going to try to get him into a fly rod next year for sure.

Glad the fly sets are making their way to their destinations. :)


A note on the Bubblehead Charm (my contribution) -- it was originally tied as a slider for smallmouth bass in rivers, but I have discovered that it also works well as a "waking" mouse pattern for trout in rivers. Got one of my largest browns ever on one of them.
