I'm in again thanks for the heads up bro

"Peace is that brief glorious moment in history when everybody stands around reloading".--Thomas Jefferson

 

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Thanks for your interest  djtrout and BattenkillBum , but the last spot is taken.  I will keep you in mind if someone should have to drop out.  You can always donate to CRF through their website: http://castingforrecovery.org/

Just to clarify a few things, you've given guidelines for two flies of each category which comes to 10. Am I missing something or should we just pick a couple of the categories to tie an extra in? Also, my hook supply in some categories is in bad need of updating so I ended tying a bugger on a 4 and a 10. Makes a nice size differential of very usable flies. Will this work okay? Hook sizes from various companies have varied a ridiculous amount of late so it's hard to keep everyone's the same anyway by just going by #. 

 

The sizes you're using are larger than most of us have been in the habit of tying so it actually makes it easier to get a decent looking fly for the guys.

Any combination of the suggested patterns and sizes is fine.  The five patterns are those requested by CFR.  In the past some tyers have done three each of four patterns.  These women are all first time fly fishers so the larger sizes make it easier for them to learn to see the fly.

Silly question B,

 

Is it best if we provide flies to fit all categories?

Perfect!  The pink is fine.  That is a great selection for a retreat.

If possible, but since this is a donation, I let you decide what you want to tie.  By the way, Dave, your mail box is full.  If you need my address you will have to clean it out a little.
