Very nice stuff so far this month y'all.

Here's a PMD Mini merger tied on a Firehole #316 and a PMD cripple tied on a Fulling Mill 5050. Both size 18

Wow! Something I certainly have never seen before and I'll bet like minnows, there are many different varieties. I always admire your posted pics as well as your excellent tying. Thanks for sharing them all.

Flytire, time to put a Patriots avatar up. Recognized your tying but your avatar is unusual. Love the Salmon flies.

Don't blame you for dropping the red sox avatar. I wouldn't want anything to do with the red sox either, or the yankees for that matter.

 

 

GO RAYS!!!!!!!!!!...will see you in the playoffs.
