Hi all, I just got back from Africa late last night. The trip was great.

 

Mike W, I did get your stuff and it's all very nice. Thank you very much. Now I am well armed for my up-coming trip to the upper NW (Spokane area) for bass and pan fish. Not sure what serious health issues you might be talking about. My health is fine even if my mind is not. Thanks for your concern though.

 

Also thanks to Bill Bailey, I am now well dubbed and waxed. Thanks

 

And to Ray Crawford, the stuff arrived in time for my trip, everything looks great. Thank you very much. Very sorry to hear about your Mom. My condolences.

Hey, Mr. Knapp! If you sent me some rabbit strips, a few size 4 hooks, and deer hair (or anything that can flare easily.) I'll whip up a few multi-hook saltwater flies. And by the way, did you fish in Africa? If so, then what fish did you catch? Welcome back!

Hi Mark,

I'm probably a day late and a dollar short on reading your post but if you have any Moose Body Hair I sure would appreciate a little piece. Ed

Thanks for the offer on the flies Tier, I enjoy tying so much, I wouldn't let you do it for me. I did fish in Africa for about 15 minutes, it was in a stock pond, I felt like it was just to appease me and everyone else in the two trucks were just waiting for me to get it out of my system so I just bagged it. Didn't get to actually fish.

Just got back from the Blade show in Atlanta, best show ever.

 

Also, a small mouth/blue gill trip in the Spokane area. Mike West, you're poppers were a huge success there, thanks a lot. The best combo. was a popper with a beaded San Juan Worm dropper.

 

We didn't catch anything huge but we got some smallies up to about a pound and some hand size blue gills. Pictures after I get a chance to go through them.

Do you still have deer hair? And Lynx would be awesome. I could give you wolf and fox fur in return. I'll send you pics if you are inrested.

I still have lots of deer hair, no lynx though. Stop by on your next trip to Fairbanks and you are welcomed to have some. I have lots of fox and wolf, thank you though.
