I have received some questions about the make up of the fly box you are to submit.  Please read the first post, the five patterns  and sizes listed or those recommended by CFR.  You may tie any combination of these patterns that adds up to 12.  It is OK to make some personal variation to the pattern, such as, using pink for the Post as DavidR did.  Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to donate to this project.  Tight Lines to all, Bob

Bob mine will be mailed out Monday when I get back home from vacation

"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
