Yep, picked up flies yesterday. They are a great bunch and thanx for the extra and card Bob.

 

Kind of funny but in the spirit of Christmas I see the PO clipped ya' an extra $.16 for your generous addition.

Just going thru the flies again and thinking how well they cover so many situations on the water. I don't know how many articles I've read saying Caddis are so imprinted on a trout's feeding circuits they'll take it whenever they have the chance.

 

Border Collies, where did you get the wing material for you fly? I assume it's a sheet you cut or have patterns for but it's a nice touch to a great little fly.

Ha, yeah. BBQ was Bob's idea, although he got no argument from me :-)

My flies arrived yesterday. Great set of flies. Bring on some sun and a hatch and away we go.

All flies have now reached their homes.  Happy holidays to everyone in this swap.  Hope to see you next Christmas.
