Congrats redkid! You tied a great fly! I held that flyrod in my hands and your going to love it! Enjoy!

Chris that skeeter was awesome. I had to vote for you!

Thanks eveyone!!

Thanks darrin it was fun to tie!

Thanks Graham!

These three categories are my favorite! My itsy bitsy stone didn't come out as good as I hoped. But for a first try I was happy with it. My dragonfly, I had a hard time sending in for the contest, because it came out better than I thought! My bentflyrod fly was just creativity let loose!

I would like to thank my parent who stood behind me all the way! And I would like to thank my children for going hungry so many nights while I sat and stared at my vice! And I can't forget my kindergarden teacher for teaching me that glue was for glueing not eating! Oh and I almost forgot the...............................
