Only two spots left, who's next?

Hi Bob,

 

I'll take the last spot, if it's still available.

 

Thanks,

Bryon

There is no pink requirement, just normal pattern recipes.  I will be tying 14 Sparkle Pink Wooly Buggers for their hats or vests.

Great flies and great pics as usual FT, but now some of us have to go back to the bench and replace what we were going to send after seeing yours. You should have turned one of those  Royal Wullfs sideways to him in all his glory.

I was thinking the same Vic!
