On the original post ... each tier gets 12 flies from the main and 3 wild card flies.

Mine are on their way. I put the three extras on three of the foam toe tags with the everyone's fly. I assume you will mix them up so we randomly get 3 extras, 1 from 3 different tyers mixed in.

Yes that's correct vicrider, I try to balance it out if some of the wild cards are fancier then others to make it even.

Norm, just tip us off to one thing. Do you wrap your hackle front to back and wire up or do you wrap from back to front with wire....without wire? Also, do you measure the distance between each wrap of hackle with a slide rule?

 

 

....For you young guys Norm and I know what a slide rule is really for. Google it on your cell phone/calculator. It's been so long since I went to school I trained on an abacus.
