Idaho RC's Parachute Adams are the first flies to arrive. Great set of flies.

I think I will try to do a sedgehog most likely in an olive/green waiting on hackle to get here or they will be trimmed out in hot pink or red grizzly as that's all I've got for dry Flys.

Stabgnid's flies came today, as always they are great ties.  Looking forward to using them.

Not long ... about 45 minutes.

That would require me hoping in my truckand driving them down there, not sure if Bob would appreciate a random stranger from the interwebs showing up at his door. Usps will probably send them to Nebraska who will send them to Georgia and then to LA.
