  20. On my blog ? (http://www.flytyingforum.com/blog/awmiller/index.php?) I am posting up my flies in hopes of learning what they are!! A good friend of mine knew that I was getting into fly fishing and comes to my house one day... he walks up to my desk and throws a package on it.... When I opened it up there were loads and loads of flies!!! He walks away and says, "happy fishing!!". This is wonderful but I don't have a clue as to what these are or where they are best used, etc., etc., etc.... So in my blog I'm posting up these flies so that anyone can give their inputs in order to help me get these flies in order. All inputs will be greatly appreciated!!! Regards.... Alan Visit my blog?
