Recommended Posts

All flies (except jvmills) went out today.  Check your PM's for your tracking numbers.

jvmills, please send me a PM with your mailing address so I can get you your flies.

I think you will all see some nice ties as well as a bonus gift courtesy of dogfacedoc!

I hate to use curse words on this forum, but considering the great set of flies I just received in the mail, I can't hold back.  Holy S**t, they are sweeeeeeeet!  Thanks to all who took part.   Special thanks to @WWKimba for hosting, the extra flies (a Gimp!) and extra material, and thanks to @dogfacedoc for a beautiful patch of coastal deer hair.  

Wow, can't wait to post up the photos of these great ties.  

I also received a couple of spools of silk thread I ordered earlier this week, its like Christmas in February!

Thanks niveker, I thought these were a great bunch as well.  I started this series of swaps because I knew with COVID those newer tyers WOULDN'T get a chance to take an in-person course.  So I thought that this MIGHT help and it's gone well past my wildest dreams - THANK GOD the students were so good because we ALL know the instructor was more than a little suspect!

Now put your 50 cents in the swear jar! :)

NOW it's 50 cents!  The cost of materials has gone up due to COVID!

Nice picture and thanks for taking it!  Love how your Genesee Jewel is right above my Light Cahill!  One might wonder if they are related!

You're welcome for the extras! when you tie some flies with it tag me so I can see!

Love to but with my camera is an auto focus and DOES NOT focus on flies/close-up items at all!  Happy to send a picture of the fish I catch with them though!  That is if THEY are big enough for my camera!!
