Some Blobs were found attacking my mailbox right after I came back from the post sending my flies to your swap!  Nice ties Dr. D!

The blob is proof stocked trout are released into wild waters with no concept of what food is. If you tie it in brown or tan you can say it represents hatchery pellets but if you tie in the popular orange or bright red what does that represent? Any person who says they'd never fish a blob fly better not be caught with mop flies in their box.

Who knows why fish bite a blob.  I think they see a bright thing go by and hit it.

Hatchery trout will adapt to the natural food as they are deprived of hatchery food. The trout in the Hiwassee River soon learn to eat what is present in the water. When the blue back herring die off about this time, they look like footballs with fins.

Flies dropped in the mail today - the weather got in the way on Tuesday.  I think that you'll like the ties this time around - a nice variety.  Your PO tacking # are being PM'd to you now.  BTW, a couple of your envelopes already had tracking number BUT my PO had to put a new one on your envelopes.
