    I think I am going to tie some sort of foam body; maybe a Fat Albert, ant, or beetle pattern. To make up for my lapse last month I will be tying either a Baetis or Caddis pattern for the current/near future Yakima hatches.

    Most likely a foam beatle of some sort. Or maybe a moth pattern not sure yet.

    Let's stay with nine. Still waiting to hear from one of the laate guys. If it's less than that, just means more bonus flies in the last month.

    Looks like Ned is going for the over-achiever award for the month. Way to go, Ned! I'm surprised no-one is doing Lady Bugs. Hmmmm. Later,

    Finished mine last night. I will ship them today. I learned a lot on spinning hair, so I am glad with my choice. I was unable to get eyes to work, so they are blind. I don't think the fish will notice.

    Damn...While mine have been in the pasenger seat of my car for five days, I didn't get them in the mail due to a busy work schedule. Once in my life I wanted to be first!

    Oh well, I was born two weeks late and nothing much has changed:confused:

    Waitin for the creeks to open,

    Anyfish, those are too cool. Yup, your flies arrived today (go ahead, thumb your nose at Ned and give him a neener, neener) and are first in for the month. Looking good, buddy.

    Glad to here they made it. I had never spun that much hair, so it was a learning experience. One big lesson I learned was to be careful not to cut to deep when trimming. It is not good to cut through your fly and have it all fall apart before your eyes. Time to start on April flies.

    Oh Man! Talk about sucking up to the swapmeister! Great job Road! I don't mind early flies at all.

    Anyfish, what do you use to trrim the deer hair? VEE picked up one of those men's mustache and beard trimmers from Wally World that run on batteries. Works great for trimming deer hair if you don't mind the buzzing.

    Not a bad idea on the hair trimmer. I will have to give one a shot. I have been using double edge razor blades.

    Awright Mark, looking forward to them.

    Anyfish, the double edge blades work pretty well, but VEE has better control with the trimmer. I hate spinning deer hair, so I have very little first hand knowledge.
