    I have 3 beetles done so far. I've tied ones that work for me at Rocky Ford. I should be done in time to mail on Tuesday.

    dfl-- I don't think anyone knows that because they haven't seen them yet!! :)

    OK Beetlemania freaks, it's time to get them in the mail to me soon!! I still have 4 to tie up myself. I ended up doing a waterboatman (sorta cheated). If you "grease" it well, it will float....for a little while anyway! I have had luck with it with a short quick strip. I'll be watching my mail!!! As I stated before, I will attempt to take photos and post them. -Larry

    Is a toe-tag a fly? I only signed up for a beetle swap. Beetles are winging their way west as of 30 minutes ago.

    Toe tags today and probably S.A.S.E. tomorrow. geez.....

    I just got mine to Dry Fly Larry. I am excited to try these patterns. Some of the patterns look to good to use, if there is such a thing.
    Looks to good to use, never .

    PM address please, flies in the mail tomorrow morning. I wanted to retie a couple that were a little wonky. I also tested them in water and they float like a cork.

    I just received three (3) more packages in the mail today! They are all awesome. I got Richard Torres, Zens, and Kelvins. I think everyone will have fun with these! And, Kelvin, thanks for the big orange bug!!
