    Now I'm depressed. That fly is nothing short of amazing. And yes it's big enough, it's the size of my god damn head.:rofl:

    Thanks AbsoluteHog.. To put things in perspective the fly is 45mm long. The stoneflies we have here are that size and they're hatching now, so later. I do tie it in a 30mm size in orange, yellow, black and tan.

    Well, I probably won't have mine out until tomorrow now. I was supposed to have a few hours last night to wrap things up but that got blown out of the water. I only have 2 to go and should be able to wrap them up tonight.

    I don't have your address...

    Hey guys... TOugh news.
    I have to take off for a few weeks next week, and since I have some and others are in transit and some have yet to be sent, I wont be able to get them out before I go. So..... I should be back around the 20th and I'll get them out soon after that.
    Hope no one was counting on them. But I guess that's the way these things go sometimes.

    AWWWW #@!*&!!!
    Still don't have all of them. SOuthpaw's flies were lost and James has a new baby. Both were going to try to tie some up and get them here this week. I want to send them out this weekend. If they haven't gotten them done this week I might move along anyhow.

    Sloan,

    If you don't get those flies just send out what you have just keep the extra's. Any other input?
