    My digital camera pooped out today while fishing for SRC. So, I guess I will have to borrow one to take photos of our masterpieces!

    By the way, I have beached about 30 SRC on three different trips this week with at least 8 fish from 16-17 inches. Been awesome... A new fly I tie called the "Popsicle Stick". :)

    Sounds like you have the SRC dialed in:thumb:... my bean bag callibaetis emergers are in the mail. Send me a pm about the "Popsicle Stick" if you care to share. Always looking for a new pattern.

    Those biot bodied flies are the bee's knees man. I just started tying with biot and love it. I have friends that raise peacocks and peahens, so I get lots of feathers. Not to mention the hundreds of turkeys that roll through their yard each day.

    You are quite the character seanengman! Too funny. I bet you are a good fly fisherman. Those biot bodied flies are the "bee's knees" for sure.

    OK- Today I received GUZ808's nice little nymph pattern. These are the "Bee's Knees" as well!!! KEEP'UM COMING!!

    No, man, I'm not a good fly fisherman... I just wave my stick in the air and look good doing it.

    I know the deadline is not until March 22, but you guys might want to hurry up after you see Mike Wilson's "Bean Bag Callibaetis Emergers" I received in the mail tonite. They are superb and look deadly!! Now I need to know how/what Mike ties them. They are great and I bet fish great too. Thanks Mike. I'll send your extra cash back and thanks for the fly! I'll send you a "Popsicle Stick" also. :thumb: And, as seanengman says, "They're the bee's knees"!

    I finally found a good use for pantyhose....if you need some bean bags I have a billion. Let me know I will send you some to play with. I am not too sure what a bees knee looks like, but I will take it as a compliment.
