    Here are the pics of the "pets". I called the fly an "Anned Graceful Budder fly" to fit the names of the mammals fur that I used.

    Got the flies yesterday, great job everyone! I forgot to put a little tag on mine, oh well. They all look like very fishy flies.

    I will be chasing SRC on the salt this weekend, so not sure if these will work or not. But I will make it to some fresh water soon and give these a shot.
