    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.

    THE RECIPE FOR THE IZZY NYMPH IS THE SAME AS A GRHE, JUST USE IZZY HAIR. I USED SOME GREEN HACKLE FIBERS FOR THE TAIL AND WINGS N THINGS FOR THE WING CASE.

    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.

    Thanks Dinker, I was looking at the gallery, but not in the best location. Nice looking stuff. Maybe I should start a newbie fly tyer swap...send a ball of crap or birdsnest with a hook!
