    Kind of hard to fit this one in the camera.
    Looking forward to fishing sand eel/lance. Tying up a bunch in different lengths.

    Hey Jack for some reason I can't see the photo attached, I'm looking for a sand eel pattern suitable for a beginner.

    Jack,

    I think it would be awesome if you did a little flatwing tying demonstration/workshop. I'd buy you beer and dinner for that!

    I'll make you as many of those as you want! A single batch usually produces 10-12.

    Jack,

    You go saddles or capes for most of your ties?

    Jon,
    Either. If I have a saddle that fits I will use it and save the "good stuff" on the capes for maybe bigger or special flies.

    That was on another fly, I think. A Mini-Ceiver. Yes? Or maybe in the fly tying tool photo?? Just used as a size comparison.[/quote]
    Gene, we really need to find a hobby for you. W A Y too much time on your hands. Have you ever tried cartoons?:D
    By the way, I like your toons in the NW Fly Fishing mag. Always look forward to them.

    Thanks,
    I'm gonna try to tie some tonight.
    Jack, Gary, not that a guy needs two dinners but I would really like to learn to tie flat wings as well
