    Those are the WORSE ties I've ever seen. You need to send them to me so I can properly fish..........er.........dispose of them. ;)

    Beautiful work.

    I'm afraid I can't really say until I'm fishing, er, I mean holding them in hand to really look them over. Really well done.

    No, just two sizes - a #1 about 2 1/4" long, and #2, 2" long. I guess a number three is planned. Gamakatsu makes them for him to his specs. Nice low slope on the eye and slim eye return.

    Great ties Michael. The wing set looks really really nice.

    Couldn't help it. I'd fish the heron on pinks and silvers.
