    I totally understand what youmean when you said..."Tired of buying materials at this point"

    Hell, I can barely afford to go to the shop, and before I know it I have two materials and a pack of eyes in my hand, and my 20 dollar bill disappears.

    hey man i think those madam x are gonna be great, they have a good round profile. the deer hair might give it a nice neutral buoyancy much like a natural has once waterlogged!

    Loren- Forgot to say that your box is looking nice.

    Dustin- I wrapped both of those with .30 lead and would say that they are light and medium weights. I was worried that the hair and berlin wool(yellow body) would considerably slow the sink rate, but they both sank super quick in the kitchen sink...but you know where these will be fished and I recon I need to make up some offerings in tungsten as well, as well as some hopper thangs in more of a greenish brownish color.

    Terry, it's an understanding that you always tie two of every thing, you know, so when you get a hot fly your buddy(ies) can share. Otherwise they are tempted to cut your line...

    Karl, I told you I was sorry for snipping your line and bogarting your hot fly. How long are you gonna try to make me feel guilty for wanting to get the skunk off?

    Thanks brotha. You can't tell, but half of the marabous are on tubes. I just need to tie some more of everything. I think they should catch a S/H..right?

    ..you just need to swim those as often as possible in front of as many fish as possible. High water, low water, clear or brown, rain or snow melt. FISH YOUR BALLS OFF!!

    Ed, the secret to fly fishing is there are no rules between fishing partners, just like love and war. That's why we feel the way we do to each other. I'd cut Terry's line as fast as I'd cut yours if there was only one of the hot flies. Its love, man.

    The skaopper has a few steps but it is not hard to tie if you see the quick video of scott howell tying you can see how the deer hair is stacked and trimmed and if you are asking about the pmd that is easy.
