    when i shipped them i didnt have anything smaller than a twenty, so ill include ten bucks with the emergers, sorry for the delay. my spring break is in a couple weeks and i will probably get all emergers tied then (if not sooner) and shipped out fairly early.

    It's a weird little bug, kind of ugly but the fish seem to like them. Glad they got there today, I'm going to the OP next week and didn't want to worry about them getting to you on time. Now I have to find an emerger to tie.

    Cool! For those of you who haven't sent them yet, cut off is a 25th postmark or no MVP....

    Sent mine out tonight too Ned.

    These have been the trickiest flies i've tied in a while.
    They look like they might catch something (other than a tree).

    Great Richard! I hear you, I hadn't tied anything on an 18 this winter till this. One of these years I will need to get a magnifier....

    What do you guys think about changing next month from emergers to emergers/terrestrials?

    Or emergers/?.

    Emergers is a pretty small pool to pick from. Any thoughts?

    I have an emerger in mind to tie (in fact going to tie up a few for practice tonight), but I don't care what I get in return. All the flies so far have been awesome.

    I've been playing with classic hopper patterns recently. I'd be up for tying that instead of my planned PMD emerger.

    I can go either way. I'd rather tie hoppers but my emerger box needs some attention.

    i have already started on an emerger pattern but if other people want to tie up something different thats perfectly fine with me.

    Richard and Eric,

    Your flies are in today. Richard, I think yours might be my favorite dries so far.

    Eric, one problem. You tied nearly the same pattern as I did. What is the problem you ask? Your's are better.....
