    I wish I was looking at finals... I still have 6 weeks left... All my friends at other schools are done in a week or two, but UW gets out way later. Then again we don't start until the last week of september, so oh well. But, I will be spending some quality vise time this week I think.

    no worries... still have about 10 days until it would be optimal to have them shipped out.
    Hope you guys are all getting them done.
    I have Trevors and they look really good.

    Finally got mine in the mail today. They are supposed to be for "Pinks" but should work on searuns. From what I've heard (no first hand experience yet) they will hit most anything moving if they are aggressive. Thanks for setting this up David.

    Just finished my tying marathon, and they are all done. I will have them mailed tomorrow morning. I did some chartreuse clousers and a psuedo-popper type thing I have been experimenting with. I figure if more people try it I can get a feel for how it works...heheh. It'll fish though. :thumb:


    Edited to add - They're on their way, I dropped 'em in the box this mornin'

    Hey Dave - I have not exprerimented with anything other than different types of 5 min epoxies. I like the Z-poxy - have always had good luck with it - stays free flowing for a long time after opening, I like the 2 bottles instead of the plunger type dispenser. I keep my flies out of the sun so they don't yellow too quickly. I prefer 5 min so I can get the head shaped the way I like it....versus using a slower dry time epoxy and drying wheel.

    There was another product out there - maybe by Loon? supposed to be as hard as epoxy.

    Looking forward to the flies!

    got Surfs and mr trouts today.... Both look awesome... still waiting on 2 more...

    Got yours too Dane... :thumb:

    Surf.... I screwwed up and asked for 14 flies which means everyone will get back couple of their own patterns... Therefore you dont need to send me the extra fly.
    And thank you very much for that monster fly... looks like it would be great for striped bass or fish of that nature.

    Ok the flies went out today right after i picked up Bobs at the post office. I noticed that i left a couple with barbs on so please remove them prior to fishing.
    great work by everyone and thank you for participating. I am very sorry that it took this long to wrap up.
    Everyone of you is welcome to come fish SRCs with me this summer out on the canal or the areas around bainbridge.
