    Mumbles, I got the flies and they look great.

    Zach, looks like you are doing the money shrimp.

    You pulling my leg? Dominate? Hell I was just throwing some matching material colors into the mix for a different look. I look forward to a report with lots of fish porn with my flies sticking out of their chompers.

    Connor, if we can work it out I'm there. I can't wait to be outfished and totally schooled by the youger generations finest. Wherethehell is Rocky Ford anyway? I drove through Moses Lake twice, once to and once back from a three day Montana trip...my buddy's wedding and of course I fished a bit. I can only catch stupid fish though, got any of those in Moses Lake or Rocky Ford? I found some in MT and have found some over here.

    It's more towards ephrata. I can show you the way but you have to get to moses lake first! The trout at rocky ford are STUPID. very picky but stupid. I have lined the same fish 3 times while casting for a bigger one further up only to be rejected in all 3 casts. I turned toward the closer fish and hooked up on the first cast! give me a ring and I will always be ready to wet a line!

    Mumbles, I am not joking. That is a great pattern for right now! Most people are throwing stuff too big for these silvers now. Check out the Doc reports. I will put money on everyone is still using baitfish and big patterns. Those fish are feeding on euphasids, and amphipods. I have had two 100+ fish days using these flies in the last few weeks...

    Oh, you are talking about my fifteen second bonus shrimp pattern with the red marker striped back? After all the euphasiid reports or howeverthehellyouspellthat I whipped up a dozen of those in about 15 minutes the night before going on an SRC outing. I did not even remember to bring my own along that day. I thought you were talking about my larger main fly, the sexy maroon, maroon and maroon grizzley fly. Regardless, so long as you are catching, I'm happy to have been part of stretching your line.

    My tubes are tied, but I'm waiting for my softex to arrive to finish them. Should be in the mail well before the deadline.

    How did you get your tubes tied? I thought that process was for the misses after you had enough little ones. Softex in the mail? Flamables in the mail? There is a place that some on the shelf not far from your stomping grounds. All jokes aside, I look forward to your tube and all the other rezzie flies. Do you have next Friday free?

    Mumbles

    if anyone has softex on the shelf I sure as hell couldn't find it in 2 trips to poulsbo, one trip to port orchard, 3 trips to silverdale , and a trek to port angeles (not all just for the softex, but I had my eyes open). Most shops will ship softex via ups/fed-ex ground. As for the tube tying thing, lets just say that the boys are still intact, but there are a bunch of little swimmers on my tying table.

    Dude, I have some softex too, only one vat of it, but if your shippment is not due in soon let me know.

    Good to hear that your anatomy is not getting tied in knots. The sun is out, we should be fishing a previously frozen body of water.

    Read it, you suck. You and Ford Fenders are both off my Christmas Card list. Seriously though, great report, glad you got out. I'm so trapped inside and when I'm not it is so freaking dark outside.

    Zach, get your ass back to the Gig and get to tying. I've already sent in my two patterns and rumor has it that I tied the money shrimp. Now I want to see what all the fuss is surrounding yours. Seems like the vote is in and we all want to see the mysterious money shrimp. You can't disappoint us all can you? Your boy Connor H has already called BS...what is it gonna be man? I'm itching to get these so I can fish.
