    Kent...

    Got your PM and really appreciate you stretching the rules for me. I'm leaning towards Preston's Cutthroat Spider as depicted in Les Johnson's book, but can tie something more troutish if appropriate.

    Sorry Mike - yes I got them Wednesday. Nicely tied and good-looking. They weren't toe-tagged though. What's the name of the pattern?

    I also got Banzai's beautiful Puget Bugs in today's mail.

    I've got ten tied up that seem good enough to send. With a little effort in the next couple of days I should be finished and have mine on the way. Sounds as if they'll be in some fancy company - don't look too close at mine, Kent! ;)
