    OK, maybe the "no sweat" comment about 11 highlanders was bit premature...:)

    9 down, 2 to go. Should knock the last two out this weeked.

    I can hardly wait to see the output...obi you should post a pic of the final collection before distribution. Should be quite a pile of flies!

    A dozen flies are in the mail. The extra is for the swapmeister, thanks Robert. A fishing pattern having the colors of Shewey's spawning purple.

    Regards,

    With all the soccer games I'm a tad behind the power curve. Will be a couple of days yet before I'm done.

    Size 2 Green Butt Silver Hiltons...Just nailed a steelhead on the Klickitat a couple of weeks ago with this fly.

    My camera isn't the best (my wife has our good camera with her in Omaha) but I tried anyways.

    This just in, its the top of the fifth the Sox are up by one and I am staring at great ties by Brian Thomas and Daryn Brown. Great ties by both and let them shed hope for a game 6!!!

    Christian since your ties are the hot pattern then I will make sure I use yours on the Stilly first.

    Got mine sent on Saturday Bob, Still can't get the head size down, should be bullet proof with epoxy heads. The pictures will be superb though since I got a whole new desktop puter to replace my ten year old one. Wow, 320 gigs compared to 13 gigs.
