  2. Sorry about the picture quality. I'll play with my camera a bit more after I make a mount for it at the bench. Next time hopefully they'll be better quality.

    The flies are on the way back Tight Loops.


  3. Picture quality was fine for me, Chris! Thanks much for getting them up there!

  4. Tight Loops,

    Those are some beautiful flies. Wish I had some to share but just getting into summer fishing.

    Thanks for sharing.
