  5. YES!!! those look great speyflyfisher!! What book is that they are displayed on?
  6. HogWrangler- The book is Mike Radencich, Tying the Classic Salmon Fly.

  7. I had a vice blowout last weekend so a new cam is on order. I might be one week overdue on this one.
  8. No problem Obiwan, I've seen your ties and they are worth the wait! For those of you mailing out your flies - Speyflyfisher pointed out to me that I didn't include my zip code, it's 98125.
  9. I'm still working on mine, but I'll get them out on time. I'm excited to see what everyone has come up with.
  10. I finally decided which pattern I`m tying .

    I went with a variation of Bob York`s Kispiox Bright .

    Hook ; Partridge Salar Gold #3
    Tag ; Silver Holographic Tinsel
    Tail ; Golden Pheasant Tippets dyed red
    Body ; Purple Dazzle Dub
    Rib ; Large oval silver tinsel
    Hackle ; Orange saddle
    Wing ; White goat body hair , with a few strands of yellow pb as a topping
    Thread ; Purple Uni

    They`ll be ready for shipment on Monday .
  11. I'm running behind. I ran out of GP tippet, hopefully I can make it to the shop tomorrow and get them in the mail in time.
  12. No problem, Obiwan looks like he's going to be a bit late on this one as well, so there's currently no rush. Speyflyfisher, I got your flies and they are fantastico!
  13. My flies went in the mail today . Hopefully , they won`t take too long to cross the border .
  14. I just got an additional two boxes of GREAT looking flies and my swap board is filling up! Eric's ET Muddlers and Christian's Bennett's Halos have arrived, both awesome ties! I am looking forward to getting all the flies, but there's no rush.
  15. Mine went in the mail today, I would think you will see them Monday.

  16. Flies are finally in the mail. I'm sorry for the delay.

  17. Mine too and I am also sorry for the delay. I only tied 11 and there is a little extra for the swap master.
  18. I got RDL's and Steve S's Flies yesterday so there's only three spots left until I can get these bad boys back out to you guys!
  19. Mine are in the mail. I tied 12 and put in another extra that is slightly different for you Nick.
  20. Alright, here's how I'm going to determine the "best of show" pattern - I'll choose three finalists and then it's going to be put to a popular decision via a poll on the main forum. All three finalists will get something, but the winner gets all the marbles.
