    Actually, I'm going to start them today. Hopefully get them done tonight. If not, will have them done tomorrow. Think I may do one of my crawdad's (if you can call it that lol).

    Mine are going out this afternoon as well, Stu. I hope everyone enjoys them, for they give me great success when using them. Now if I can get over the hump and actually bring my first steelhead to hand then I'll be complete...LOL!!!

    What all does everyone put on the toe tag? Fly name and dresser? Recipe?

    that about covers it trevor, but personally i don't see the purpose of a toe tag since i have always posted recipes once the photo is put in the forum.

    Once the photos are taken and submitted into the gallery you can click on your fly and type in the recipe, just like adding a comment to a picture or post

    A nice set of Georgia Peach speys from Trevor and some very spiffy golden stone nymphs from Scott Behn.

    OK guys, my flies went out today. :thumb: I have never tied these before and ended up tying lots of different sizes with various materials before deceiding on which one to go with. I ended up using a deer hair wing instead of squirrel tail. The deer hair was more challanging to tie in but I like the way it adds a little more body to the fly. I also added some topping feathers for a little twist. Hope you all enjoy them, I think the fish will like them. :confused: I did the best I could do with my limited tying skills and can't wait to see some of these patterns so I can make an attempt to tie some of them.

    Mine are all packaged and were supposed to go in the mail today, but my trusty assistant decided to play all day instead... ;)

    So, tomorrow, you should get 'em Tuesday or Wednesday.

    Mine will be in the mail on Tuesday. Finally back to work. The heavy labor and 10 hour days have had me wiped out at night. So am catching up on backorders and flyswap flies this weekend (was a total veg last weekend after first week back). Will be done and mailed.
