    Everything seems to be going well. I'm doing Van Klinken's Mighty Midge size 18 Peacock Herl and CDC. Damn they're tiny. Got 11 done.

    I'm providing a hillbilly version (my own design) inspired by the great RS2. The fly should be very effective cause I'm using a lucky rabbits foot!

    Done with the first 15 and ready to go. I'm trying to get done sooner as the last ones I was slow and rushed. I sure need to be tying more. but I want to be out fishing. Summer yet??? I'd go now as long as theres no freezing, we've had enough, that was for the old days.

    Okay! We're off to a killer start with Ansas. He mailed me his size 26 Rusty Dun Midge for all of us. I had to get my magnifying glass out to find them in his package! Very nice Ansas. Sorry you can't make the Face to Face, but we will meet sometime. I would love to see you orchard sometime. I'll keep your business card.

    Ok fellow Midge Tiers. I am planning on "posting photos" of these. I have been experimenting with my camera, and it seems fine that I have been able to produce a fairly decent photo. I will gladly take photos of the flies submitted by you. However, if you would like to take your own closeups and send (email) your favorite to me or bring a CD to the Face to Face, you are welcome. It shouldn't take me long to get these posted however. Just a thought... Some people (I think) don't like the picture of "their" fly taken by someone else and posted. Now I'm going to see how well I can snap a photo of Ansas's #26 midge and see how it turns out!! Mine are about completed.
