    Hey guys, Its that time of year to start tying up big nasty flies. Im thinking 12 tiers including me, and make sure they are at my place by december 4th. that will give me time to seperate the flies and send them out of over the weekend. I think the only rules im going with is that the flies have to be something big, not traditionally little flies. so either something articulated like an intruder or marabou, or some big spey fly. and anybody that doesnt deliver theres in time will just be sent back. Ill post my address later but be sure to include return postage.

    Not sure what ill tie yet but either a whore house special or some type of intruder.

    Why not, count me in for an intruder pattern of "chicken" like proportions.

    The 'whore house special', love it aurthur! And thanks for the porn! That stuff will drive one crazy!! It just makes me want some steel that much more, which is a very dangerous thing. Kind of reminds me of the Warren Miller movie to kick off ski season, but for steelheaders :)

    Alright I'm in too. I recently saw Mike Kinney's video on how he ties the Skagit Minnow.
    I think I'll give that a try.

    I think I'll tie up some of Keen's Magic Series, probably the Sky version.
