My flies went in the mail today...blue moon tubes. I threw in a low water something for your troubles.
Big Tuna - Your tubes are looking good and here!
Only three sets - IN
About 3 weeks to go!
fifteen done Don, couple more to go for you and on the way on Tues.
Your flies are always special, can't wait to see them.
Hey Don. Just sent out my flies. Let me know when they arrive. For anyone interested heres the pattern
Tail- golden pheasant firetip rump feather
body- DARK olive seal fur
rib- medium oval copper tinsel
Hackle- barred orange neck hackle
Wing-offwhite arctic fox tail and two jungle cock eyes
I like to call this one dark daze. I use it on dark days and in the mornings and evenings as well as a follow up fly for an interested steely. I tied em on a Partridge CS10/1 size 2. Wasnt sure of everyones local laws so left the barbs unpinched so unless you want to get pinched remember to flatten or file. All flies look great so far, looking forward to seeing the whole group. Let me know if you have any luck! Kevin

(2) Natural teal flank feather
I'll post a photo here or in my gallery later tonight.
I should have mine done and in the mail by Saturday or Tuesday. I tied up a half a dozen today then I realized I forgot the tag :beathead: I guess those will go in my box.
I always find its a lot easier to put the flies in and the tags in separately and let the meister sort it out. LOL:beer1: Daryle:beer1: :beer1:
Better take a min and keep evryone posted.
Flies here for:
Think I'll have some time this weekend to get some pictures, we have some real fish getters on this one! :beer2:
What is the total amount we have to tie now?
OK, I've got 11 done and ran out of cactus chenille. Hopefully I can make it to the store today and finish them up tonight then find a container they will fit in and send them off... Purple intruders tied on 55mm double waddingtons, should be tasty...
Hey Guys got mine done! Will be sending them out shortly! GP style!
Nice job rick!
OK, just dropped mine in the mail, got back to my desk and realized that the toe tags hadn't made it onto any of the flies, so... The big purple intruders are mine.
Mailed out today! Let me know when they arrive! :beer2:
