    You can get Antelope from sportsmans warehouse I found some there today, but they had only one pack left. It was rediculous I went there to buy only for some more hooks and walked out $150 dollars poorer thanks to more tying materials.

    I cant believe people are not joining after seeing all of these.....and honestly....its 12 flies...if you tie 1/2 of one fly a day you will still make the deadline.

    what size hooks are those on? how do you want us to send them to you, i was looking at a Altoids tin but i don't think i want to sent 6 Altoids tins to you :D

    no i feel embarrassed your flies rock, ive got a little lake that ive wanted to try since November and im counting down the days till it opens. these flies will hopefully bring me some fish there or on the YAK!!!!!

    Those are a size 6 hopper hook. (wider gap than the 200R) Can you fit all 12 in the altoids box? you can also send a small fly box, and I'll put your new flies in it and make sure it gets back to you. I will PM you the shipping info. Has everyone got the shipping address so far? If not please let me know...Thx

    so a little bit of an update. don't know what to call it, but it has some green hair, bullethead, is generally dark and ugly, has dark legs, and a little tuft of calf hair for visibility. am in the caddis swap too, and am 1/2 way through those flies - next up will be these dark and uglies.

    Yeah, someone should tie up a fatty double layer Chernobyl. That fly is a summer staple and super durable.
