Christmas fly was mailed out this morning.
Chris, Thanks for the heads up, Buddy. I'll be looking. Anyone else out there gonna take a shot at this? There's $111 dollars worth of hackle just waiting for you to tie up a Christmas Fly for the contest.
I'm working on mine, think its beginning to look like a "do over" though.
btw, finally got around to looking at the wet flys from last month, really nice stuff!
I have intentions of tying it, but haven't been able to find the time with the move. I should get to it next week.
All right, Guys. Lets git 'r done.
I'll be sending one in, have the design complete and now just need to tie it up.
I plan on sending one eventually, but this is hard! Did you all the latest issue of American Angler and the ties by Scott Sanchez???? Nice Santa fly.
Missed that one Wayne, but I did get a nice fly from Anyfish this afternoon. Looks like this is going to heat up a little. Lots of entries.
I got that Issue, and especially liked the Santa fly.
There's one thing I need to pick up at the the fly store before I tie up my pattern, then I will get it off before the week is over.
I sent the Christmas fly out today. This one my daughter tied. It is a pattern that Backyard showed her and she modified it with different materials and "super sized it" to the appropriate proportions to match the #3 Alex Jackson hook.
She is also working on the January flies. It is supposed to be a productive pattern in the salt or fresh water, but you will have to wait to see what it is.
By the way, nice flies everyone. Mine came a little late this time around.
You need to tip your postal workers a little (with money, not tip them over) to speed up the process. A couple guys here get their flies very fast.
I'm gonna be off line for a day. Time for a little puter tune up and maintainence. Plus I'm going broadband instead of dial-up. Tired of the ssssslllllooooowwwww hookups.
See Y'all in the AM.
Dang, puter tune up didn't take that long and hellllooooo broadband. I like this.
Sweet Ron! Move'n on up in the world. I'll be tying my fly tonight, so if my vision is carried out onto the hook well I should be mailing that sucker out tomorrow.
A nicely tied fly arrived this afternoon from Tom Grobelny's tag team partner. I wish my flies looked that good.
