    Well , I am back now- not bad too :thumb: , 30 hours down and back to Northern California with 3 hours of fishing to boot ! :thumb:

    Wife and fished the upper Sac yesterday for a few hours , we each caught about 10 fish apeice , all about 12 " give or take- with one she got going an honest 16" or so- she was fishing her drys- a #12 Royal Wulff, while I fished a #10 bugmeister, with a yellow John nymph dropper- 4 on the dropper.We fished the Sims road beat if you know it. :)

    ****************Breaking News***************

    My wife has just flipped the quarter and reports that the coin came up heads. So ibn has won the coin toss until whatever judicial official Tundra pays off says otherwise. :cool:



    ***********************************************

    Not to put any pressure on the rest of the team but so far, the early returnees have served up some "killer" flys. :beer1:

    Really nice work by all, all 4 of you should be proud of your hard work. :thumb:

    ********************************************

    CMTundra qoute="Easter Candy" eh? Nice as always. What's the tail? Is the red & black one feather, or two separate?"

    The red is dyed golden pheasant crest and the black feather is a flank feather from a Starling.There is also golden pheasant crest and yellow Senegal parrot in the tail.

    ******************************************

    13 flies is all you have to tye

    But hey :ray1: - if you want to tye 14 I know the extra can be put to use ,LOL :thumb:

    Due to me by April 10


    Happy tying all and thanks for all your humor and for putting up with my madness.

    these 4 are done and in;

    Concession speech

    Johnny Cochran & me talked...turns out he's a gear chucker & wasn't interested in a share of the take on Davy Earl's surprise & IBNs Skwalas, & since I sure don't have any cash to give him....suppose I'll have to concede on this one. Darned Iowa coins anyway. If it'd been an Ohio coin I'm sure things'd have been different. :confused:
    So, Congrads IBN! :thumb:
    Thanks for the extra incentive Davy & doing such a good job as the swapmeister.

    Well mine are done, all 13 of em. The last one took twice as long as the first one to do. Something about getting them all done seems to work that way for me. Was gonna tie another set but my fingers quit. Will have em your way Davy Just as soon as I can get off my butt and on my feet.

    If only the line at McDonalds moved just a little bit faster.....?? :(
    I guess I should have known that the double cheeseburgers weren't enough to "sway" the all mighty swapmiester!
    I have about 12 calls into the postmaster generals office in DC and they said that there seems to be some issues with the validity of the post marks on both IBN's and Cmtundra's packages!! :hmmm: Evidently, the "Blonde Factor" is to blame. :eek: The carrier failed to notice that any package that is not labled express is to be held for at least 48 hours before delivery and any packages received prior to that time frame are subjuct to immediate seizure. :eek:Therfore, the FBI will be arriving shortly to pickup both packages and impounding them until the 48 hour rule has been enforced!! It also seems that Ken Starr is going to come out of retirment to head up a Federal investigation into how those packages could have possibly beat me to Davy's house!! :p :p

    Davy, Congrats on a successful trip to Calif. ptyd :beer2:. I think that all this drama about who got what where and by when seems a bit much for a chewed up dog toy prize. ;) The flies look great. I noticed my fly seems to be a little fuzzy. Man, I just can't get break can I. bawling:

    Monty

    BTW, Moe's flies were done before mine. She had me beat by a couple of days.

    OK Guys, mine are finally done and in the mail as of yesterday afternoon. I was tying Carey Specials but ran out of peacock hearle. The book I got the pattern out of said chenille can be used as a substitute. I had this green/brown/flash stuff so I used that. I didn't want to send a batch of part chenille part hearle so I finally got some more hearle over the weekend and finished them up. So I sent one of each style and a pair for the "Swap Meister". My wife said the chenille I used looked like camoflage. So I named the variation the "Camo Carey". I thought it would be good to test them out (even though I had already sent them) so I went to Lone this afternoon for a couple of hours. I tied the Camo Carey on my sinktip and did a slow troll with some short strips. WAM, something takes it hard and goes straight down then brakes me off. Of course I only had one :beathead: I tied on the regular Carey and hooked up three more, one LDR and two to hand. Needless to say I will be tying some more Camo Carey's tonight. A big thanks to Davy for putting this together.

    Look watch for them, great job

    yours will make about half of them done!

    I think Atomic Dog may be done too, but the Postal Service is holding his in the "containment room" -- somthing about "glowing" substances in his package. :thumb:
