    Thanks for the votes guys, I am not sure what will happen here, there are alot of very nice looking flies in this one. Should be a tough one to decide. If it comes down to a coin toss :confused: I will pick heads, only if I can use my 2 headed quarter. ;)

    Well.... I also tied a Floss bodied Queen Jane pattern as a backup, just in case. :D :D

    Floss bodies and JC wings on midge patterns,

    Fun stuff! :p :p

    Just got back from a unexpected trip to Kansas... We got a few last minute entries while I was gone, but we should have a winner and some photos posted up by the end of this week.

    Well, I ran the chiro's by a few trusted associates and friends, all of the entries were very good, by far the best fly of the month contest we've had. But all came to the conclusion that Randy Diefert's 'Pass Lake Natural" took this contest.

    We based it on each fly's ability to overall represent the natural form, as well as the techniques used.

    When you see the flies, I'm sure all (or most) will agree. Cheer's to you Randy!, Expect your $20 gift certificate in the mail soon. :beer2:

    I'll be announcing the May All About the Fly Contest in after the Dry Falls trip.

    It will probably be a Terrestrial pattern, so get thinking!

    Photos of top entries will be posted asap.

    Damn Mike make me feel bad! But I gotta say this was out of my hands... I know to many of you to be the "judge".

    By the way, your flies are awesome, the bigger green one with the clear bead was running a close second or third with most I talked to.

    I will also send you pictures of the browns I'll be catching on those foam midges you sent! ptyd Cause there is no way in hell you're getting'm back! :rofl: :rofl:

    Wow! Thanks Chris and All about the Fly Shop for hosting. I'm sure that you had allot of really good patterns to judge. I'll be happy to post the recipe to the fly that you chose as soon as I see the picture. And, I'll be over soon to spend lots of money... :)
    This is so cool!I'm going to go pour me a Christian Bros. and celebrate ptyd
