    Spey flies are now allowed!!!

    Funny thing is I tie both the double egg sperm fly and the babine special, have had 100's of hook-ups...Ugly or not they produce, now if I can ever land one of the mysterious steelie then I will have accomplished my journey.

    Hey don't give the double egg pattern ! I wanted one of those that's why I decided to get in. I hate tying those things. the only way I tie them and I know your gonna laugh is if I can get those little pom-pom balls from the Craft store.

    LOL, quit whinning???? I'm not whinning. I'm winning. ;-) I already commited myself to my general boss's. But, I'll send you some speys just to spite you. }(

    Oh, I agree, there are times the egg flies work great. I use the babine special a bit. Especially late in spawning season, and ESPECIALLY when the salmon are spawning. Catch all sorts of goodies that way (cutts, dollies, and steelhead). Great pattern.

    OK, I think I do it, no other fly swap comittments I know of, can work around son's football and my work to get these done by the due date.

    SH 69 and Old Man, I will not be doing 12 snakes, they are time intensive but I am getting better with them now.

    Will do some GLs winter pattern the Washington steelheaders may have not seen.

    Please confirm if Black Ghost is in so I can commence with the project ? (Other wise I will start another fly swap on the other board right SH 69 ?)

    LOL Hal. I saw you spoke of a hand tied swap. How about you doing a snake in hand tied format??? ;) :p :7 Could you imagine that???? OMG. I think you could hear me cussing all the way to your house Hal. Hey, I was gonna tell you, with your flies, I put in some of that sturgeon leader for your flies.

    I can't tell for sure if there's one more spot, but if there is I would like to join the party! Don't know what I'll tie, but I promise it won't be pretty... Maybe a marabou fly?

    Flies are in the mail!!!!!!!!!

    You should have them tomorrow or wednesday. They would've been out sooner if I'd had the address. :D

    I took it easy. Sent in the General Boss. But, you have a nice carepackage in the flies too boot. :D
