Looking good, folks! Wish I had those for tomorrow morning. Did we settle on a due date yet? I've got a few more to go, but could spit them out pretty quickly if I can find a few hours to spend on the vise this weekend.
I'm on track to get them in the mail Monday morning.
Next Friday is due date. That is the 6th. Of aug
Mine will be in Tuesdays mail

I just used your fly this past weekend and love the way it looks in the water. What is the zig-zag flash material you used? And what brand of hook?
Great to hear! I learned to tie that at Britta's class at avid in July. The wrap is lagartun mini, then its laser dub for the underside. Bucktail + ice ripple fiber + ice dub and the hook is ahrex
