    I'm glad it's the end of June, I'm tying a BIG stonefly and these things don't just jump off the vise. :hmmm:

    I haven't even started yet. Well, I've started in a way I guess... I've tied about a dozen different patterns but haven't found one I like enough to use for the swap....

    I'm not really into the technodigitalametimagryical........ stuff. My digital camera is a piece of crap and won't really do the trick. If any of the guys have picks?

    I've only got Mritari's and Mike's flies so far. Both of these are stoneflyesque. Well, maybe Mritari's is a little hopper like. Seeing Mike's 'Amy's Ant' made me change my plan. I had started to tie up some stoneflies like his, but I didn't want to be put to shame. :beathead: I'm planning on going with some beetles right now, maybe, instead.

    Thanks AbsoluteHog.. To put things in perspective the fly is 45mm long. The stoneflies we have here are that size and they're hatching now, so later. I do tie it in a 30mm size in orange, yellow, black and tan.
