sent them out today
Man, you guys are on the ball. We're still shooting for the end of June not may, right?
That's the plan
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:
HEY sloan! hacve you received my cinammon scented amy's ants yet?
Yes, and they are delicous.
Just wondering if we can see some pictures from the flies that are in?
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.
OK is this BIG enough for everyone!
They're in the mail.
Now I'm depressed. That fly is nothing short of amazing. And yes it's big enough, it's the size of my god damn head.:rofl:
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.
Hey, how bout an address? And Don that is an incredible tie.
I need that address sloan.
Sloan, I know you travel, so if you don't have a solid addy to send these to, I don't mind having them sent to me and I'll ship ship them out...
