Flies in the mail this morning.
I've been laggin'! I'm having a hard time deciding what pet, and what fly...but I have some ideas! I am going to start tying soon, I promise.
It would be great if you include photos of the pet source just for the fun part.
I didn't send a picture of the pets, but I'll find one on the computer and send it later.
I've "harvested" some black dubbing from the cat, been through a few prototypes, and finally decided on a pattern.
So I'll be cranking out the clones in the next couple of days and will get them in the mail early next week.
Got Steves today:thumb:smelled like dog when I opened the tin, great ties. I have some blondie fur from a mutt and still waiting for daughter in laws cat fur. Is there such a thing such as a blonde scud (not the missle) This is going to be a great inventing swap>
