    I will be picking up supplies to tie this weekend...I have a couple different Ideas to try and tie the glass bug I posted pic of...we'll see how it goes....I hope to have them finished this weekend. Ira, I believe you are very close to me in Everett, could I drop the flies off when they are finished instead of mailing them?

    Mr. Coachman's are now in and they have that perfect color brown that is almost impossible to create with thread. Great bugs.

    I am finished with mine, but I am trying to wrap up both swaps (midge) together. I am shooting for Tues if not Wed in the mail.. I'd send them earlier, but work is killing me for free time.

    Just finished, in the mail tommorrow. Blood worm pattern by Darc Knobel of Desert Angler out of Ephrata. I have done well with this pattern in bomber size, 8-10-but also on smaller sizes like these. I think he calls it the "Jim Beam", holographic mylar with epoxie.
