    Hey Cameron flies arrived today and look great! I guess we will still call march 15th the deadline unless we all get a wild hair. Take care and good fishing. Kevin

    I've been unable to find usable wing material for the Amethyst Spey so I'm going to tie a Grey Heron for my classic spey. The original is still undecided.

    Hey all. Just a little reminder theres roughly three weeks left for the due date. I said march 15th but looking at the calendar thats a thursday so lets call march 17th which is a saturday as the due date. Gives you slackers a couple more days to put off tying(I include myself when I say slackers). Anyway get to tying and let me know if there are any questions or problems. So far Cameron has his flies in, nice flies to. good job Cameron. Kevin

    hey! I resemble that remark!
    This slacker is in the process of tying the Pryce-Tannatt version of the Purple King for the classic pattern. Then the Fran's Fancy for the original pattern will get tied. Will make the deadline God willling and the river don't fill with too many steelhead and springers ;)

    Regards,

    The Purple Kings are completed. Half of the Fran's Fancys are also now done. "We're gaining on it!!!!!"

    Hey all. Halcyon recieved your speys today. BEAUTIES! Ive got to say you also have my vote for best toe tags also! Little over a week to go. How you all doing out there? Halcyon and Cameron are off the hook, looking at there flies gave me some motivation so off to put a dent in my flies. Good fishing and gods speed on the tying. Kevin

    Looks like someone (name deleted to protect the guilty) has waited until the last minute and now has the proverbial teat in a ringer syndrome. :rofl:
