    I will get in.

    I have to report to Cali Sept 1 so I will get these in the mail before then and I won't be able to actually see mine until the 28th of Oct because I have to travel from Cali, straight to Boggans on the Grande.

    Do surface scum flies count? You still see the take really well even though they are an inch or so under the water. If so I will tie an Assassin. If not I will tie a copper herniator skater. That is, unless we are doing two each and then I will tie both. I will need to know within a week though please because I am tying like mad for the next two months of solid fishing...

    Ada Boy Jeremy-

    We'll take surface scum. I would say if we don't get any more tiers, then we will do 2 each if everyone can handle that. I say we make the decision here Monday nite. I'm fishing tommorow. I personally would probably prefer your skater. You're in Dude! Thanks for joining in.

    Personally, I rather tie 1 fly and 2 for Larry as D3 suggested. Two apiece could be a little tougher to get accomplished. However, I'll go with the flow, so if y'all decide to go w/ 2 I'm still in.

    I can tie ugly ass flies fast as you can drink ice cold beer on a hot summer day. Tell me how many per person and I'm there. I need the practice anyway. You have to tie a lot of ugly files to get good at tying ugly files, right?

    Should we post when we're done to get the address or are you going to PM everyone where to send it?

    Got some new materials gonna start soon.

    Thanks,

    Reamse

    I'll tie 12 total 6 of one variation 6 of another, one might be just a regular old standard to speed up the process but the other will be a good solid attempt at something new, i'll get crackin tonight.

    It appears we are tying 12 flies, so we each get two. That is what D3Smartie is suggesting and I think that is fine. If Jeremy is rushed, we only need 6 from him. :)

    I tied a lot of them.. They get a lot of use in Cali, so I am way ahead now. I have about 4 dozen of them.

    Ah you're the man Jeremy! You only need to tie 12 unless we return your flies to you. There are 7 tiers and you are one of them! :D
