Two flies for each of the other six tyers, right? That is 12 of the same fly! I was initially thinking tying two patterns and sending one each. I've tied my pilot versions of both the patterns I was considering. I'll decide and get started inhaling the spun deer hair clippings. Tasty stuff.

That's ok Mumbles. 12 flies is correct. If you did 6 of each, no problems.

DFL,

I tied 6 Riffle-Dancer in olive. This fly is freaking all deer hair, which I must admit is my first deer hair attempt. I found it quite tasty all the little bits of clipped deer hair.

I also tied 6 of the After Dinner Mint in a combo of black and olive. Again more deer hair, tasty stuff. The last of these still needs the muddler head clipped, but I'm ready for an address. Do we have it yet? Do you want photos now too?

I shipped mine from the post office in Silverdale today. I was tempted to drop them off but I did not want you to think you had a stalker. They should arrive tomorrow or the next day.

Ha! Stalker is a possibility Mumbles. I live sort of at the end of a road and I get no visitors, so if someone comes in my driveway, generally, without calling I know it's a stranger or stalker! Anyway, I have lots to tie still! Thanks.

I'm still slowly tying away.... Got Mumbles flies and they look good. A real mouthful! Yum Yum.
Don't forget to send in $2 for shipping back to you guys. Mumbles forgot, so I guess I'll have to meet him for coffee to deliver the goods somewhere. :)

Damn Larry, now I have to meet you and buy you a coffee. I missed that in the instructions somewhere, but I was just talking with the misses last night about how the return postage works. I've got a lot to learn. You tell me once all the flies arrive and I'll come meet you on your turf...maybe you can show me that secret point, creek or beaver pond!!

If it doesn't cost over the two bucks I put in there could you send them to..

J Floyd c/o
Marble Mountain Ranch
92520 Hwy 96

Then I will take pictures of Half Pounders that I get on your fly. Should be able to get one with every fly in a day or two.
