    I don't hand tie my flies but my grandfather does and he sent me a ton, he live in Colorado, and he sent me different things what I am looking for is someone who probably ties there own that would like to trade. I can send a list of what I have and we would trade a few. If any one is interested let me know.

    Not tying your own flies is a serious character flaw...

    I agree I agree, its something I want to lear but haven't gotten to it yet.:) I think I am going to give it a go this winter. And I can't keep asking grand pa for them either.lol And he told me years ago when I was a kid and learned how to do this that he would show me.

    What ties are you looking for, I have a killer still water dry I am willing to trade, as I tie it a lot. Tan/rust, cream/tan, gray/black, white/black, and orange grizzly/white

    Well Tony I tend to fish the north fork of the cda, st joe and the spokane river I am not a lake guys. But anything you have that would work of moving water I am game for. I just am trying to expand my collection and not ask my g pa for them all the time. Plus he sends a dozen or two of everything he sends.

    You can indeed keep asking your Grandpa for flies... as long as you keep fishing together. :)

    Well he lives in Colorado and me up here so with my family, work and the rest of life I am lucky to get to see him once a year but when I do we do.:) He's getting up there in age though so I don't know how much longer that will last. He doesn't even get out as much as he did and I know that just from when we talk. he is old early 80's and I know he would like to go out more than his body lets him.
