    I will chime in too. I also have not tied a damn thing. But here is what you're gonna get.

    For the salt, Thorne River Emerger and fresh will be the "Magic Chiro" I'm gonna try to get at least two per person, if I get real motivated I will tie them in different colors but don't hold your breath.

    I'm done! After a couple of marathon days of tying, I'm done. Hope you like them. I think they look pretty good, I'll post some pics later. The camera battery is dead.

    Before I whip up a bunch of these for the swap, just wanted some feedback. What do you guys think?

    Wow, maybe I should tie up a few more bonuses to be worthy of that fly, very nice!

    If this were a contest I'd be so far behind. Since I get to fish that fly I'm smiling big. Any further questions?

    Sweet, Dudes! So I guess that'll be my freshwater, still undecided for the salt, though. Hopefully I can come up with something that you guys will be equally stoked on.

    no post in days....
    you guys are either tying your assses off,pretending you never said you would do this, commenting on weather a 24 inch SCR is s hog or not, or busy casting to rises given the awesome weather and bloom of chum fry
    LOMA

    look forward to meeting all of you and fishing your master pieces

    I am off to catch a fly on both flies so I can swear they work .....

    Kelvin, I wish I could claim that I was doing one or some of the above. I have made some progress at the bench but that is about it. One week to go, Kelvin is done how is everyone else doing?

    Mumbles, may want to check your calander (or your math skills) - the 15th is 2 weeks away (and from my current rate of tying I'll need every minute of it)

    Done with my freshwater (spey's) but still undecided for the salt pattern. Once I settle in to the new house, I'll sit down and figure it out. I'll keep you posted. Also any requests would be helpful.

    So right, sorry. I've had a long week. I'm still tying a few each night so I'll be ready. Everyone else doing okay?
