    I think we only have 8 people so you can send them all and i'll tie up a couple more for you so that you get the right amount back or you can just keep the extras.
    Thank you for the quick work scott.
    I look forward to seeing the flies.

    My flies are in flight. The chorus girl is named after the materials used to tie the pattern as they are what every chorus girl dreams of, silk, gold, and mink.

    I'm a Baaaaaad boy

    Okay, I slacked off and went fishing on Monday instead of mailing the flies. Also grabbed an opportunity to fish Tuesday, so I didn't mail the flies until today.

    As I was packing them up, I said to myself, "Self, these don't look like either gold or black demons!" As usual, Self was right on the money. I sort of mixed up two patterns that use similar materials. They looked pretty fishy though so I made a couple extras. After mailing off the swap flies I went down to the Nisqually and had several Cutts jump all over these mixed up flies.

    The recipe is on the toe tag, so enjoy.
