    5-Five of the one you catch the most fish on ( post a picture of your fly with the fish it caught)

    I am sure anything you tie will be both creative and catch fish

    Darn, Steve! I was thinking on coming but now I'm having second thoughts.

    Wait, I'd better go anyway. Last time I was in the shop Brita said she thought I had died.

    I started taking daily showers again, time to get out in public.
