Nice dang tyes guys :thumb: :beer2:

Just to let you guys know that I'm still around... I'll be tying my flies over the holidays and I hope to get them shipped out by the 1st or 2nd. If this is going to crimp anyones style, let me know and I can try to bump up the schedule a bit :)

Also, those flies look pretty darn smoooove ;)

wayne, pm sent. also an update on mine, the ingrediants that i ran out of half way through the flies is supposed to be in the mail today so as soon as i get the feathers it should only take a day or two to finish them and get them sent.

Wayne got his flies in, rrrrreal purdy ones too!!!

I have an issue thats come up, I am having some surgery on the 12th and will not be moving too well on the 15th-16th I am sure. I live in the Everett area and if I could get a volunteer to help me sort all the flies and get them mailed out it would be much appreciated. Anyone near here?

thanks , now go fish ( oh, and get your flys tyed too )

Jest about done here, couple more to do and I dang ran out of stuff. But I'll hit the store tomorrow and have em' all done up this weekend, and mailed out early next week. After I go fishing of course since most rivers have fallen back in shape.
