    Went down to the laundry room today to remove some things from the dryer for my wife.
    When I cleaned the lint trap, I came across some neat looking fuzz. What great dubbing I sez
    to myself. Now I will lurk around when my wife does the laundry. Maybe I can find a killer bug in
    that lint.

    I know a number of fly tyers who use laundry lint for fly patterns.... unfortunately it is difficult to match the colors from day to day. You may never get the color combination you want ever again.

    Gives a whole new way to name flies though doesn't it?

    Fisher #1 - "Hey, what are you catching all those fish on?"

    Fisher #2 - "Well,.. it's kind of a toss up between the Blue Jeans, Whitie Tighty, and the Pink Panties."

    I know one member on here who washes his kids blanket whenever he needs that special red color.

    Maybe you should check your belly button? Could be some good stuff in there.

    kinda hard to collect lint with an outie.

    Hmmm....I was just tellin' the wife last night that a set of her pantyhose looked about due for replacing.

    Dark brown nylon might make good tying material!! :D

    I don't know if I got a belly button anymore...there's so much hair around it I haven't seen it in ages.....

    Hey, wait a minute....I could use my belly hair to tie Wulf patterns. And my nose hair would make great mayfly tails. Hell, I'm a walkin fly shop.

    Gotta be careful though...if word gets out I could end up living in a coop at Tom Whiting's, getting shorn twice a year, and my lovely locks hanging in ladie's hair.

    Safety issue, dryer lint is flammable-- no smoking
