    Ahhh, the legendary Moto's Minnow. I thought that it was illegal to photograph that pattern.

    Since Chris and Sean's flies (no fault of Sean) both have pulled a flight MH370 on us I'm going to send out what I've got tomorrow.

    We are under two weeks from the next due date so I'll send Sean's streamers along with the next batch to keep things rolling. Sean, I'll send you everything when the flies arrive.

    In the mean time, here are the streamers from Travis B

    The box containing my vise as well as my contribution to February finally arrived at my house. Again guys I'm terribly sorry for the delay, riseform should receive my flys Tuesday for February and March.

    Sean, those look great.

    I knew this would happen the minute I put the others in the mail. I wanted to keep people inspired with some positive feedback before the next ones start arriving. I'll put Sean's flies in with the next batch for everyone. Sean, I'll send your streamer pack as soon as they get here! Now, if I can just get Chris to open a gallery page...

    Speaking of which, how is everyone doing with their dry fly/emerger patterns?

    Hopefully taking a trip to my local fly shop today or sometime this week, so I can tie Mercer's Missing Links( small dry fly that replicates many aquatic insect adults, such as Mays, Caddis, small stones, ect.

    I got my flies, but the package was opened! Someone or something stole all of my flies. Sad face

    It was my stupid brother. He got the mail, took it out, and didn't tell until AFTER I posted this. Sorry.

    LOVE THE FLIES!

    Well, its official. We've got some boys in this swap that can really tie! Got mine, they look even better in person.

    Also, I have two more large dries to tie and then I'll be shipping those and my emergers together
