    Ha! Yeah I guess that didn't sound very good did it. I'm good for mid July or later. Just super busy at the moment and for the next 2-3 weeks is all. Pumped to tie of some stingers though.

    I always like to do all the stingers and eyes one night, then I have them all ready the next night to clouser. I can usually crank out a dozen or so in a couple evenings. Maybe that will help in your situation.

    Can't wait to see them all.

    Good idea. I think I'll try to assembly line em and crank them out over two or three days. Sounds easy enough.

    Do we need to call dibs on colors? Not that having a dozen chartreuse stingin clousers would be a bad thing.

    Good call, Ill start with green over chartreuse, but having a few people tying the more popular color combos is just fine with me
    And I've been using mono, 15lb amnesia, super solid. I also tend to stay away from wire on the beach, barnacles tend to tear it up fast. Maybe ok for boat fishing. Some forum members use super heavy braid, like 60lb plus powerpro so its a bit stiffer.

    I was thinking the classics white over chartreuse or white over pink. Can't decide.

    I am doing a mixed upper with chartreuse/blue/purple over white. There will be a custom touch or two to the construction. I use fire wire for my stingers.
