Not sure how to update my profile to show email address, so it......
Thanks Anyfish. I'm not sure how to update the profile myself. Appreciate the e-mail addy.
E-mails have been sent to all participants. If you didn't get one, please PM me.
E-mail resent and also a PM as backup. Thanks for the heads up.
Thanks, came through that time.
I will have my flies on the way early next week.
Flies will go in the mail tomorrow. I can hardly wait until the complete collection comes back.
I have not fished the spey yet. I tried casting it one day on the Nisqually and found that it is harder than it looks . I need to get a lesson or 2 before I try it on any big water.
I've got a DVD on spey casting that might help, you welcome to borrow it anytime you like.
We're heading to Idaho at the end of this month for a little fishing on the Lochsa, Selway and Clearwater Rivers. Should be back around the 3d of October. If your up for a trip to the Cowlitz, let me know.
Flies are in from Davpot and Warren Perry. You guys are tied for first in. Nicely done on both sets of flies.
Davpot sent in an interesting variation on the EHC, and Warren offered up his Reverse Spider. I've fished Warren's spiders before and they are SRC catchers for sure. It's also one of my favorite patterns for SRC's.
If all the flies come in early, I'll mail them out the day after the last set comes in, not to rush anyone. The drop dead date for me to have the flies is still the 20th of September.
I will tie them up Sunday and have them shipped Monday. I am a Canadian who snuck on board so hopefully the international mail service is not too cruel. Had to go to the craft store today to pick up the final ingredient for the flies. hmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
No rush as long as I have them by the 20th.
Hello Ron et al:
Just returned from few days on the coast for SRCs. Had a blast on EHCs and a yellow orange Reverse Spider with grizzly hackle collar. What a fish catcher! I am really looking forward to these flies! Sea Runs....oh yah, BTW, has anyone managed a steelie on the RS? It looks like a killer!
Dave in Oregon
I hooked and lost a nice native steelie on a #6 orange reverse spider, fished below a sinktip this winter the first week of march. Also caught a bunch of bright searuns the same week in the same river too on a orange reverse spider. Also I've hooked up with silvers on the yellow spiders too while fishing for cutts, nothing like having your 5 wt spooled on a silver doing an express run up a pool. Do up some of those spiders using a black body with yellow dyed mallard, for low light conditions too, or just a change up when nothing else has worked.
Flies are in the mail as of this morning.
Ron - is the DVD the one from Fly Fishing TV? It takes place on the Deschutes. If so this is a great DVD that should help with the spey rod.
Wow, another set in the mail and still plenty of time left.
Yup, the Video is the one from the Hazels. Not a bad video at all. I also have Simon's book which is also a real help.
Check your email for news on a trip to the Cowlitz. I would like to borrow the DVD.
