    You realize Ringlee has already mailed his flies to me you would be missing one fly if you decide to Join. If everybody else is okay with it I am.

    It sounds like everyone is going to tie some big ugly sculpins. So i have decided to do the opposite. Im gonna tie a little wounded sculpin. It one of those flies that you look at and think, "thats cant possibly catch anything." But then u try it and it works great. Im tank testing them and comparing them to the real action of a wounded sculpin. So i hope they work for you.

    Little baby ones work really good For SRC's! Better tie some red blood in their too.

    They got there fast! Thanks. I messed around with the two tone colors and I think they came out really good.
