    Oh man are you kidding me! Damn I was excited that I was going to actually get a fly from you. what the Heck! I am disappointed and I ain't joking either. Here I was thinking I was actually going to be one of the few who ever get a fly from you. well all I can say is I am totally bummed. :( :( :(

    Ditto. No need to drop out, I'm no speedy Gonzales either. Haven't you heard the slow and steady wins the race. I'm so damn slow I haven't even decided what to tie yet.

    Wow, what a response!

    If you still have room, I'll participate. If not, I'm up for the next one. Or, alternatively, since you have received such a response, maybe the bunch can be broken down in to two beadhead groups of 10 or 12 each . . . ? Two groups wouldn't be any more difficult to organize than one. But, it sure would be a lot easier for participants to tie 10 or 12 bugs as opposed to tying 20-24 bugs.

    Just a thought.

    By the way, thanks in advance for the efforts!

    Alright richard, your in. We only have 10 i think though. I think we will close it at ten. It is closed! That is unless old man wants back in, then it will be eleven.

    Sweet! :) BTW, does anyone have a preference on color for the deep sparkle pupa? I mentioned olive, but I can do any color if there is any preferences! :)

    Ok, I'll tell you what I will do I will tie up my version of the Cream Caddis Midge Nymph. It will be a woven fly with a black bead where the peacock herl head is at. I will send them in but I don't want any in return as I have so many flies now that I will never get to use them all. I'll get them tied up in the next few days so they are out of my way so I can get down to stream fishing full time.

    This is from a friendly Old Man.

    Yes,and to think that I wasted a yes answer on my 4000th post. Man I must spend a lot of time at this stupid computer when I should be out fishing. But I've got a few flies to tie up so I can get out so I best be at the task at hand. I never relized that I could type so much and say so little.

    Would like to know as to where these are to be sent to when we are all done tying them up. Or are you going to come to all of our houses to get them. Five left to tie. I'm doing a bakers dozen so you can do with what you want with the extras. When I get on a roll with these I usually tie untill I'm worn out. And now I feel like tying.

    Keep rolling Jimbo, and send me a few extras! Did you notice too, that you have to get back to 4000 posts?

    I still haven't decided what I'm going to tie, but I will let you know soon!

    Yeah,I notced that. Guess that I will have to work just a little harder now. Guess that I will just have to get back to tying and see if I can get them done tonight. They are not hard to tie just takes a little longer to do them.

    Time to bump this one again. I need to know where to send these flies that I'm done tying up. I have to get on to bigger and better things,like fishing again.
