    Oops, for those who are really fast tiers, I edited the first thread to include my mailing addy. For those who, like me, are a little slower, it will still be there for you when your done.

    Sorry, Daryle, it's in use right now. I'm tying some 4/0 salmon flies. When I get to the 20's I use the magnifyer and a set of mag-eyes together, plus the bi-focals. I think I'm getting old.

    My size 20 minute blood worms are done, I'm going to do a soft hackle next. I can post a pic or do you want to do that?

    Going to start my bonus fly tomorrow, what color would you prefer on your soft hackle guys? I'm thinking partridge and orange.

    Daryle, as for me, my favorites are partridge and orange or green. either work very well. Eagerly awaiting to see what your using for hackle on those.
