    I had planned on putting those flies in the mail yesterday, but I went fishing instead. Crappies and Gills on a 3 wgt are kind of fun.

    The fles went out this afternoon.

    Tight Lines and Best Fishes,

    I just finished yet another huge school project to the tune of 35 pages. After I catch up on my sleep tonight, I'll have some free time to tie. My flies should be done by this weekend.

    I think they're f....ing PHAT!!!! At the moment I'm working on the original sofa pillas. Hopefully we'll be getting these flies sooner then expected.

    The legs kind of pissed me off, but what can you do when they come rolled up.

    Scott,

    They don't look like much, but I've taken more fish on those BWO's than any other pattern I've used. Most of the time I don't even hackle them, and they still float like corks. I get that color deer hair at Cabelas, it's the only place I've found that carries it. With flies that size a little deer hair goes a long ways.

    These Wulff's are kicking my a$$. I'll be done on time though. I wanted a challenge, and I guess I got it. My practice #12's & #14's went pretty well, but I'm tying #16's for the swap. That's when things got harder for this amateur. Oh well, all in good fun...just gotta run & buy yet another batch of ginger hackle. :beathead:
