I received "Big Tuna's" Steelhead Caddis in the mailbox today. They look like perfect skaters. I probably should keep them all! :D Good job Big Tuna, thank you for the flies.

I am still cranking away on my Steelhead Bees and should have them ready this week. These are slow for me to tie..... but I'm a slow tier anyway.

If those bees are all spun deer hair like the one tried to tie, spin, pack, spin, pack, spin, pack...holy crap that is a lot of work. It makes me think some patterns are better to buy!

No, they are "wulff" style and the wings are squirrel tail which is quite fine and a little bit of a pain to work with. But I'm slow.. ha. By the way, got you $$ in the mail. Thanks, I may have to send a couple bucks back because it's too much. Normally everyone sends in $2, but since you sent your giant box, it is a little more!! :D

Well, I figured that if I sent a huge box that you would feel sorry for my dumb ass and fill it with all the super secret steelhead slammers you could stuff in there.

UPDATE---The only missing collections are Cameron's, D3Smartie, and dryflylarry's (that would be me). Hurry up you guys. I guess you won't be chasing steelhead with these flies this weekend....Sorry Pals. :D

Mine are done and will be out in the mail Tuesday. I've included an extra (took about thirty-five seconds to tie), trying to "create movement".
Thanks Cameron! Don't forgot to send your Two Bucks! Ha! D3Smartie ran out the door to go tuna fishing and forgot to send his with postage. Anyway, I'll cover it this time. He sent some mighty nice patterns too. Thanks D3. Only patterns left to receive are Cameron's masterpieces! Photo taking time sometime this week between looking for salmon or cutthroat.
I am then off to my annual trip to Idaho and Oregon chasing big rainbows and browns for almost 3 weeks. :p

thanks
