Ira and every one I am pretty bad and very humbled. your flies arrived today and I was sitting here tying a few and also checking the forum. and wow you guys are good. I never had real lessons or tied with anyone so have had little to compare to but I'm not even in the class with you guys. MY flies are simple but usually work is all that has gotten me by I guess but I really love what came in the mail I'm sorry it wasn't afair exchange. Thanks so much for the opportunity to share with all of you.
Bob don't feel that way, I'm looking forward to fishing your flys at different lakes I fish . I hope you get a chance to fish all the offerings.I know I will be trying all, at different times and lakes.
Just got the flies. Awesome! I'll have to fight the urge to string them all onto one line and drag them up and down Pass Lake.
Can't wait to see what the browns think of Blue's glorious Platte River Spider - but I'm afraid to use it until the tying recipe goes up and I can make a decent copy. Troutpocket's leech looks like another winner - I remember a damsel nymph swimming up to my boat once that looked exactly like it.
Also, I've been puzzling over ideas for a new baitfish pattern - until I saw Chef's streamer. I'm gonna have fun playing with that pattern in various colors.
Thanks guys!! Hopefully I'll soon be posting pics of these flies with their mouths full of WFF winter lake flies.
