Re: Little Gray Bastard :-)

John,
Your boxes look like bins in a fly shop! They look great! Can we come to your shop if we get low on certain patterns? Have you tied commercially before?

Re: Brown Drake Spider

Re: Hare and Copper

Bearbutt,
You made me laugh with your comments about gathering bullock hair and squirrels! John, a very interesting looking squirrel dubbing in your picture! I'll have to check that brand out! It is such a versatile dubbing!

Wayne, Ray's right! Yours is an impressive looking pattern! There are a bunch of versions and/or interpretations out there of this noble fly and yours is destined to become a classic!

This is fascinating stuff men! Please keep us fed!

Re: Winged Starling & Eggplant

Joaniebo, Wow! These are beautiful and would definitely reek havoc in my neighborhood (Bluegills mainly)!

Thanks for bringing it to us friend!
