Bob, you are always welcome to my slightly used, re-bent fly patterns. :D

I look forward to you, Jim, Flyshop Bob and I swinging flies together!

BTW, I have designed a new "secret" flymph style fly pattern just for the Madison. You guys will be jealous. ;)

John, those are quite nice. They show you share the same interest in purpose and function as those masters in Shaner’s collection.
I hate it when I think I'm buying organic vegetables, and when I get home I discover they are just regular donuts.

Yes, I truly appreciate the Shaner collection and the stories behind the Yorkshire Spider patterns. I would love to see the actual hooks they used to tie those flies.

I am analytical, so I look at a fly and want to know... Who tied it and why? What was the flies purpose? Was the tier limited in materials accessible? What were they trying to imitate?

To me that is part of the joy of being a fly tier.
