Hi Hans,

I like the orange. What was the fruitbag this orange came from?
There will allways be a solution.

YES!!! One of the guys from the UKFD Board is sending me some produce bags to tie flies with. My wife, VEE, thinks I'm nuts. Produce bags, tea bags for caddis wings (Europen tea bags are very different than American tea bags), Grip and Kamasan hooks. Now she wants to know when I'm taking her to Europe to do some fishing.

Clementines (Lidl) or oranges (Albert Heijn)

Simply twist, yes, and one and same piece. Wrap ribbon flat to bend, then twist to form the rib back to thorax. There is no thread under the abdomen.

Cheers,

Hans,

I linked this thread on a couple other boards and people are starting to look for plastic produce bags here in the US. Hmmmm, black market produce bags. I could make a fortune.

Let's not spread the word around about using produce bags, the price of produce will jump sky high.
Really like the colors, especially the Tups.
Thanks for posting.
