Default Re: "Bucket List" flies

Calftail,
Hey, Jo Ann Durand was my mother. She would have hired you in a second! Even though at 14 she thought that men had to large of hands to tie the more delicate patterns, you seem to have mastered the art. She gave me some personal instruction but I failed. I still have her vice and my brother has a display box of about 100 of her personally tied flies including the Sure Strike Special and her Wooly Worm. I have a poor picture of them from years ago, but I can maybe able to get more detailed pictures if your interested this Thanksgiving. Let me know.
