Thanks, but it would be pretty hard to mess up a photo of a fly that looks that good! I did mess up on a couple of the photos yesterday afternoon, but I had to take down my setup for dinner and then lost the light so I will go back and replace a couple of the photos that didn't turn out. I can't wait to get out and get these midges wet.
