Thank you all. Now you see why it has been super tough for me, what with going to the river and the pond 3 days a week. ARGH! I bet that fly would have worked, but I am waiting till you all get yours then we can all go try them out together.
Next week, Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday, cause they are going out tomorrow. Check in when you get them.
As soon as I get the wooden box I will set that up with the flies and the names of the tiers.

I would like to do a raffle for casting for recovery, can anyone help me with that?

Of course anyone here can bid on it also.

Thanks again and I am seeing Terrestrials in the not so distant future.
We got a lot of attention and some new people. Maybe get FLY GAL and DUCKER in on one.
