Thanks for the pictures and recipes! I look forward to receiving them and even more to fishing them in the spring.

Thank you for all of your hard work Allan. Nice pictures.
Unreal everyone. Just great. I can't believe some of the things that I saw above, splaying fibbets on a #32, woven body on a #24, WOW.
