Default Free To Good Home: Box of Rough, Ugly, Rejects

Hello, tonight I was going through my fly box and realized I have a lot of flies I don't use. Bottom line, I've got about 100 flies that I don't need and would like to give them away. Be warned, most of these flies are from my beginning fly tying days, were experiments and look awful. Some are OK but still ugly as he!! and need a good home. Someone let me know if you want them. Free shipping too.

I'll gladly take any you want to get rid of. I need to build up my fly box even if they are "ugly".

Those flies look good to me. Then again, what do I know? I just started tying myself and haven't been in this awesome sport for long (I'm 16, so I suppose
I had a pretty early start).

Nice grab Noiso, if I had been on earlier they would be mine!

Very generous of you innes.

Very often the rough looking flies work very well! It doesn't have to look perfect, just "buggy".

Thanks innes! PM sent - we look forward to it. My girlfriend especially needs to build a collection, but I am sure we'll both enjoy them. We are also both beginning fly tiers. Thanks again - here is a shot of the gal from this weekend.
Can you find her? you should be able to spot five trout in the water. . . (heheheh)

Innes, a scholar, a gentleman and indeed a man of your word. The flies were received today and your rough ugly rejects are our treasure.
Thanks.
