Re: It's time for Swap #1 - Streamers

I just realized how similar the flies Brookfield and I tied are! That's pretty funny that we both tied almost identical flies with no knowledge of one another's patterns!

Re: Boutonnaire

Nice tie Eunan! When I made the boutonnieres for my wedding, I really had no particular pattern in mind and just kind of went with the colors... I like yours better!

Larry, that's pretty awesome...

Re: Game changer

More streamer-swinging, and hopefully less people on the water as the temperatures drop and the hunting seasons get into full swing. Otherwise, not a whole lot different, besides what I'm fishing for...
