I got them just now! They are great too! I'll post some pics of some of the fish I catch with them too.

Mobarclay - I will have your bugs in the mail by the end of the week. I am going to put a little more time into this that I originally planned. I am going to go more "traditional". I think you will be pleased.

As I speak I have some hardbodied cork poppers drying "on the line" and I am goiing to tie up some diehard nymphs tomorrow. I am going to try to get a total of 30 out by Fri.

I am having some problems with "handshake" but so far they look awesome. I hope you like them.

I am going to send you a couple of these as well:

These hoppers kick ass!

Oh No, fshfanatic's head just expanded another hat size. Careful what encouragement you might be giving him. Pretty soon, he'll have to make the whole board some files and then how big will his head be?

No really, you will be very happy with the flies the fanatic ties. I'm just jealous I'm not getting the hopper.

Later,
Terry

That's okay, I'll let you watch me fish with it next time I'm in Longview.

Wow! Now that I'm getting all these great flies, can somebody come and show me how to use them?! It's a tough life having to actually go find some good water to catch some fish in! Oh well, it's gotta be done right?
Seriously, thanks to everyone's great advice and help in getting me back in action action after such a long time away from such a great sport.
Warmly,
Chris

That's not right, man...

No, really I look forward to meeting you someday. We can hit the ag pond at SFA and see if we can hook up with some ducks or bream. The ducks are more likely to hit than the bream.

Later,
Terry

It's been a long time since I've even thought about the ag pond! I fished it a few times then a student got e. coli (sp?) while fishing there (not sure how that happens though) and then I found somewhere else to fish.
I'll look forward to it!
Chris
