A PIC of Ard's fly in a salmon fillet at an Iowa grocery store? Is this a double dog dare?

If Craig will post a PIC of the two (not one, but two) of his deadly orange scuds he is giving me, a PIC of Ard's fly catching an Iowa grocery store salmon fillet will soon follow. I love this forum lol

Now we know why they lock up the salmon and other seafood in a display case lol.

On a more serious note Craig. Half the streamers in this swap look extremely versatile. Trout, smallies and LM bass etc. Leech patterns, muddlers and such. We'll have to tie some of them up in several sizes.

My swap #1 streamers are here, my streamers are here already lol. I like them a lot. Not to pick favorites but there is a Slumpbuster and some Muddlers in the mix I will be trying to copy very soon as they look very bassy. Sorry, my local trout are kinda small
Glad you finally got your flies there, Dewayne.

Took a little while for sure, but look at it this way...................you've probably set the record for longest wait for flies from a swap. Who knows, you may be in the Guinness record book next year............. That's worth something...........!!

Where is that pick of Ard's fly in the mouth of that grocery store salmon.................?

In addition to being locked up in a display case, the salmon fillets had no mouths. Imagine that, they're fillets. See what happens when I have a few beers and shoot my mouth off on the internet lol. No free magic orange Craig scuds for me.

I don't know..............salmon can sometimes swallow the fly.............no telling where you might find a Light Spruce Fly on one of those fish..............better have a closer look at those fillets (chuckle).
