My latest batch of flies I tied and donated to the gals at Wyoming CFR program (Casting for Recovery)
CFR is a healing retreat for cancer survivors, The ladies are invited to go fly fishing one weekend to get away from stresses due to medical treatment, home, or workplace also they get to experience something new and challenging while enjoying beautiful surroundings. Great program!!
1. March Brown Fly ½ dozen
2. Griffith’s Gnat 1-dozen
3. Green Drake Emerger 1-dozen
4. Mercury Midge 1-dozen
5. Zebra Midge 1-dozen
6. Adams Nymph 1-dozen
7. Elk Hair Caddis ½ dozen

Tying rods and building flies? Something like that, multitasking gets confusing
