So am I, it also gives me reason to order more material. I've been looking for an excuse to buy some jungle cock and this will be it.

Thanks chaps. Aye the dabblers are a very photogenic fly, don't know what it is about them, but the fish love them too.

Still snowing here....two days of it now and I'm pretty sick of it. What esle can one do but keep tying I guess.

I just want to say that some of you guys/gals, along with being accomplished fly dressers are fantastic photographers. I was over in the photography thread in the lodge and it's breathtaking, as are some here.
