    Charlie: Welcome to the forum! I'd sure like to see some of your vintage lures. The forum doesn't allow posting a photo into a thread directly from your computer due to virus issues. First you need to post a photo into the photo Gallery/album or some other web site like photobucket and then link to that site.
    Here is the FAQ on how to post a photo: The North American Fly Fishing Forum - FAQ

    Hi Charlie, Byron in northwest england here. I'm fascinated by someone who makes fly lures from balsa wood. Was in a craft shop in London last week and almost bought some balsa for $4.00 a large assortment. Now you're on here I wish I had. Look forward to seeing your lures.
