Finally got some feathers this year. Now time to figure out what I will be tying, something with duck, no upland birds for second year in a row.

I bet you'll have a ton of horse hair in the next couple of weeks if it keeps warming up!

Some soft hackle bugginess coming your way Fellas.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready for some spring time temps & hatches.

I'll mail them out tomorrow.

Fly box on the way along with a self-addressed stamped envelope.

:D

I decided to forget the Royal Coachman wets and instead go with 'Haregarian Soft Hackles' that anyone can fish anywhere and guaranteed to catch fish.

:oops:

can't wait to see the flies.

go easy on mine. the 18 I tied is most I have tied in a long while.  

a deer hair and peacock hurl dry fly. that works great on small stream brookies. that's all i have used it for so far, but it should be a very versital fly

Flies have been starting to arrive!  I purposely avoid opening all the packages until they have all arrived, and then I just parse them out and drop them back in the mail the same day.  If I start opening them, I'll wind up with flies everywhere, which is not a good thing!  I'm going to give the flies until the middle of the month to arrive here, and then mail them back out.  Anything that arrives after that will just go back in the return envelope.  Hope you guys enjoyed tying this year!  I'm glad that some new tiers have jumped in the fun also!
