Someone told me yesterday that I 'have made it to the big time' if I'm getting requests for donations. I'm not sure if I've made it to the 'big time' but I like the sound of it. I have recently donated a few hours of guiding for an auction and today I tied a dozen flies for a local school auction.
In the list of flies are 2 popsicles (for color and to attract attention), 1 monster articulated bug, 1 medium foam bug, 2 foam beetles, 1 caddis dry, 1 bead head soft hackle pheasant tail, 1 mouse, 1 braided worm, 1 crayfish, 1 streamer, and 1 damsel nymph.
Its a filthy collection of flies that is sure to land some fish in the warmer months. I hope the winner enjoys them.
