    I have this big bag of SWEET, SWEET red Marabou. I don't want it anymore. I'll send it to you free if you send me back three flies that you make with it.

    Just in case multiple people want this almost free Marabou, how about you reply with a picture of (approximately) what you could do with this stuff?

    Never heard of the onions, did it help to catch fish. My dad taught me about the Shad when I was a kid back in Massachusetts. We new when the run started because it coincided with the first dandilions.
