    I have 3 beetles done so far. I've tied ones that work for me at Rocky Ford. I should be done in time to mail on Tuesday.

    dfl-- I don't think anyone knows that because they haven't seen them yet!! :)

    OK Beetlemania freaks, it's time to get them in the mail to me soon!! I still have 4 to tie up myself. I ended up doing a waterboatman (sorta cheated). If you "grease" it well, it will float....for a little while anyway! I have had luck with it with a short quick strip. I'll be watching my mail!!! As I stated before, I will attempt to take photos and post them. -Larry

    Is a toe-tag a fly? I only signed up for a beetle swap. Beetles are winging their way west as of 30 minutes ago.

    Toe tags today and probably S.A.S.E. tomorrow. geez.....

    Twelve Green Pubescent Beetles ready for new homes Larry, and I don't think you'll want me to send them to your old place :)

    I just got mine to Dry Fly Larry. I am excited to try these patterns. Some of the patterns look to good to use, if there is such a thing.
    Looks to good to use, never .

    PM address please, flies in the mail tomorrow morning. I wanted to retie a couple that were a little wonky. I also tested them in water and they float like a cork.

    I just received three (3) more packages in the mail today! They are all awesome. I got Richard Torres, Zens, and Kelvins. I think everyone will have fun with these! And, Kelvin, thanks for the big orange bug!!
