    You all produced damsels prettier than mine, but it will catch fish. Dark amber, silver lined glass beads for eyes. uploadfromtaptalk1372743963790.jpg

    Tying the last one now, then probably need to tie 2-3 more to make sure everyone gets top quality. Should be in the mail no later than Wednesday.

    I finished mine Tuesday. They will be mailed today. Looking forward to the patterns everyone else tied. I will be going to Leech Lake (White Pass) the end of July. Damsel patterns are one of the recommended patterns.

    1/2 way there, and they will be finished tonight.

    Don't be fooled by the size, these little sparse damsels slay.

    And to think I was going to be last. I had enough home stuff going on that it was messing with my fly tying.

    Did you receive them yet? I sent them priority mail. Maybe I should have just driven over, dropped them off, and hit a spring creek? :)

    Yeah, I'd like to maybe fish them before next spring when the damsels are thick again.
