    Not many greater sights than shredded flies after fishing.

    I've been trying to come up with ways to make these more durable. They are a simple tie so easy to replace but I would like them to last longer. I would also like to find a stronger curved nymph hook to tie them with. Half the time the hook gets bent to hell before the fly wears out

    More importantly, I want to fish with Ira and TP if they are tearing up flies slaying fish!!!!

    I think I'll be tying up some copies of Nicks leach, when I get them. Glad we waited for Brians flies, this is going to be a great swap. Ira those hooks are umpqua C400bl jig fly. I get those and the slotted beads from J. Stockard (couldn't find any local)

    I just got my flies today. They look great and I see all of them are worth reproducing. Thanks for padding my chironomid/indicator box and i look forward to pictures so I know who to thank & for what.

    OK, OK, I finally finished putting up the photos! For some reason I lost Brian's photos, but I'm fairly sure I know which mids were his and I think I can pull them out of my box and take new photos.

    Sorry about that Brian.

    Man that took along time Brian. Must be that Canadian post thing. You are now forgiven for the lateness. Heck, I've already caught fish on your bugs.
