    It's there anything swimming out there that doesn't love chartreuse? I got the color recommendation from Anil last year. Maybe I'll call my fly the Lemon & Lime Ling, or the Monster Mojito....

    How are the flies coming along guys? Three weeks until the general ling cod opener and about two weeks until the fly swap deadline. Who else is excited for some ling action?

    Got mine almost done- they are on tubes, so you can fish them as is or stack them on some other contrasting fly and have a monster offering. Just got to add another layor of epoxy. Should be sent in this week.

    I'm hammered with work this week, so I'll finish my flies Saturday and get them in the mail asap.

    Sounds good Steve. I'm thinking some time in mid may we might have to get together and do some fishing before I go to Florida. Let me know what you think.

    i've been a total slacker with this swap. i will not be able to get the flies to jonathan in time, but will get the flies to everyone in the swap. send me a PM with your address and i'll get them in the mail next week.

    got the hooks, weight, materials, and mental picture of the fly... now i just gotta get back home to the vise.

    I take it everybody has found out that Saltwater Yak is becoming a thing of the past? EP Fibers will probably be the best replacement from what I've found so far.
