Dreaming about a border crossing

It'll be awhile. Meantime I can put together some frames that'll end up in Miramichi Salmon Assoc. fundraisers. This one tested my Word skills to the max (I use Word to make the backgrounds for most of my framings, then print them out on 140 pound watercolor paper. Good to keep the old brain from freezing up completely.)

Gary, Even though the work is not quite finished, it looks fabulous! Can't wait to see the frame you choose and finished layout with flies. Beautiful work for a great cause.

Are those your flies? They are beautiful! I am going to try tying some mini Celtic Beauty's to swing on the Madison in the fall.

Yup, my flies. Celtic Beauty has hooked every salmonid in the northeast, don't know why it won't work out west!

Stellar work Gary! You never cease to amaze us. Hang in there buddy! Thanks for not posting a closeup on the Celtic Beauty. I break out in a cold sweat and my right hand starts to shake.
