Hi everyone. Long time no post. Hope everyone is doing well.

I wanted to share a set of fishing flies I tied for an old friend. He taught me how to tie my first fly, we worked together in a fly shop for years. We had a blast working and fishing together. He now ownes a shop in Idaho.

I know the flies aren't easy to make out in the packed riker. Hopefully he's pleased with the assortment and fishes them.

Take care,
Shannon

What a great set!
Fantastic tying. They would look great in the shop but they deserve to be fished!

Welcome back Shannon! Those are all beauties, I'm jealous of your friend. Are you accepting applications for a new friend to send flies to?

Thank you for the encouragement and kind feed back, Spey Pagers. I've had a challenging year with health complications. I hope to post more soon. Hope you're all doing well.

Always. Hit me up. I don't charge for flies, let's trade.
