Had a fun weekend tying flies at the Lancaster fly fishing show this weekend. Stuck with dees the entire time. Had a friend give me some hooks and told me he wanted two flies tied on them and the hooks were mine. I tied two mini dee flies on them that are about an 1 1/4" long. They were a challenge!! One of the vendors nearby my table was a painter and he asked if he could paint a two of my flies, so of course i said yes. He painted two of each fly and gave me one for each fly...very cool!! Also scored some free green wing teal feathers that were harvested in mexico!!

Thank you for the kind words everyone!! Those two little guys were tough to tie and keep the proportions right, but it was a good challenge!!

You're a stand up guy ,Frank. I have the greatest respect for your beautiful (fishy as all get out) flies and the work you do to support the Spey Community and the Salmon River fishery.
