12-11-2003, 05:28 PM
7 is included with me unless i get two of each
Brad and his friend

Sean, what we've typically been trying to do lately is get one extra fly for the meister, and one extra fly from each participant to be put together in a group and used at the fly shows for auction to support the site.
If you want, you can gather the extra flies for the auction and then mail them on to me or another moderator who can get them to the fly shows. Just ask if you have more questions.
12-11-2003, 06:06 PM
i'll send the extras to john or pete
so you guys need to tie 9 flies then
12-12-2003, 09:52 AM
Sean, sorry, I forgot to bring up the topic of auction flies. Send them to me and I'll forward them on.
