Tie it! Fishi it! Modify it! But most of all enjoy it! . The learning and experimenting are the best part and the most fun. CSJ60 - good looking ties, but remember in the water they will look the same as in the vise. Thanks for trying the tie out and nice job indeed. I too am interested in the materials you used.
Paxton, post em up or email a photo to me. I'd love to see them. 4 - 5 inches is what I use from the beach.
Juro - thanks again.
John - I see birthday wishes are in order - happy belated birthday. I particularly enjoyed the photo of you and your daughter. There's no better way to pass it on - memories!
