Truth be told, I haven't had time to tie a single fly
in almost two months. Between home mortgage rates falling below 6% on 30 year term loans, building a new home, trying to sell ours (and finding a buyer who doesn't want to move in 'tomorrow'), long trip to France and Italy it's been a LONG Summer.
Still have all the Waddingtons, just need to get off my butt and tie some Willie Guns. The couple of shanks (Ryan was most gracious and also sent me a bunch) I've done are far easier than doing them up as tube flys. Impressions only here but the hookups done on the shanks have all been far more positive than that on tube flys.
