Thanks to everyone who donated files and The Bear's Den for donating fly wallets.

Special thanks to Slinger for organizing and collecting all the files, you'll find some of his ties in this bunch. I've attached a pic but it really doesn't do justice to the collection. It appears that even with a good digital camera I still can't take a decent photo.

Just want to say thanks to the people that donated flies for this auction, Sean Mcdermott, Adrian, Doc Duprey, JFBasser, Capt. Ray, and French Creek. Oh, I threw in a few too. There are 3 identical collections of 21 or 22 flies each in a Finsport fly wallet. Here`s a chance for those of you who don`t tie to get a comprehensive assortment of proven killers.

Alright, I've forgotten how to start a formal auction so let's run it in this thread.

How about we start the bidding @ $45 - that's dirt cheap considering the work that's gone into these collections.

The auction will end a week from today @ 10pm

Bid high - bid often

I'm supposed to have 3 flies in there too but have not had the time to sit down and tie. I'll send them by mail to whoever wins the auction when I can get some time to tie some up.

Thanks for doing this Slinger! JimW, we appreciate you taking the reins on this one.

This is my first auction, just want to make sure I'm in it still. Do I need to go to another site, or will this do?

You're still in! We'll just run the auction in this thread.

3 magic real deep eels I assume. Sweet!
