Thumbs up Nice shop Ryan

Finally got up north during my lunch break to Teds up in Lynwood. Good to meet you Ryan and I was impressed by the selection and service. That was the first time in a while I can remeber going to a shop and getting all the materials I needed. Will admit I shyed away from there for awhile as most shops I have been to that cater to gear and fly fisherman have always been a little light on the fly tying materials. Not the case there and I will most definitely be back.

By the way I just tied up a few flies using the Bowtyer head and body strips. I am so excited I never have to spin a muddler head ever again. The thinly cut reindeer strips plamered on the hook and trimmed look better than anything I have ever been able to spin. Hope they keep stocking that stuff...

Sean, it was a pleasure to meet you as well.

And thank you very much for the kind remarks in regards to the shop. We do our best...

And when it comes to tying materials, I consider it a failure when a customer comes in and asks for a certain material and we do not have it.

That BowTyer reindeer hair stuff is great...you know, I hate spinning deer hair and it has been years since my last attempt. I saw that stuff in the catalog and could not resist!! Although, a co-worker did roll his eyes at me when I showed him the stuff as it almost looks like a gimmick! Glad to hear it worked well!!!!

Ah, the memories ...

Ryan, I can actually remember when "Ted's" was a pile of moldy rubber boots, some lead and stuff that you really had to 'paw through' to find something you'd want to purchase. Yes, I am that "old."

Sounds like "you've come a long way Baby."

Maybe we should start a new thread - Who HATES to spin deer hair?? Actually, what I hate most is cleaning up afterwards

Anyway, I gotta agree with Sean - they've become my main stop for fly gear as they often have materials that the flyshops don't stock (like BowTyer).

Guess I'll have to try those reindeer strips too!

hasta,

DS
