    I received Trouttater's Smoky Mountian Candies today. Another very nice set of flies!

    hey Griff......throwing flies in mail tomorrow. I just finished and a bit disapointed in them. I had a really hard time with the hackle. I tried the whiting 100 pk and they were very hard to work with. They kept breaking before I could tie them off.......anyways, they are on the way and if anyone is unsatisfied I will gladley tie them up something else......

    got to do any fishing yet? Weather in Ohio has been CRAPPPPPY with a capital "SH",so I haven't had any chance. The ODNR did release 4000 rainbow into one of our spring fed local lakes last week....hope to get a shot at them this coming week.

    I'll keep an eye out for them Buckeye. I'm sure they are fine. I need to get mine done soon! All of you have done a really good job getting your flies tied early. I've gotten slammed at work again so I have not tied in a while. I might get a chance this weekend.

    The only chance I had to go fishing was a few weeks ago. I hooked into a 20+ rainbow on the West Prong of Little River. Talking to Daniel at LRO we've concluded it was one of the big stocker fish that swam up into the park. It gave my 3 wt a good workout and pumped enough adrenaline into my system to revive a dead man!!!

    I received Buckeye's Quill Gordon's today. Very nice flies Buckeye!

    I am afraid I may have to extend the due date a little. I still have not had time to get mine done, Teresa has been sick so she is not done either and we are waiting on a set from Midgeman. If it is OK with everyone, I would like to extend the due date till April 30th. 14 hour work days make sitting at a vise almost impossible.

    Yall let me know if the extension is OK with you.

    No problem Griff...

    Just as long as they're in my mailbox before June 1st. I'd hate to head towards the Smokies without the ultimate smoky mountain collection

    Same here Griff , no problem. Haven't read anything from Midgeman in awhile. Hope he is still participating. I've been tying alot of streamers and bass patterns lately, My trout flyboxes are still pretty well stocked.

    I am still here folks. Just posted my woes in the wrong thread. Things at work have been super crazy over the last month and I am running behind. If you all don't mind, I can get my flies in the mail either tomorrow or on Friday. Sorry about the delay. If you all want to go ahead without me because of the delay I understand; but I would like to participate. Normally I try and get these things done well in advance, but this time I dropped the ball. Can you PM me and address to send the flies? Thanks.
