Dear BUD and DALE,

 

euh in a sense more for BUD then YOU 'my dearest enemy to my heart' ...as BUD is a salmon flytyer and YOU are a 'dry fly purist' ...

 

soooooo this is more for BUD and the 'material freaks'...

 

psttttttttt 'my best friend enjoyed' every minute of it'......I a bit less...as 'none' of the materials became mine or or or are mine (let that be clear)....the only 'one' who was privileged to 'jump' into the 'skin' of a quetzal was my best friend 'FROGGIE' hahahahahhaaa

 

ah 'HE' was there all the time...euh togheter with me...wink !!!

 

Geert

I had to be 14 or 15 years old, the early morning fog hadn't burned off the Connecticut river yet. I remember sitting under a big willow tree and throwing a black hula popper out into the misty unknown. It was deathly quiet except for the occassional chug of my lure, and then a giant "whoosh" and a tug, and then nothing..but my heart pounding in my ears. I'll never forget that moment of my youth.

Love dd

Did you tie it Jeff?

Those are something. In the '80's there was firemen in Ft. Collins. CO that tied spun hair bugs. His name was Tim England.

Hope you're well. The forum needs a Baron.
