Ronn and I are doing a Thai and Tie Friday night .... I'm thinking we need to have a theme.

 

Maybe a McGinty theme tying ... lets take the McGinty to a salmon fly.

 

I wish Val could be here with one of his inspirations.

 

Garren, you could weave a McGinty body !

Reporting in ...

I choose spicey cashew and Ronn had Jungle Curry or JC as we say in tying smile.png

 

Then on to the tying desk ... Ronn went to the "Manual" for a McGinty

As Ronn does, he did it his own way in about 10 minutes and then moved on to something more his "Artistic" side

Can anyone guess what this patch is ... It's one of Ronn's favorite feathers

I played with the McGinty ideas in a Salmon fly .. wanted some yellow and black tippets so put it aside for later.

And picked up a partiall done fly and started into a wing

And then ran out of steam ... Done for 2017

 

Had some good chat about WB and the books.

 

Texted with Dale a bit at the end and then wondered about running a live stream for the next one ... anyone interested?
