Sudsy... tell John that I told him to make sure your kid goes home with a fly he tied.




Tam, you'll be glad to know the kid is now officially hooked. John took him behind the table and taught him how to tie a Clouser. Must have spent at least 1/2 hour working with him.

Thanks for the intro, Johns a heck of a nice guy and a very good teacher - Ryan really took right to him.



Could you e-mail these shots to him and let him know that as soon as Ryan got home he went straight his room to hang Johns fly on the wall and then to the vice and spent the entire night tying away

Your son was sitting right in front of mine yesterday in the free tying lesson for kids. He was doing a great job. Mine is hooked as well.

make it a point to check out Bob Mead.

if it's the same Bob Mead I think it is, his work is amazing. Hopefully he has one of his mosquito flies with him. I've got one downstairs packed away. Completely awesome!!

Hung out with Bob for a long time. You were right, great guy, lot of laughs. The mosquito fly is amazing. The $600 walking stick fly is so perfect i was tempted to squash it.

Ryan and I learned to tie one of his ladybug flies



He says hello
