That wind does get nasty. Were you at Settles?

Now... Sabs v Flyers!

Great reports thanks for all the details on flies and strategy. Will probably hit Island Ford tomorrow since it is closest to home..

Sometimes, especially on flies designated for floating a nymph underneath, I will use EP fibers instead of elk hair for wings, or use it as my post on parachute's.
