Fantastic work Dan!  It's soon GP season.  I've got 2 more skins still hanging if you ever need more.  May have to go "collect" a few more this fall too.

Beautifully tied Dan!!! Sure would like to learn how to tie the consistently great heads(and flies) you turn out! Too nice to fish.

I have been tying some rats for the fall after seeing Charles collection.  I am sure all the flies a  guy would need is a collection of the various Rat patterns.
Red rat

Grey Rat

Silver Rat

Rusty Rat

Copper Rat

Ok upon watching this grow my initial thought was to put all the flies in one topic but being practical and seeing how fast ot was growing it would be a shame to see so many great flies lost due to  to many pages to surf through to see them.  I have take the time this morning to move each to its own topic so it allows a nice quick easy search.  this was mentioned to me at the beginning my some of you and Nope I was not smart enough to listen until it started to fill up.  I will see if I get a chance over the weekend Maybe I will do the trout  one nesxt.  I think I akwnoedged the tiers when i modified but if you see any I missed or messed up PM me and I iwll fix them up.  Sorry for the rush of new messages to sortthrough but we figured I better do this now before it grew to 200 pages and noone would go through them all .

Good call Gary and I'll lock this topic so no more patterns get added here.
