It's been a bear of a week.

Monday late day work panic and evening computer crash

Tuesday and Wednesday, in Calgary arguing with contractors

Thursday, meetings all day then hockey (dang shootout loss in a booooring game)

The good news is my Doc 'did the usual physical today

and said I'm in no peril if imminent demise

So I should be able to get the electronic version of the newsletter to Scratch tomorrow.

 

For the Iron Fly Tyer

Yes Master Dale returns to defend his title.

Challenger 1

Mike (Doc) Montieth (already whining that he dosen't tie dry flies)

Challenger 2

Alex (Yo Ballast) Del Hiero (back in town and actually working)

 

Required flies: one each of nymph, wet fly and dry fly.

Tyers bring all their junk(who knows what will come in handy)

Mystery Material: (already chosen)

 

I can hardly wait

Oh yeah... almost forgot... Chairman Dave... revealing the secret ingredient.

 

I'll Fickr some more up later on. Post 'em if you got 'em... and yeah... Alex's Streamer scored a perfect score. The only critique we had was that it shoulda used Red Biots... or Jungle Cock.

 

Dang... now I gotta go buy some Purple B*stard Fur... and judging by the look on Doc's face there... he never wants to see it again. :D
