    Good looking ties. Just picked myself up a clear 18 compartment box for all the dries I'm tying.

    Nice work, cube!

    I'll send you a PM with my address and you can get those llamers in the mail.

    I really like those stoneflies... I'm going to have to tie a few of those.
    Pursue happiness with diligence.

    Maybe we should have a "Pile-o-Llamers Swap"!?

    The only tricky part to those stones was the tail - its harder than you'd think it is - the whole thing wants to spin... The trick I found is to clamp the second to the last bead of the chain in the vise, tie in a dubbing loop of about 10 inches in between that bead and the last one. Whip finish the dubbing loop.You can now use that loop to pull down on the chain and apply pressure so it doesn't spin as build up the space between the two beads to tie your tail material on top of.
