Real nice again Matthew,

For those of us that have seen pictures of Matt and his lovely bride, what's the over/under that the baby will be a ginger?
Haha. Just doing my part to propagate the species.

One left and I'll have them all.

Stay tuned....
I checked back here because 1) photosuckit has returned the pictures, and 2) I'd like to chase some of these guys soon but......

I know you finished the "slam" and caught that last species, right Matt? Did I miss that post? Thanks for the introduction to these cool fish.

you need to tie some proper flies for them, LA. think they'd eat a nice little rabbit stripper with a lil wee deer hair head. olive perhaps. but i'm with you on this, update this shit. its a great thread.

Ya know.... I was thinkin' the same thing. A miniature version of my smalljaw swap submission. However, I've been busier tying floaty things as per instructions of Matt and his book. And I haven't forgotten about you and your flies.... yet.

This may be my favorite thread.

Makin some kickass lemaonade out of shitty Alabama lemons.


I think the "BM" on this mound actually stands for "bowel movement"; one of Franzen's, if I'm not mistaken...

I did. I will update this soon. I’m almost done with re-doing the slam again in 2018.
