the problem with sweatshop flies is not there material composition, quality of work, or even effectivness of the patterns. it lies deeper, in a void of creativity, that will surely deny the art that inspires us all.

I'll throw a pic in... However, after reading some of the posts and appreciating the sentiments, if for some reason one of our pics is chosen we can always elect to pay it forward and set up an auction to benefit Sage or some other noble cause with the winnings. Stick it to the man to the end and turn that frown upside down.

[report]How about some bonefish flies.

If I win they are going up for auction and the money is going to benefit Sage.

If said posting of nude women includes her holding fish AND a large set of antlers (Non-photoshopped), then it can stay. Otherwise, No nudity on the Drake board. Skimpy? OK. Side-boob? Approved. -nemo

If Meatwad doesn't win for the Woly Dugers photo, there is no justice.
