"HI Shawn,

Thank you for the response. As this is a personal project for Richard, would you be willing to lend us some flies and in return Richard would give you the finished photographs? Your work is incredibly detailed and is exactly what we are looking for, to include it in the shoot would be great.

Many thanks, let me know if you would be interested.

Adam"

if it's something you would perhaps like to do I will happily put your name forward.

you know, providing you're fawesome at glueing feathers to hooks.

I don't know - you could really be missing the boat here. Seems like he's kind of a big deal - he's got a lackey to do his begging, and a "bespoke photographic space."

You forgot to smash the barb down on that hook.

Pro tip: I always do it before I put it in the vise. Good habit to get into, saves a little time and frustration on the river.

fuck. is it that bad?
when I first acquainted myself with you muppets I think it was like 65c or some shit.
I remember we used to hold out for 68-70c before we did our big seppo shop.

and this is why I overcharge everybody for everything.

pay me to be. it's the west austrian way.
go on... ask anyone else in the country.


fly went for $300ossie.

baron's been 'trimmed to hook shank diameter'.
and I actually liked that one. twat bastard.
