Did I tell you I'm not in the same league as these guys? Here's a shot of John Sheets (sp?)- notice the intense concentration

John was tying an extended body callibaetis, or so he says, I had to use the eXtreme Stop Motion on my camera just to get these fleeting images. Ah, the wild fly tyer in his natural element. There was some talk about a post, some hackle whirled in circles and then he handed me a fly which he said was a reject. So I stole it.
Also there was Kevin Foerster of Lovells Fly Tyer fame. He was tying up some Au Sable Skunks, which I should have been paying attention to as I fish this pattern a lot, and his was different from mine. It was well tied.

All in all it was good low key fun, I learned nothing as I refused to set down my bobbin and watch, and Greta, the keeper of the Armory says I can come back when I learn not to cry out in pain.
