What an awesome fly.  Glad someone took the time to capture the craftsmanship in tying one of them in high definition.

I wouldn't want to fish it, though, - it really belongs in a shadowbox prominently displayed in your trophy room.

 :lol

In all seriousness that is something that I would absolutely love to have. A shadow box with a squirmy Wormy fly in it. With a brass placard and the year. I mean, it would be so ridiculous hung on a wall, that it would be incredible. In fact, I'm going to Shadowbox an  :eggscrambler

.....next to a framed photo of you with the classic "grip and grin" pose, but with you holding a tree branch, instead of a fish, with that fly snagged on it.

Thanks for this.  I have updated my Avatar and Personal Text on my profile accordingly

Were you living lining bait that day?  Did you drop your flyrod over the side that day?  Do you even own a flyrod?

So back in the day, my friend bought a Bassboat, convinced me that I needed to get a spinning rod because he banned fly rods on his boat. He brought a boat rod on the boat because he wanted to troll for fish using a Gigantic red and white spoon.

So that rod was dangling off the back of his 17 foot aluminum bassboat, the fight with that stump was epic. When we realized what it was I put on my non fly fishing vest, and posed for the greatest fishing picture ever.

cool note about the stump: it was from the quabbin and had initials carved in on it. I'm looking for the photograph of it.

You just gave away my secret fly, Ryan. Never tied with them, but bought some for the stockings at Bass Pro last weekend.

I'm  in. No clue as to choices... Pick something and I'll figure it out.

How about "fly must contain something Ryan shot this year"?

I'll bring a box tomorrow and you guys can split it up.
