awesome. I can't wait :lol

The one thing my wife and I agreed on, is to not go ballistic for her birthday. We've had way to many friends go crazy and drop several hundred bucks on presents, decorations, pie, etc.

Does it have to float all the time?  Or can a muddlerish kind of thing work?

I'll leave that up to everyone else to decide. I mean dry flies don't float ALL the time.
