Default Some flies

It's been a while since I sat down and tied. Fly fishing and tying got me through a pretty rough time in my life about 18 years ago. I don't talk about it much, but this was my outlet...School, jobs, and kids sent it to the "back burner" for a few years, but recently I have felt "the call" back to the bench. We're in a temporary spot(my wife's grandparent's house) until January and her grandfather's old desk is the perfect set up.

Now if only I can convince Paymaster to let me participate in the GON fly swaps again...

Good looking flies. I need to find about 4 hours to sit down at the vice and crank out what I want for the next trip.
