What a Surprise, I have been away at the crappy cabin getting ready for my other vice "deer hunting" and have been away from the computer for days, so this is really a surprise for me, and I needed it after suffering through the realization that our football team has won it only game it's going to win this year so I am humbled to have won such a great prize, hand made  by members of BBG, THANK YOU GREG, and thanks for all of yalls congrats for winning.Greg must have known that I have started to use more flies and I'll have to report how they work for me. Once again Thanks.         LOFR

LOL Not a problem there Dick. Just recalling past memory to bring out the new line of booby flies. I'm telling you, this will be an epic line up of flies thanks to Greghopper. I have his flies and instruction loaded up in my Google Docs and local hard drive archive for safe keeping. I have hot neon and satin UV harden nail paint selected by the wife to test out. May need to get some fabric paint if the nail polish don't come out right after some experiment in my own tub. The kids are already saying, "What is that daddy?" When I said, "They're called Booby flies", my daughter said, "Awwww..that's so cute!" and my boy said, "Hehehehehe..booby..hehehehehehe.." Well, there you have it. It's the favorite flies of the family so far.
