Hey guys just stopped by the local Gander Mtn at the tail end of the going out of business sale. Nothing really good left at this location. Except I stumbled across a maybe 12" by 18" 6" deep box full of small bags of flies. Each bag was an assortment of dries, nymphs, emergers and a smattering of spinners... in sizes 18 down to 24 (the sizes I freaking hate to tie). $4.75 per bag! I thought of JT and said to myself "Pffffft probably a bunch of Zug Bugs". But no I started to poke through and they were real flies that I would use. I got 10 bags. $51 with tax and I got 250 flies. I sorted them out and out of the nymphs I got 25 hares ear and 35 pheasant tails. That was worth the 50 bucks right there. Dries are almost all mayflies but that's ok. If you're close to a GM store it would be worth stopping by to see if they have the same thing.

Yeah they have everything that a damn bead freak could ever ask for. Maybe even a concrete block :roll:

Yeah Jason,
When you tie on a Bead head JG and wade into the beaverdam,that giant muskrat will will chew on your waders until he gets down to the meat----------He don't like bead freaks either :evil: :evil:
