The Gummy Shrimp is Easy. You just tell Tom that you need some Salt Flies for a trip to Ft. Myers in January. Great Work and I appreciate the hell out of it Tom! Oh yeah Check out your email I sent you the Sturgeon pics, don't forget to switch hands.

:D

Tom,

Excellent Flies, my friend. The head and eyes on those baitfish are really good
