    Hello Don,        Sure have been enjoying your articles on fly patterns and techniques etc. I guess I better introduce my self. My name is Kevin Kirkelie and I’m a retired commercial tyer, and fly tying instructor at Eastern Oregon State College…… many moons ago. Been following the Streamers 365 , bought the first two books of patterns. Haven’t received the second one yet but am looking foreward to it. I was wondering if you still might be looking for a tyer for the Bucktail section of the “streamer 365 group.  I would be more then happy to donate a few patterns for this great cause. I believe truly  you’ll like the quality of the patterns That I would be sending. If the group is full……….. well maybe next time. Thanks for taking the time to read this email and hope to hear from you later on down the trail of life. Sincerely Kevin

      Hi Kevin;
      Thanks for your comment! I appreciate the fact that you have been enjoying my work & writing on the blog. As far as contributing to Streamers365.com goes, I’m not the one to ask – that would be Darren MacEachern in Toronto. pacres@gmail.com
      Always nice to hear from another tier…thanks for your dedication to the sport!

    We really enjoyed your tying, seminar, and banquet program last Saturday at CFFA, but I realized when I got home I have a question.
    You mentioned 2-3 times during the course of the day that there were 2 flies that you would fish exclusively in Maine if ever it came down to that. A gray ghost wooly bugger and another bugger that escapes me at the moment.
    I assumed that a recipe would be easy enough to find or figure but I’ve got to admit I can’t picture what a gray ghost wooly bugger would look like.
    How about a recipe or a picture ?
    Thanks. !

      Thanks for your comment and kind words, Paul! I’m glad you enjoyed everything I did during the event! Yes, it’s the Gray Ghost Wooly Bugger, and the Gray and White Bugger, both of which were originated by my brother and me back in 1987. I’ll eventually get to posting the recipes and write-up on the patterns. I will say the only difference between the Gray Ghost Bugger (with Danville #7 orange chenille body), and Gray and White Bugger is that the body on the Gray and White is white chenille. Otherwise they both have gray hackle and tail, and oval silver tinsel ribbing. Thanks again for your comment!
