Osprey,

I'm glad the post brought back good memories for you and hope you get to create more.

I'm going to put these flies into frames for the kids and will, hopefully, tie some more before I get them out on the water in warmer weather. I may have to get a Michigan license to do that, but it will be worth it.

Great pics Dave ... wait until they get their 1st fish with "Poppa". The innocent curiosity of a young child is awesome!

Andrew

Thanks!

In Detroit as I type this reply. I've gotten a pair of frames that have one side to hold the print and a smaller side to hold the fly and I will be giving them to the grands this evening.

Can't wait to see the look on their faces!!

Dave

Dave ..

I always find it great how special a bond kids can have with their grandparents. My lil ones can't wait to head down south and see both sets and they basically forget mom and dad. Who can blame em; instead of trying to explain to them how important healthy foods are for them they get sugar cereal for bfast and ice cream for lunch, any toy they want (w/in reason) etc ... works for the wife and I as well as we have free baby sitters for 10 days

Enjoy and safe travels

Gave the flies and photos to the kids last night. It was even better than I had hoped for.

Christopher held his close and ran to everyone showing off his "fish-catcher" and picture with Poppa . He wanted to know if he could put it on the wall in his room.

Izzy was a little less excited than that, but still happy and sat on my lap pointing out details of the fly, asking if she could do it again when they came to visit.

Both of them were asking about going our fishing with Poppa when the weather warmed up.

Bringing back memories of time spent with my brother and Grandfather.

Great time last night and looking forward to spending more time with them today and in the future.

My daughter loves to help tie flies. She is five and cant really tie them on her own yet but she will select the materials and we'll make up flies together. Other times I'll give her sheets of foam (the cheap kind from the craft stores in a wide array of colors) She cuts them in to tiny pieces for hoppers. She has a whole bucket full of foam chopped up. We have an Angora Lionhead rabbit that she brushes and saves the hair for dubbing. I swear its the best dubbing I own!

Nice - Hope you frame that picture x2 - one for you and one for Kassidy to have when she's older.

Also looks like you have a bench to be really jealous of!

Anybody else out there have pics to share?

Dave, that's a fine idea. Believe I'll do just that. Aren't grandchildren just the best thing going? I think it's great you've got your two tying, they will always remember sitting on poppa's lap at your bench. My son and daughter both have a box full of ties they did growing up. Good times.

Occasionally I come up with a good one. Can't take full credit for this one, though. KeithS suggested clipping the points and sending the flies home with the grands, and Rolf suggested framing and hanging the pics in my tying area. I just sorta combined the two suggestions........
