After tying 100 dozen flies, I finally got around to doing some stonefly nymphs. Been tying now everyday for around 8 weeks.

100 dozen honestly scares me...I fill some orders for a local shop,but my biggest order was only 2 gross, and that was quite a hassle,couldn't even imagine pulling off 4 times that,especially on a set time schedule.

Not really on any time schedule. I am retired on disability and this is a good way for me to pass my winter when not fishing or golfing. I still need to get my license yet for this year. When I get them I will get out fishing.

I love the use of biot on stones. I tried some weaving last year and got annoyed with it ;) Great looking flies. I am finding myself using more rubber legs these days, but feel the biot to be just as effective.
