Two days left for Steelhead Fly Tying Contest

Get your entries down to the shop, pop them in the mail, overnight them from wherever! The first of many fly tying contests is ending and we want to impress the judges at Hareline Dubbin. Check out the details of the contest here. You’ve still got two days, crank the a/c and get on the bench. No a/c, get a bucket, fill it with ice and beers and submerge your legs under the vise.

Check out more great entries.–CD
