    Listened to this yesterday, on my way back from Philly. what a crazy story. Didn't realize the top echelon of ornamental fly tiers were actually a secretive cabal, patronizing an international network of black market feather thieves and merchants.

    Brk trt, I'm looking at you brother.

    Where's beetle anyway? He would have been all over this.

    Quit rubbing it in Tomfly’s face. It’s not his fault he can’t read.

    Call me old fashioned, but I prefer to listen to my radio shows.....

    Mudbug — we both know Beetle doesn’t subscribe to the liberal agenda of media outlets like NPR. In other news, I know that he’s not dead or in jail as I invited him to float on sunday and got ‘read’ receipts from him in the text thread....
