Anyone interested in some free mop fly yarn? If so, let me know and I will send some your way. I have tied a few mop flies using the car mitts you buy at auto parts stores, but for the most part they don't have too many natural colors. I looked into buying the mop fly yarn they sell in fly stores, but it is like $6 for a tiny package. Instead of doing that I went to Joann and bought a 220 yard roll of blanket yarn for $7. It is the exact same thing and it is obviously more than I could use in 20 lifetimes. (The ball of yarn is the size of a watermelon.) The ball I got is called Sonoma and is a mix of sand, light olive, white and brown colored yarn. Here is a link to the material. http://www.joann.com/bernat-blanket-big-ball-yarn/zprd_13490602a.html#histogram
(Sonoma is the fifth row down in the far left column.)
I'll ship anyone who is interested as much material as they want. In return all I ask is you tie up a few of your favorite flies and send them my way. You decide what you tie: buggers, nymphs, crab or shrimp patterns, etc... I like trying out other tiers flies and this seems like a good way to do so. Just shoot me a PM on here and I will send the yarn your way.
