Orvis catalog free flies...
I really like reading the fishing reports here but rarely post. Bugchucka catching a tuna last year should have won a Pulitzer or comparable award w/others a close 2nd.
Anyway, today I was about to trash the Orvis catalog that arrived in today's mail (lately I prefer Cabelas) but I noticed an offer for 12 free trout flies on the back outside cover. Granted you have to go to an Orvis retail store but I thought it sounded pretty good--I'm sure they've done some market testing--I definitely took a double take and plan on hitting a retail store by this weekend at the latest. I not a huge Orvis fan but neither do I dislike the stuff I have purchased from them.
Anyone redeem the offer? Did they let you pick any 12 of give some crap selection of woolly buggers?
Also anyone have pictures of favorite flies, flyboxes--I remember one from Flyfisherman magazine was posted but any favorite flies for rivers like the Saco/Ellis/Swift would be great for tying motivation.
