I think Ryan is right. It was only put in because some guys voted for a fly before they knew about the 3 vote system. I actually think it should be taken off now as surely, you shouldn't be able to change your vote once cast?maybe…. But think about this…..you ‘um and ah’ about a fly but don’t actually give it a vote but then when you do vote and the voting is revealed you noticed that the tier you nearly voted for ,fair play to them, actually voted for you ….what do you do? ”change vote “
ALL GOOD FUN AT THE END OF THE DAY
Don’t worry, the change your vote option was just temporary to allow those to still cast three votes having submitted before seeing my note .Personally agree with the above statement…..it also allows an entry tier to be more ‘creative’ and ‘far out their’ and less ‘play it safe’ with their entry as I think that you are more likely to have the second or third vote for coming up with something different and cutting-edge,which is a good thing .
Not sure about this ‘Chang your mind’ thing though…. I saw one vote going to me and then removed before being given to my mate Snap T which was very painful to witness .
i actually got it off someone online that was using it for wedding invites cards hence the unusual colourIf I were to choose one, it would have been Ryan's, if I would have to choose a second, I would have a hard time choosing between SnapT's rainbow or Fruin's fulldressed, but thanks God, I can choose both....
-Thát one Ryan, it is just so perfectly beautiful, Fruins is as well, but thát icy marabou, woooow, it looks amazing, and will even more in the water, so much that I think that I would actually fish it, if I had made it....
I actually doesn't like marabou, it is way too big on a dry "show" fly, and it is way too small on a wet fly in the water, but the way that it has been applied here, I can only imagine that the fish will stand in line for a bite of thát, what is that marabou called, what's the brand, and where to buy....??? ;- ) ;- ) ;- )
I absolutely love the spey style, sooo cool and relaxed, and even more fishy, and there's some very good examples of thát this month, but I must say that I was blown away by the above three.
-Just to say that I love the way that the Spey has been developed here this month, I'm new to this, but I have been around the "scene" this last year, and I have never seen Speys like these, both nwsalar, Jockiescott, Mattytree, GaryD, Andrzej and Ian's are as gorgeous flies as flies can get, and a lot of the rest are as well really, great theme Ian, possibly the best outcome I have seen from a TOTM (< and I have looked a few years back, prior to joining this year...).
FYI - a salmon is gone with the fly, I can tell it's working on atlantics
