Re: WTO 2010 - World Tuscany Open

Hello friends,

the dead line to send the flies is September 30th and the postal office stamp makes proof. I really hope some of you excellent tyers will take time to participate to the contest.

Look forward to see some of your works.

Kind regards

Hi Mark, nice to hear from you as well. C'mon, sit at your tying desk and make few flies for the contest. And tell it to your friends.

Keep well my friend
