Paul Harper, Ontario.
I tied up and used your Henchman fly. First fish I caught with it
was a goldfish at the in-laws pond in Alberta. I also managed to
lose a couple brookies on it in Alberta.
Don Malone, Tennessee.

Frank Dawson, California.
Great site, love the carp flyfishing info. Its pretty hard to find
elsewhere, I hope to try it here in California, Thanks for all the
Richard Maguire, Ontario.
This is a great site. I have never been fly fishing, and I would
like to try it. Very helpful information in this site. I will be
fishing the Grand River, any information on fishing this area is
great. I know an Irishman and a Scotsman can get along.
Raleigh Whalen, Cheyenne, WY
Ian- You have a great site. I am just getting into fly-fishing for
carp and you gave me some good pointers. A 55 pound state record
was shot with a bow & arrow last week and I couldn't help but think
how fun that would be on a fly rod.
Bob Jude, (address unknown)
Tricks & tips; great stuff, information with humor, spent way too
much time on this site, but will be back regularly.
John Lorimer, Newfoundland, Canada
Hi Ian, Great site, hope to use your flies in Eagle River Labrador
Harry Lawson, Hamilton, Ontario
Hi Ian I just read that you are coming down to entertain us at Hamilton
Fly Tiers so I checked out your site again. There is lots to look
at . . . great site. Being a of Scottish ancestry my fishing motto
is (road kill make great fly's) and the price is right.
Barry Jacobson, Tasmania, Australia
I just had to enter. The idea of a Scotsman giving something away
for free is too much to resist. Great site, by the way.
Too funny! Your site should come with a 'serious laughing hazard'
warning on the front page. I used your tips last year and landed
my first steelhead on a small puke fly. Thanks!
The Wozman, Bracebridge, Ontario.
Glen Fiddich? White puke flies? Free flies draw? Count me in. I
love the site.
James B, St Thomas, Ont
If its free its for me. Great site first time visitor.
Mike Newton. (address unknown)
Great site well laid out.
Paul Becker, Ontario, Canada.
Ian, Happy New Year. Its January the 3rd and Im thinking fishing
(not working) and surfing your educational and entertaining site.
#8 puke flies sound good. I need to get out and do some fishing
and this would be a good motivator.
Deirdre, Dublin, Ireland.
Listen you miserable Scotsman, I've entered this draw a few times,
more than a few times, and never won. My time has come...deliver!
Len Komishin, Alberta, Canada.
Hi Mr. James a friend told me about your site, I have to agree with
him. I also love your site.

Giving flies away: great idea. I'll definitely be back.

I'll have to keep on fishing to try and catch some free flies.
Angela W, Florida, USA.
I was in tears. Funny stuff. Great site. If I win, I will give them
away. I don't fly-fish.
Marcos Palmeria, Portugal.
About your site, I think is very clean and the sophisticated look

Company, so I know what I am saying.
Ed Mercado Ft. Pierce, Florida USA.
Please enter me in the draw. Thank you, Ed
Lee Willinger, Oklahoma, USA
Mr. James; I am an avid smallmouth fisherman and can use all the
help I can get. Your site is very entertaining and informative and
I plan to review your recommendations regarding smallmouth. Hopefully
I will be introduced to your flies by winning some. Thanks.
John Taylor, Cambridge, Ontario.
Well, like I said last month, I ran out and bought a fly rod after
reading your site (great info!). Now, having mastered the roll cast...hooking
my ankle, a tree and the neighbour's dog in the process...I am ready
to win. Cheers!
Brett Groves, Leamington, Ontario
I made your site my homepage, and have been laughing at some of
the content ever since. Plenty of big carp in Hillman march, and
a few in my backyard pond, but no luck! The tree swallows don't
seem to like when I cast away out there either. Great website, keeps
R. Rodriguez, Texas, USA
Ian great stuff. First time visitor.
Rob Nelmes (address unknown at the moment)
I just read your book, pretty funny. Found your web address at the

Hello my name is Dany from Romania and thanks for this chance to
win the flies. Thanks very much.
Paul Robinson, Cambridge, Ontario
Over twenty years ago, I tried my cousins fly rod when we were in
Algonquin Park. I haven't been back to the park since, nor have
I used a fly rod since.

I have learned so much from reading everything on it and had a good
laugh too =)
Art James, London, Ontario
Mr. James, I've been a lurking fan of yours for some time. No need
to look over your shoulder, I'm not a stalker, but that's what we
all say. I'd like a few things from you if possible. 1) enter me
into your free fly draw.
Gary Peysarlnes. Kitchener, Ontario.
Your site has got me Stoked! I'm a newbe, no rod, no reel, yet.
I gotta fly tying kit but my wife won't let me use it till I get
the taxes done. Once again busted by the feds!
Dan (The Carpman) Mills. Spotsylvania, VA, USA.
Great Carp Page! After many years of secretly trying to hook a carp
on a fly, I finally succeeded. The fly, one of my own making, caught
an 8.5 pound Carp : ) Thanks for a great web site.

Good stuff. Lots of pointers. If I get a carp I will let you know.

trout. Seriously, great site.

The trout tips worked. You made me laugh out loud a few times.

to good use.
Carl Nohr (address unknown)
Reading the stuff on your site is a more reliable activity than
fishing in terms of learning something and having a good time. Still,
gotta catch fish.
Kevin, way down south Florence, Alabama, USA.
