    Is there anything in particular you want us to tie, or is it a gen bead head swap? Trout, steelhead, big, small, etc?

    I'm thinking bead heads for trout. Big small I dont really care as long as it catches fish. if thats cool with everyone then we will get the ball rolling on this one.

    I'm getting a new place in early july(around the 9th) so once i get settled there i'll PM everyone my new address.

    Todd,

    Just want to make sure I'm clear, a dozen flies each (6 each of two patterns), correct?

    Thanks,

    Calvin

    I'm done, but there are some minor variations in size and bead color (Sorry!). I tied a BH Chocolate Lab Stone. Yes the dubbing came from my lab. I caught some steelhead with them last Fall on the Ronde and Rogue. I also tied a Rogue River favorite called an Agent Orange. It is a PT variation that works great for SRC and steelhead. Sorry they are both Wet Side flies.
