Eight down with five to go before tax day and the operner.
I would really like to be a part of a fly swap. I am a new member to WFF but an experienced tyer. What are the rules and how is the swap done? I get the part about tying 13 flies of the same go-to pattern. What I don't understand is the logistics of the swap. :beathead:
I am still thinking about what to tie. I was thinking that since I have so much time I might see what I can learn before then. Right now I am just moving from nymphs to streamers.
Kent puts it very well for logistics:
Example from his soft hackle swap, I'll have similar instructions but the dates and address's will be different. Hope this explains the details.
Here's the ground rules for the swap.
Is there still room? If so I'm in for a Stimulator.
Four to go here's the list:
Put me down for a Dark Caddis, size 12 with extended body.
Done Don, had to say that, LOL
My go to flies. After some thought, difficult for me, I guess its a tossup between a Tan EHC or Red Humpy. I fish mostly lakes and the OP. Since my Humpys look absolutely ugly(trouble with the proportions/amount of hair), it will be the EHC in size 12.
Don't pull out your hair Gene, you have until April
man, you guys fish big caddis! I know they are out there, but I rarely see caddis over a 16 or 14 if it is stretching it. But hey, if it is your go-to fly, it must work so I have no room to talk. Then there are those monster octobers...mmmm...yummy.
I am in. Put me down for my ol' faithful black wooly bugger.
I'm going to tie a nymph attracter we'll call Randy's Beadhead that has been responsible for my largest steelhead (35 1/2") and has caught most other species I've landed. I will tie it in my most used size which is a 10. This is the fly I used to fish so much, I got the nickname "onefly." It truly is the one fly I always have with me and will usually fish if only as a dropper to a big leech.
Upgraded last post Randy, secret recipe added
yellow humpy for me.
Three more spots for the best fly swap, April 15, get your spot now.
Daryle, so far we have some fun flies
If room I'm in -- #14 Dick's parachute-grey foam extended body
