    Had a beer with Sean and got my flies today. Sean's a great guy and I recommend to anyone who has the chance to grab a brew with him and talk some trout.

    All the flies really look great.

    Loopy - What did you use for the thorax of the pupa?

    Just got back from a trip and got my flies. Wow, what a bunch of great flies! I certainly got much better than I delivered. Thanks to Sean for hosting, and for taking extra care in packaging my shipment. Thanks to all the tiers as well. I've got a lot of work to do to get more swap-worthy!

    That's Dark Dun Z-lon. Leland at Orvis recommended it to me for the parachute posts on BWO's, and I like it so now I use it for everything. Its probably some type of combed out yarn, its real fuzzy and comes in a hank like krystal flash. It comes in several colors as well. I really liked it as the overwing on the dry I sent in, I looked at one in the vise from a few feet away and it made the wing look "fluttery".
