    to be quite honest, i have not started yet, but never fear, my flies will be done on time and look good. I promise.

    Update as follows: I will start them as soon as I get back from a month in Lousiana. (around the first of july) But dont worry all flys will be done and fishable can't say they will be worthy of the gift card but fishability they will have.

    So, I got some news...I won't be able to make the face to face for this swap :mad: bawling:
    Looks like I am going to my wife's family reunion that weekend out of state. I will tie up some tasty flies though, and maybe I could meet Kelvin somewhere to make the drop before hand. I was looking forward to seeing some old faces and some new ones, but looks like it won't happen for this event.

    Sorry Gents,

    Matthew

    Here is what has been working the best for me. I think I'll tie up the golden (dubbing) version for the swap.

    Haven't started production on mine yet.
    I've been tinkering with some different materials, looking at everyone elses awesome patterns and getting some great ideas for my own "little frankenstein".

    Stay tuned,

    Richard

    kelvin im not going to be able to finish in time for the swap. The army is keeping me in lousiana for an extra week which would only give me an evening to get all my flys tied so im going to have to opt out of this one.

    Unfortunately, I too have to drop out of this swap. I just found out that I am laid off from work. I'll see what I have laying around the tying desk to see if I can still tie up some worms for everyone, but due to no income and no car (only had company rig) it will be impossible for me to take part. I apologize that I could not give an earlier notice, but I only had a two day notice myself. Such is life, I guess! Hope everyone enjoys themselves at the get together! :beer2:

    Once I get back into the workforce, I'd really like to celebrate and host a face to face swap with all beer provided! So, I'll keep everyone posted. Until then, get out there and hook a fish or two for me! :thumb:

    Damn Ben, sorry to hear about the news. I hope you can get back on the work-horse soon.

    Kelvin, nice fish man!! I am rethinking the color too. After finding a green worm on my line up in BC last week. I've never seen one that color. I've also got some great ideas brewing. I'll be sitting down at the vice this weekend!

    Nice fish Kelvin!!! :thumb:
    I too have been having a lot of luck with the pattern I posted above.
    Olive has been the best color, but black seems to be a close second.

    I noticed that some of these patterns have "stinger hooks" (2 hooks on one fly).
    Is this common practice when fishing in a catch and release fishery like the SRC's?

    I don't think they are stinger hooks. They are set back from the head of the fly on mono to reduce the risk of short strikes. The common practice is to tie the fly on the shank of the hook and the actual hook back after the bend has been cut off usually with a loop so you can change hooks.
