    1 dozen weighted flashback hare's ears, plus a couple variations for the 'meister (olive variant, different wing case, and tied sparsely).

    Recipe in my gallery.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone else's!

    Sweet, Teeg! I'll look forward to seeing them.

    Mine are half done but we're remodeling our house and my tying desk is buried under a tarp in a pile of furniture in the front room while the painter's at work. Hopefully, I can finish this weekend.

    Mine are done as well but the only ones I've seen yet are from Halcyon.

    How are the rest of you coming along?

    I put mine in the mail yesterday. 13 "Tree Farm GRHE's". They are black with red wire. I have had success with them in the dark waters of Lake Hancock. My last fish caught with one was a big brook trout in October.

    Kent, I'm hoping you can reuse the box that I sent the flies in. Also, I put in $3 for the shipping. I hope that's enough. This is my first flyswap so I apologize if my swapping procedure is sloppy.

    I can sure imagine why this pattern works so well after seeing Flyn'dutchman's beautiful ties. How are the rest of you coming along?

    Scott, Dylan and Stephen have all posted that they're in process. If you guys could wrap it up this weekend and send on Monday, we'll be in good shape.

    Totally on board folks! For whatever reason I thought that we would use email to coordinate... :) At any rate, my bad.. I've got the following being tied:

    size 10 GRHE tied on a 1x short size 10 (size 12 length, size 10 gap). Rubber legs, bead head, and normal dressing otherwise. I like it for early spring stones :) Used it on the yak last feb and it worked just fine :)

    So far 5 are done, and I should bang 'em out tonite and get them in the mail by Thursday.

    Thanks for your prompt response James. Your rapid post beat our PM exchange!

    All present and accounted for.
