    Glad you like them!

    Very easy, basically this pattern on a tube with a cone head instead of a tungsten bead. If I could have found a tungsten bead to fit the tube, I might have used it, but since the tube weighs less than a hook, it should ride / jig fine.

    Hook: 5263BL Size 8 2XL
    Bead: Black Tungsten 5/32
    Tail: Rabbit Strip the Length of the hook shank
    Body: Rabbit dubbing brush, change density of brush for more or less buoyancy

    I used HMH tubing, small, and the corresponding junction tubing and a size 6 straight eye tube fly hook. I fished a black one today and it looked great in the water!!

    The trick is the dubbing brush, since you remove the hide from the rabbit or whatever fur you choose to use.

    I'll take a pic of the black one, unless you want to post a pic of the ones I sent in.

Im headed up for 7 days. cannot wait. GAME OVER, was looking forward to trying out your guys ties. Instead I am regifting them to my pops who gets to fish often there. It was a lot fo fun doing this swap.

    Hope everyone enjoyed the kilowatt i tied on the jig hook.

    IF anyone wants the recipe pm me or just ask on the thread.

    I recieved mine yesterday although yesterday was the first day we have got mail in about five days because of snow and the holidays.

    There are some really nice ties in there not to mention a grand variety. I was surprised to see some of what look to me to be some very small patterns. I amazed that they will attract hook and hold a Steelhead. I would also enjoy hearing how these small flies are fished. This is however part of the fun because my perspective is anything smaller than a #1 looks small to me for Steelhead as I usually fish size 2/0 or larger as a rule. I especially liked the DT Eggs pattern tied by hedburner and the Kilowatt by chuckngear.

    I would like to thank everyone who participated and especially thankyou synister370 for hosting.

    Tight lines gentlemen.
