    When i come home, i either fish with a buddy of mine on the cow and the satsop, but when i am staying with my family i fish the nooksack. it doesn't really matter to me. if you tied up a fly that you said works best in new york then that would be an excuse to take a road trip. like i said it doesn't matter, whatever i get i will use on whichever river i am fishing at the time. thanks again. hopefully there will be a fair amount of steelhead in the rivers in december. i know that when i did live in washington december was usually a little early for the rivers i fished.

    I'm doing the Polar Shrimp. Will tie in OP size (probably a 1/0). Gotta tie up a bunch for my steelhead box anyways (and another swap). Might as well do them all the same and at once while I got the materials out. LOL.

    I think we only have 8 people so you can send them all and i'll tie up a couple more for you so that you get the right amount back or you can just keep the extras.
    Thank you for the quick work scott.
    I look forward to seeing the flies.

    My flies are in flight. The chorus girl is named after the materials used to tie the pattern as they are what every chorus girl dreams of, silk, gold, and mink.

    Mine went out Friday. So should've got either Saturday, or will get on Monday. Keep the extra polar shrimps. :beer2:

    Okay, I slacked off and went fishing on Monday instead of mailing the flies. Also grabbed an opportunity to fish Tuesday, so I didn't mail the flies until today.

    As I was packing them up, I said to myself, "Self, these don't look like either gold or black demons!" As usual, Self was right on the money. I sort of mixed up two patterns that use similar materials. They looked pretty fishy though so I made a couple extras. After mailing off the swap flies I went down to the Nisqually and had several Cutts jump all over these mixed up flies.

    The recipe is on the toe tag, so enjoy.
