    This will be my first swap, so I'll have to look up the details re sending them and so on. Do I have this straight, I'd only need to tie and send 9 flies?

    I'll add my favorite fly (I've only fished a few so far but this one rocks...)

    Epoxy-head Olive over Chartreuse bucktail over UV crystalflash over white/UV angel hair - I dunno what to call it except "breakfast, lunch and maybe dinner"

    Okay, the more I tie the more I learn. I'm in. I just checked the hackle drawers and I have some plain olive and olive grizzley as well as some plain maroon and maroon grizzley. I will tie a deciever variation with a black head and collar that flow back over the hackle feathers for the body. Anyone got a color preference? I know the olive is pretty standard, but the maroon could be a good change of pace color that many of us might not be carrying. I found this variant of Lefty's Deceiver in one of Poul Jorgensen's books.

    Here's the simple epoxy head that I've been enjoying... just a little variation off something I saw in Jeff's box. I'm sure there's some name for it, or it doesn't need a name.

    I started working with the maroon pattern and came up with this rascal. I have a patch of some unknown fur that compliments the colors of the body hackle and grizzley hackle quite well in my eyes. Comment? I can tie it smaller, right now it is on a Mustad #4 and it is the length of a large clouser. I'll stew on it a bit and not tie up a bunch until I hear from someone...anyone...about their impressions. I'm used to beach fishing with some baitfish patterns of size, maybe this is overdone for rezzies? Currently it is also unweighted, I can also add body wraps or barbel eyes for weight. Once this fur is wet it will be a fly that will operate just below the surface unless you are using a polyleader or sink tip.

    The fly looks good. A few ideas include a few whisps of white and orange marabou added in the front and make the head a little smaller. That looks great though. I cant think of anything else to add or change.

    Hey Clint, I kinda ran out of the blue\green so would it be okay if I change my pattern to a pink over white epoxy head baitfish???
