    Hey Guys-
    I polished off my flies. It is a pattern more or less of my own design. I am not including the recipe on the toe tag because it seems more efficient to do it here -

    "Night Ripper"

    Hook: AJ sz. 3, Silver
    Tip: X-small Gold Oval Tinsel
    Tag: Black Floss
    Body: 1/2 P-Cock, 1/2 Purple Angora
    Body Hackle: Fuchsia Pheasant Rump
    Collar: Teal
    Wing: Kip Tail

    Monkey great job, sweat tie. The pheasant rump feather is a nice touch. Where did you get the feathers. I have never seen them in that color.

    Because I wish I was in this swap and really because I wish I could tie this well, I have to point out that my boy Monkey Salad has only been tying for about a year...and his nickname is protege. Are you planning on posting photos of all the patterns? Marty, those ties are nasty.

    Here's one of eight done. Now I remember why I detest tinsel bodies. But it does look really good up close with the two ribs.

    Mine are half way done. I get them in the mail before the end of the week.

    I'll try and get a photo up tomorrow after work.
