Mine hit the mail tomorrow. I ended up not doing a spade. Started thinking about small dark flies on desert rivers in Sept/October and decided on a new pattern.
For inspiration, I used the "Half-Ass" pattern by Jeremy Floyd in last year's Summer Steelhead swap and combined it with a Mack's Canyon color palette. The result is the "Max Caddis".
Hook - Alec Jackson Spey #7
Tail - black crystal flash pointed up
Tag - gold flat tinsel
Rear body - orange natural seal fur blended with dark orange trilobal flash
Front body - black natural seal fur blended with black flash simi-seal
Rib - medium gold oval
Rear hackle - Coque, half-bronze
Front hackle - Orange dyed Guinea
Beauties Tom and Jarad!!
Everyone else, Flies should be in the mail my tomorrow to get them to me by Thursday!!! Get em in boys!
I sent mine last week via airmail .

If it wasn't obvious, the 'fancy' one is for you.

Ok guys, flies will go out Thursday. Sorry for the delay, I am actually out of town until Weds night. I think everyone will be pleased.
Flies were sent out last week, pics are up, you should be getting your flies any day.
Also, if someone could post a pic of Seans wolley worm I would appreciate it. I think I accidentally shorted myself that one...
Got mine yesterday. Nice mix of different sorts of flies. The tube skater is giving me all sorts of nasty ideas...
