    Eric Nice Tie !
    can wait to see it if thats a bad picture

    Here is a picture of my version of the "precious" ala Mumbles
    I will not be tying this one lest we all swap a different version of the same fly

    I had a feeling Ed would be tying this one up for chums given how highly he spoke of it at the last swap ...so highly in fact I had to go tie a few up

    I will be tying my soon to be infamous Chartreuse Chum Puppy

    Nice Kelvin. I will be tying up a version of the precious and I'm contemplating a simple woven body version that has wrangled up some chum for me in the past.

    Very nice Kelvin! I will not be tying the precious either, but a bastardized version for the chummies.

    What's the wing made of? Looks like peacock herl. Awesome looking fly. I'm going to have to rethink my selection.

    Kerfwappie, clarification please. We are each tying two flies for all other swap entrants, correct? Do you want them all the same pattern or are we doing two different patterns? I had been thinking of doing two different patterns but maybe I'm confused (as usual). Thanks.

    He said it didn't matter Ed. I tied the same thing, in two sizes anyhow. They'll be sent off tomorrow. :beer2:

    there we go found my camera haha


    The flys with the bead chain eyes are the "estuary" chum candy
    The flys with no bead chain are the "original" chum candy

    Any input would be nice so i can make them the best.
