Ohh, i guess you can look at it either way.
Just got my flies and i have to say that this is definately one of the best swaps that i have been in. nice job guys and randy are you kidding me with that stone, that is super pimp and had to have taken to much time to tie up let alone a dozen or so.
Those are some sick flies. Good job guys.
Ohh and another thing, is anyone gonna put the pics up in the gallery? Also, what it the purple one used for, im kinda new to fly fishing so i dont really know what all the flies are.
Got my flies today as well, they all look great. That big stone sure stands out, sweet pattern. I didnt label mine, mine are both similiar patterns. They are both small simple nymphs, both are squirrel and both are beadheads. One is dark olive with a black tungston bead and a flash tail. The other is rust color squirrel with a gold bead and a pheasant tail. Nothing fancy but they both can catch fish.
Thanks again fellas, good work.
I just got the flies today... awesome work guys. I'm not sure who tied what but when I get the photos posted you guys can tell me who tied what with names and such. Randy that stone is the dope show... no way am I soaking that sucker it's going in the tying room... something to shoot for down the road.
anyway thanks and I'll try and work out the photos in the next few days and hopefully I can figure it out.
thanks again trevor for the hosting and to all tiers
now hopefully my photos can do these flies justice
ok guys I got the photo part done. If you guys could identify your flies and give me the names of the flies along with your name I can finish them off before I send them to the swap photo gallery. All my tags came of except for Randy's and I knew mine so that is what they look like finished.
Let me know what you think and either post the info to me in pm or on the thread it doesn't matter
thanks for the experience
ps that first biot nymph photo is a rough draft so disregard
The first 3 photos are mine. the middle one is a biot nymph and the other is a hot wire prince nymph
Top row, second from right=peeking caddis
Second row, second from left=pheasant tail variant ("theo's")
The flies are all amazing guys. Definitely see some stuff that I'm going to have to learn to do.
Thanks for the opportunity.
mine are the red rubber legged copper john and the "black widow" the black one with the red stripe on the bottom....again with rubber legs...
edit- Holy cow...my wraps sucked on that Copper John....It is amazing how blowing up a photo brings out the bad little details. I am used to tying with a magnifier and light, but I dont have the room here at school, so my Quality control goes down substantially...apparently... I'll have to work on that...
Yeah ditto on the wraps, they usually look tight to the naked eye but on my RPT they dropped of considerably under the microscope
The last one on the top row is mine its a tungston olive squirrel nymph, and last one on the bottem row is mine as well, thats a bead head rust squirrel Nymph.
top row 5th one is a net builder caddis.
Thanks everyone, they all are great!
PS- ya know, I just realized I didnt quite follow the rules. Technically mine isnt a nymph, its a larva! oh, well
That's it...you're officially kicked out of swap-land for such blasphemy! A larva in my nymph swap?! HERESY I tell you!
:beathead: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! bawling:
All right guys they are in the gallery. They aren't up to par with alot of the offerings in the gallery but I did the best I could with what is available to me at this time.
Thanks again everyone
I think you did a hell of a job silver, thanks
Ditto Silver you did a great job with those pics. Thanks for stepping up and doing that for the group!
And Thanks everybody for the great patterns
Maybe you can add your name and recipe in the Gallery so others can learn from your tyes; That's really what it's all about...:beer2:
What are you doing...
