    Monkey see, Monkey do....Here is my take on a chartreuse and purple Mahoney from Dec Hogan's book that I'm sending in for the swap. Yes, it is a winter spey pattern, but don't let that stop you from using it with a single-hander too. :thumb:

    Quite elegant, I'll use it on a single...until I learn how to use a double hander.

    Oh, pink and beaded up, very hot. Great looking flies Dinker. Glad mine arrived and that they did not make you puke.

    Got slippery whippets flies this week and they are sweet looking! I look forward to tying up a bunch of things this weekend while the rivers are all a no-go. I can't wait to see what else will be coming in the mail!!

    Hey everyone! Just wanted to put out a friendly reminder that we only have two weeks left. Hope everyone is enjoying this great weather!
    I got the opportunity to fish the Washoughal and the narrows yesterday as I travel a lot for work. No steel, but got one rezzie to hand before it got dark!

    My apologies gents, I had a SNAFU w/ material and need to pick up some more to finish the flies (only like 4 more). I will have mine on a quick flight to Dinker ASAP. Sorry for delays...

    FWIW, I'm doing a #2 Spawning Purple. I bought 2 packs of Marabou and it was shite to say the least. I'm gonna try another guy in the morning and see if he can sort me out.

    Thanks for the patience...

    Mumbles, I will do the quickest turnaround I can. I work out of town most weeks, but will get them to you as soon as I am humanly able. I would love to give these flies a test run on the Hoh as well! Maybe one of y'alls flies can help me catch my first steel!

    Alright dudes, mine have been shipped. Hope you enjoy...

    A note on the pattern, I did not have the thread I normally use, so some of the patterns turned out to look like Egg-Sucking Spawning Purples, AGGHH...bawling:

    Look forward to seeing them!

    Finally got my flies in the mail. I apologize for the tardiness of my offerings and the lack of toe tags.

    Mine will be shipped on Sat since it is unlikely I can get to the PO prior to then. If this is too late let me know if you want to meet in person and make the exchange earlier.

    Speaking of tags...there are so few of you who put tags on the flies. I figure it's fine though, you will all know who's is who's by the pictures.

    Obi- I will send the flies out when I get them all together, so whenever that day gets here, then it will happen. Hopefully that will be sooner rather than later though.

    Cheers :beer2:

    Received Fly Punk's, Steve's and Daryle's flies this week. I am really liking the diversity of this swap. Nice work guys! :thumb:

    Only three more of you left and I can get these out. Hope you all have a good weekend.
