    Ben, you're gonna have to send me that pattern recipe. I'm going to have to tie some of those in this color or that color. Interesting multicolor dubbing too, what is it?

    the picture doesn't give the fly justice, and i think i used the wrong color for the head, definitely not one I'm using for the swap.

    and i guess the magic number is 10. no need to tie 12 flies unless you really want to... so get tying guys and try to post some pics of your flies.

    Just wondering, is the swap closed at 10 people or not? I am wondering if I can send my flies in. Also I need an address. If I dont want one of my own back it is 9 flies I send in correct?

    Thanks to you both. I have neither of those materials in my collection...I'll have to add it to the list. I like that mixed coloration. (Great color blending has worked for me in the past...Steve, Islander's Camo Carey Special, great color blending, should be illegal!)

    All, for an update, I'm in progress, but I hurt my back pretty bad. I'll be flat on it for most of this weekend but I'm still confident I'll get my intruders done and out on time to Arthur. I can periodically get up and sit to tie one up as a break from lying on the dang floor. I hope you all are fishing your prototypes to great success over the long weekend!:thumb:

    If you would stop slouching while you are typing at the computer screen to make all those posts, it might help. :D I hear turkey and stuffing is good for the back.
    Seriously though. Take your time and get better sir.
