OK guy's lets do this right. No slackers!
Scott, are we doing 9 each or 18?
I don't know I was looking for some input from all y'all about whether everyone wanted to do 2 ea. variations or just one. I myself would love to do 2 ea. I could do a trout type bugger and then one for steelies. anyone else have any thoughts?????
If I can still get in, I've got a great bugger pattern that'll just knock your socks off. I'm going to be production tying them for the shop I guide out of in MT, so I'll be in the mood to tye them anyway.
It doesn't matter to me either way. I've got one set tied up now so let me know if i need to tie up another.
Okay... Longs for Cutts your in the swap. That makes 10 tyers can't take anymore...
We will go with 1 variation per tyer.
(Edit) I have been informed, by the love of my life, that I need to tie something for the winter runs...so I'm setting my variation on a green-butt bugger I use for winter steelies.
So lets have a great swap and lemme clarify that previous post I stated that flys have to be to me by 02 Oct. I should have said that they need to be mailed by 02 Oct 04, sorry about that folks.
Lets start tying.
Mine are in the mail as of today.
I'll be there in spirit.
I can't Tie flies :beathead:
Mine are coming along. I tied one up today and then threw it in the garbage can. It looked like shit. Well I think all of my flies look that way. I can't decide what size hook to use. I'm thinking a #6.
I'll vouch for Havok. He can't even fish right. :beathead:
same hear Jim...I am thinking #8 or #6
Mine are finished. But I did tie up a total of 20, so I'm just going to send them that way. Every one gets two each.
I did 10 lightly weighted, black marabou tails with gold highlites, black ice chinelle body and black neck hackle.
10 gold bead heads, yellow rabbit tails with pearl Kryastal Flash, olive chinelle body with yellow neck hackle.
Both sets on size 6 TMC 5262 down eye, 2X heavy, 2X long forged bronze hooks.
I'll put them in the mail Monday.
Hey scott, i forgot to put in a few bucks for postage so i sned some money on monday. oooops
Wooley Bugger swap
Mine are also done and everyone will get one of each pattern and you can have what's left over. I won't let on what's coming because it'll ruin the surprise. I should be getting them out this week. Thanks again for hosting the swap.
aka Long Ears
I haven't even started mine. But with this beautiful weather I think that I will knock them out today. It doesn't take long to do them but I have to get in the mood to do them and I haven't been inspired as of yet. :beathead: But it's getting closer. :rofl:
Jim i'm sure that you have nothing better to do, so get motivated.
Well mine are all done. It's the weather that made me do it. I was going to drop out because of my shakes. But I said the hell with them and did them all today and I didn't shake at all. Most flies that I have ever done at one time. Will send them on their way by Friday. Got to find some place to throw a fly before then.
mine went in the mail today; return postage is in the envelope in stamp form.
I was going to sent the recipes with them but, ran out of printer ink. won't be able to get some more before Friday. Would you like me to PM them to you? Randy
Yeah that is fine with me Randy...
My tying recipes were listed in my last thread reply. I didn't include any with the flys, which were sent out today.
If I need to send something else let me know.
hey harley i sent out my postage money, that i forgot about, today.
This is the first time I checked this thread since I tried to get in. I was expecting an email confirmation or something. Since I'm a grad student, I won't have time to tye my contributions in the next few days.
Sorry everybody. I should have been more on the ball.
Here's my pattern so you can tye some if you want:
Hook: 3x long streamer, #2-6
Bead: black, 3/16 inch
Tail: two plumes brown-dyed grizzly Chickabou
Body: Lt. Sow Bug Wapsi Sow-Scud Dubbing
Hackles: 3-5 brown/tan/white/black-mottled ringneck pheasant shoulder "Church Window" feathers. Brown-dyed grizzly saddle will work in a pinch,if you make a tan line up the stem with a Pantone pen.
Once again, sorry. May I never catch another steelhead (for a little while anyway).
