best of luck to you at the hoh down maybe you'll get to tango with some beauties.
You can get Antelope from sportsmans warehouse I found some there today, but they had only one pack left. It was rediculous I went there to buy only for some more hooks and walked out $150 dollars poorer thanks to more tying materials.
sucks, im just kidding. thank you for supporting the economy
YESSSSSSS COLTON!!! Your in!!! Thank you. Everyone tie 12 flies each. Should fill up in time.
We need some more people! My flies are looking good, I will put up a picture soon..
this is the first swap that ive seen pictures given before the flies were send back to people
I cant believe people are not joining after seeing all of these.....and honestly....its 12 flies...if you tie 1/2 of one fly a day you will still make the deadline.
Here are mine. The pic makes the body look orange, but its amber.
what size hooks are those on? how do you want us to send them to you, i was looking at a Altoids tin but i don't think i want to sent 6 Altoids tins to you
no i feel embarrassed your flies rock, ive got a little lake that ive wanted to try since November and im counting down the days till it opens. these flies will hopefully bring me some fish there or on the YAK!!!!!
Those are a size 6 hopper hook. (wider gap than the 200R) Can you fit all 12 in the altoids box? you can also send a small fly box, and I'll put your new flies in it and make sure it gets back to you. I will PM you the shipping info. Has everyone got the shipping address so far? If not please let me know...Thx
OZ pm me shipping info I was messin around at the vise tonight so Ill have the pattern narrowed down by the weekend Ill post some pics mayeb sunday so you all can critisize my flys.
im new to fly fishing and fly tying
i want to join this but i dont know of any good and easy patterns.
any suggestions that are easy to tie but that are not useless for all the other tiers?
ill try to think of something by tommorow and get back to you.
so a little bit of an update. don't know what to call it, but it has some green hair, bullethead, is generally dark and ugly, has dark legs, and a little tuft of calf hair for visibility. am in the caddis swap too, and am 1/2 way through those flies - next up will be these dark and uglies.
no kidding i am anticipating people joinning at everytime. i have to check for updates during class
today is the last day before spring break so ill get them tied up this next week, i ve tweeked out my pattern a little bit
and thx oz i got the shipping info!
this is a pretty easy pattern to tie, actually its probably the easiest pattern to tie
PM'd you Sean.
Yeah, someone should tie up a fatty double layer Chernobyl. That fly is a summer staple and super durable.
