For answers though consult Bob Triggs :rofl: :rofl:

Have fun, Davy :beer2:
Cmtuntra- Thanks for the vote of confidence on that one. I am not sure that I even have any tippet small enough to tie on one that small, or the patience to tie one.

Davy, The descriptions next to the names had me rolling. :D :clown:
Tanner is going to tie a bead headed woolly bugger.
Monique is going to tie an elk hair caddis.
Myself, I was thinking about a floss bodied, bearded streamer pattern, :hmmm: but decided that I will stick with the trout theme and try and tie a pheasant tail nymph.



Active Member
ST-, I couldn't resist that ,huh? :beer2:

Nice choices, tye the 22 if you want, judging from the pic I believe you would be just fine. :thumb:

Tell Monique she is welcome to send along all the extra elk hair caddis' she feels like ( will work for trout fly's) :rofl:

Have fun all -- 13 flys

I will be tying a few "bonus" flys for the selections ,such as they may be. :cool:

There are a couple of flies that I've been wanting to learn to tie. Maybe a Hare's ear nymph. I'll think on it over the weekend and let you know what I choose.

Oh, and since I work near the Hanford Nuclear Reservation, making the flies glow won't be a problem... :rofl:

My "Mountainous" fly will be a Damsel fly nymph. I think it will be challenging but fun to figure this one out. I can't wait to see the checkerboard fly. :p
Is everybody done yet? I'd like my flies by the weekend please, if it's not too much trouble. -kidding of course. Haven't started yet. I might get some done Thurs, if not next week. Schedules way too tight this week...can't even fish this weekend. bawling:

I caught the flu from my son so I will be staying home tomorrow. I think I will make good use of a sick day and start tying for the swap. Theese will be some quality flies, they might look a little screwed up because I will be all doped up on Nyquill. :beer1:

These type of patterns are known as " chemically induced immaculantly concieved fly dressings" :thumb:

I am very familiar with these types and it will not be a problem.

Having fun yet?

I wish I had seen this sooner. I could of sent out some woven flies. Hell,I'll whip out a dozen of them and give them to Davy and he can send them all out for youse people. I don't want any in return as I already have more than enough to play with for the rest of my life.

A green caddis should be just about right,or a tan one.. This is about the only fly that I can tie that looks half way good. All the dries that I have tied up look like they have something wrong with them. Wings to long,hackles too long or short. Bodies to lumpy. Nothing to give to anybody and get laughed out of here.

So how's about it.

Happy Birthday Old Man :beer2:
