Swap Mini Marathon Trout swap (2014)

Planned to mail mine today, but discovered I have to go to the Apple Store @ the Tacoma Mall tomorrow, so I'll drop these off too. You must think I have some phobia about going to the Post Office....
 
So Nick, April's pattern is a terrestrial/large dry and my question to you, our honorable swapmiester, is: What do you consider to be a large dry? I'm thinking of the always (or usually, anyway....) reliable Royal Wulff and want to tie them in a size that will fit the criteria.....

Gotta love the pteronarcys.
Man, a #4 Royal Wulff sounds awesome, but just what does it replicate? Maybe a water strider, who knows. My dry fly box is plum full, so I'm going to need to buy another fly box!

In my mind, the March swap was typical mayfly, caddis and midge dries or emergers and April would be terrestrials, stoneflies, Oct caddis, etc. I feared terrestrials might be to limiting and didn't want us all exchanging purple chubby patterns (not that they don't work). A Royal Wulff in any size will be just fine, thank you.

Still haven't heard from TD, who has tied some excellent flies in this swap. I will give it one more day, but if I don't receive them by tomorrow or hear that they are in transit I will send everyone their flies on Wednesday.
