I thought I was ahead of the game, but I was behind on another swap so I sent mine in. I'll be done with another round no later than Wednesday next week, and they'll be in the mail. Sorry fellas, but I'm glad we hadn't set a date yet, and mine will still be in early.
I just finished my dozen Mike. They will spank last years model.
well i hope so cause i never caught crap with last years model. j/k
Can't wait to try out your "Rockstar" pattern Pat! :beer2: nice going...
Just started last night...
I am done with my CDC foam back emerger. They will be in the mail soon. We have 10 fellas in the swap right?
yes we have 10. look forward to seeing your flies DDS
Flies are in the mail Sarge.
Heres a recipe
8/0 uni brown thread..doesnt matter much you can use whatever
Hook: Tiemco 2487 #18
Bead: 2mm copper tungsten
Tail: 4-6 green pheasant tail fibers
Body: 1 strand of stripped peacock herl wrapped over thread (Strip w/ pencil eraser)
Rib : Ultrafine French Wire
Thorax: Hairline krystal dub in olive (Experimenting first time i used this, hares ear dubbin works too)
Wingcase: 4 strands of dark peacock flashabou
Legs: Same flashabou for wingcase pulled back and down 2 on each side trimmed short
sounds tasty jerry. we'll have to give that a test run near duchesne
Flies are on their way. DDS is going to see the same fly that I tied from another swap that we're both in, but I think this one is an improvement over the first one.
