Okay the flies will be hand delivered by a Playboy Playmate delivering a keg of beer.
Just sent the address. Got nailbender's flies and they look pretty slick with the green hooks.
Ok, just finished mine
Look forward to the swap photos guys! Wish I would have joined this swap but I will enjoy from the screen.
Been super busy, but should have mine done tonight.
I'm all finished, maybe get a photo up soon. I'll be mailing things off this week. I went with a UV Yak hair instead of white bucktail; hope they kill!
Here they are. Still debating length of stinger vs. fly length, as well as proportions. Any suggestions are appreciated. Really stared at photos I had to get everything right.
Yes I'm really curious about thoughts on stinger length because I see them anywhere from halfway back to as long as the whole fly...
Kevin, the flies look good. I put my hooks toward the back of the fly to prevent short strikes.
Yeah I guess can you go too far? Fish sees too much hook? Anyhow I tied a few more making sure they're long enough flies and stinger is trailing a bit more. Should send them out tomorrow.
The ones in the pic look good. I didn't mean for you to tie up more.
Just a heads up 5 days left
No big, I tied a number, and different sizes for myself. Flies went out Wed. Looking forward to seeing them all.
my flies went out friday.
