    I have mine tied. Royal Wulff and a fly that was called a wooly bugger when given to me but it looks more like a Carey Special variation.

    I'm finished with ten but checked the posts and found that there are now twelve. I will make some more just for the fun. I have a low water, steelhead coachman and a searun baitfish pattern. I've used the coachman lots but the baitfish is new to me and I'll be using it this coming weekend.

    Is there any other way? and doughy biscuits fer the xtra gravey.
    Had a little fresh ground elk that was callin' my name.

    The fishing lately has been pretty good but I see the daphnia is coming back with falling water temps. Slammed 'em last week on emergers about a foot deep but the flies were too small to get pics with pierced lips.
    Reckon ya'll gonna have to believe me when I say they work. he he

    I have never participated in a fly swap before. Should we tie 14 flies?

    Jerry,
    Tie me some extra flies and I'll bring ya' some cornbread n honey.

    Kelv,
    I should bring a pot of beans and hamhocks with mexican cornbread. We'd have a little fun during the swap but the fly shop might not sell much after our visit!

    Steve you will be trading two sets of flies with two other people
    you can tie more and you don't have to unless you want to give all to me of course

    5 Bright Dot Dry Flies
    5 White and Olive Flatwing Bait fish Patterns

    View attachment 45620

    I am finishing up my last fly tonight. 5 Flashback stoneflies and 5 Spawning Purple.
    I can't make it in person unfortunately. I spend my "weekend" away from the dispatch center cooking at Sapolil Cellars here in Walla2 and my 2nd boss has a huge catering event that day and keeps getting this panic ridden look on her face when I ask her about it. So I am gonna be a nice and work.
    Where should I send the flies?
