    Been busy lately but finally started to tie mine yesterday. I should be done with them on Sunday and I will mail them from work on Monday. Simple size 10 Rabbit and Uni yarn leech I have used that has worked well for me over the years.

    This is a very interesting swap with so many different sizes and patterns. I'll try to do a collage at the end of the swap to show it.

    Got started last night, hope to be done this Friday.

    I'm tying a Marabou leech with an articulated hook. It's unweighted to make it easier to cast, and is a size 6. I'm really trying to tie it for the still water, full sink (or intermediate) kind of situation... the color choice will be burgandy, brown and black.

    Guess I better get mine done, gave the last one to my barber, almost forgot the toe tag. Be prepared for some awesome leech patterns guys, but be prepared for Scotts, you might have to duck when this one comes whizzing by your noggin.

    Just put the head cement on my last fly. I'd describe them as subtle, ugly, and deadly on my favorite lakes.
    They'll go in the mail on Monday, with a bunch of extras fro Daryle!:thumb:

    finishing up tonite. I'll be mailing them out tommorow. It's a pretty simple palmered marabou articulated leech.
