    I wouldn't mind tying an extra. Plus, have you looked at Cameron's gallery? You know we'd be getting an awesome fly!

    Thanks guys! I'll definitely tie something up that will be grand. Got to earn my keep, right?

    How would you all feel if I tied the same pattern but in 8 different colors. So everyone would get a fly that would be just a little different. In fact if you want to choose your color I would be game for that as well. The wing would have to be black, red, purple, or orange. Let me know if this works.

    I'm okay with getting a different color. Let the artist and materials play.

    Hey Guys-
    I polished off my flies. It is a pattern more or less of my own design. I am not including the recipe on the toe tag because it seems more efficient to do it here -

    "Night Ripper"

    Hook: AJ sz. 3, Silver
    Tip: X-small Gold Oval Tinsel
    Tag: Black Floss
    Body: 1/2 P-Cock, 1/2 Purple Angora
    Body Hackle: Fuchsia Pheasant Rump
    Collar: Teal
    Wing: Kip Tail

    Monkey great job, sweat tie. The pheasant rump feather is a nice touch. Where did you get the feathers. I have never seen them in that color.

    Because I wish I was in this swap and really because I wish I could tie this well, I have to point out that my boy Monkey Salad has only been tying for about a year...and his nickname is protege. Are you planning on posting photos of all the patterns? Marty, those ties are nasty.
