Connor Is in! I will tie up a tube hopper if that is alright?
alright thats fine ill join if i find a pattern, what do you recomend?
Ill join if there is still room.
May I join your swap? Pattern Parachute Ant
I'll tie a deer hair beetle for the swap.
it does not matter. if you fish terrestrials then just tie a pattern that's affective for you. otherwise any beetle, cicada, hopper, cricket, ant, etc. will do.
Or a termite. I'm hoping someone will throw in a nice termite pattern for the swap!
alright this swap is closed. even though there is not a big hurry to meet the deadline. the quicker i get them the sooner they go out and see water. when you are ready to ship them let me know and i will pm my address.
im in ill either tie a bettle or a termite
accually guys hows this? i got the pattern from a past swap.
looks more like a caddis then a "land based insect", anyway, Ill tie a "Peacock Madam X on crack"
well its the dark and ugly without the crazy legs that sean k i think tied in the yakima swap. i still have some adjustments to it like the bullet head and the crazy legs
Well here is my first attempt. As i said before, I am new to tying and this pattern has proven more difficult than I thought. Your critiques are welcome. I'm thinking I need more dubbing under the post, and the wing needs to be down closer to the body (although I don't think a fish will notice that with it's view from the bottom)
Looks pretty good! I agree that you should add more dubbing, esp. around the post, to create a more tapered head. Also, I'd wrap the parachute hackle closer to the body so it floats higher.
so am i in or not?
