    Icanfly, I agree, sparkle caddis...I've never seen one in person. But you choose.

    D3 you can tye whatever size you like...I don't see anything wrong with a #16. I try to match the hatch as close as I can with size more so then exact color. Coachman's have all the right color combos in my eyes.

    Heh Ron is that split & divided or parachute style?

    I'm already getting excited...

    :cool:

    Scott, Are we closed at 8? In any case 8 or 12, the flies are done and ready to go out. All I need is an address to send them to.

    I'm not a sneaky son of a... bawling: I figured everyone would look at the first post the most often so I updated it there. Sorry folks.

    Scott,

    Thanks, I guess I shouold start looking at the first post instead of going to the last page. Any extras belong to the swapmeister. They look a little weird for a BWO but they work like a charm.

    yeah.... i have got them down now so i am going to do the coachman.... Finally figured out how to do the wings again so i am pretty stoked about that. I think they are size 16s but i lost the hook package and they may be smaller. I kind of like these small flies as they are difficult to start with but once you figure them out they go pretty quick.
