    Maybe we can do a BH Nymph "international" fly swap one of these days ;).. or I'll just have to hop in on some of the swaps here.. I've got a few crawfish tube flies that are deemed 'irresistable' by the Bass, Brown Trout and the Steelies around these parts that I'd love to share.

    Nice tie - by the title I was expecting to see a second hook (clipped) and tied off the first bend, a la Sly & The Family Stone.
