Room for one more but will take a backup or two if one of the above opt out.
I will be tying a yellow caddis pupa emerger #16. They were found up on Wildcat Lakes (beyond Snow and Gem Lakes) in July and have seen them elsewhere. The trout were loaded with them too. Not very common, I always keep a few in the box for such times.
When I think Alpine Lakes, I think simple, old fashion, dry flies. Always had a Grey Hackle in my fly box as a kid. Simple red hackle tail, peacock herl body and a grizzly hackle. Does this sound alright? I'll do them in size 16.
I love stripping (flies...usually) in the high lakes. I will tie a bugger variant of mine, and probably some sort of "get-your-attention" nymph...or maybe just a brown one that really works well in a lot of spots...we'll see.
Let's go for it. This is my first time doing the swap, so I assume flies and addresses come to me and then go out to the recipients. Let me know if it works differently. In any event, please send privately to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will plan to have the flies sent out by the end of the month.
If others want to join, give me a hollar. I have not heard back from at least one person so there may still be a slot.
