Im in if this is still open. I would be good to whip up a hi-viz deer hair dry, or a pupa pattern depending on what everyone else is tying, I think it would be good if we kept it varied - dry, nymphs, emergers.....
I'm in for one or two, but if we tie 2 patterns, I think we should only tie 1 each, and if we tie 1 pattern I am cool with tying 2 for each person. Anyways....
If 1 pattern: All around caddis emerger (fished dry or just below the surface, I don't have good names cause I came up with these myself).
If 2 patterns: Same as above, and a pupae/emerger pattern that can be fished deep below a big stone all the way up to just below the surface behind a dry, and great on the swing no matter where in the water column it is fished.
Ok Bryan, maybe next time...
So far there's 7 tiers and we're open for a couple more; swap closes Friday June 15th. We'll be exchanging one proven caddis pattern per person. Fly can be from subsurface to floating; just not your standard elk hair though.
Those already committed start replying with your pattern of choice, I'll finalize and then send out details this Friday. I'll be tying up a #14 green pupa emerger.
I like you're idea...
We have the option to tie 2 patterns, with 2 we only tie 1 each, and if we tie 1 pattern I am fine with tying 2 for each person. I'd prefer tying two patterns myself, but this way those that have just one favorite can still participate.:thumb:
As I just posted, I'll close and send details Friday.
In the mean time, I've started tying up one of my patterns....
How about an october caddis dry? I'll also tie a Kent Caddis. It's technically an alderfly tied cinnamon sedge style but it works as a caddis imitation in a pinch as well. Nice skinny water pattern. Sound good?

Sorry for any confusion.
To clarify: You have the option to tie 2 patterns-1 each, or one pattern 2 each. My preference is we tie two patterns each, but either way is fine. Either way with 8 people, this is a total of 16 flies to tie up.
With this number of flies I've extended the deliver deadline from July 2 to July 10th to give us a little more time. Later today, I'll send you guys a P.M. with a summary and mailing details.
obiwankanobi, fine with me regarding the October Caddis
10/4 on the final details. I'll start with one pattern- a pupa emerger and If I can stay ahead of the clock I'll tie a Oct. caddis nymph as well. This should be alot of fun, looking forward to everyone's ideas.
