Swap Lake (Chironomid) Fly Swap, with a slight twist

I wanted to do a small swap, 5-6 people + me, where everybody ties three patterns - a bloodworm, a chironomid pupa, and an adult chironomid. That way at the end of the swap everybody'll have a full set of chironomids from larva to pupa to adult from each tier, which I thought would be kind of neat because you'd be able to see how the same stages of the same bug would be differently represented from tier to tier.

Swap Closed

i think i will get in on this. i will do a v-rib bloodworm, a griffiths gnat, and i will figure out a pupa. Chronos are one of my favorites to tie

Alright, 70 views and only two takers? WTF. I think some people should grow a pair, and sign up for the swap.:clown:

"tying Flies is easier naked"


I'm not sure I want any of Zach's flies. The visual in my mind gives me the willies....

But put me in on it, I will come up with something for it.

If you don't mind having a first time swapper take part I'm in for this one. I'll be going with a Lady McConnell for the adult pattern.

I'm done. I will be sending out by the end of the week. I have tied a superfloss bloodworm by Brian Chan, a Chromie by Philip Rowley, and the Midge-X by Scott Sanchez. I will be trying out some of my extras this Friday at Lenice or Nunally.....
