I'm half done. Mine are not big and nasty, but I hope they are nasty enough. There are many patters that I'm trying to blend that use mostly bunches of bunny and some spun deer hair. They are measuring just over 3" (not counting the tail). They have a #4 hook for the body and a #2 near the tail. I'm leaving them alone and will let each of you decide which you prefer to clip if you clip either (unless you all tell me you want one or the other gone). Time to get back to tying.

D3-
Got your flies today. Sweetness.
I'm done with the bodies of my flies, waiting on some turkey tails to come in the mail so that I can wing them. If you have not started tying, or at least thought about tying, shame on you.

This isnt something that happens normally in swaps but I like to break the rules. All the eastside guys are getting a eastside stlye fly. All you west side kids are getting a westside fly. The bugs are all dank, evil and I decided to mix up the colors for you kids. You will enjoy the bug you get and I am sure some may have bug envy. PS if you hate the fly I picked for you pm me and I can tie you something else...
Here is what I tied for you all.
2.Charles - Jenna's G string
3. Monkey - Jenna's G String
4. Miller - Mad sexy bead moal
5. D3 - the high water bc bug... its a doube maribou you will like it on high water sauk days
6. Steve S - green butt monkey moal
7. Zach M - a moal for salmon. pink thing
8. Bannon - jenna's g string with a bit of cock
9. Flyborg - Dank bc slaying bitch from hell
10. D Dalan - Jenna's G string

Mumbles loves the "not so hot" fly. I'm still working on mine, but I'll be getting them done. I'm enjoying this tying session in that I'm using two hooks conneted by braided spectrafiber, foam, chamois strips, rabbit fur strips that I'm cutting myself from a full hide, spun deer hair and some moose hair fibers. I've showed a couple of them off and have been told that fish that hit big nasties will hit this (I was even talked out of one by someone who was sure that he could catch something big and nasty on it).

Don't you hate it when your alternate personality signs you up for something without a consultation! I should probably get started:eek:

Plod...plod...plod, but at least I'm plodding along. Working two jobs has prevented me from dedicating time to sit and finish, but I'll get them done.
