Okay, so I've been too tired to tie a few days this week but wanted to get going so that I would not have to tie all these up hastily. I'm not a dry fly tyer and if these suck ass I'm sorry but you are getting them anyway. If they will at least float they can be used as strike indicators...

It took me four attempts to get this winged one and three attempts for the hair one. I have some neat rust colored hackles that I think look good, but the colors of the feathers are slightly variable. At least some of the materials and steps are the same so I'll get some good practice. Let me know if I'm wasting my time...
Ugly flys catch fish, pretty flys catch fisherman but your flys look some where in between so given that, the persons receiving your flys will be happy and the fish will have a hook in their mouths.

Sean K, thanks for the address. I had a good day with the family yesterday and a good night at the vice. I only have a few more to spin up and I think they should get some lines stretched.

No slacking here. I had what I'm calling an awesome night on the vice the last two nights. You've got mail inbound. I hope these don't suck too bad. There are a few extras that I've tinkered with for the swapmeister. SASE enclosed.

I have one pattern done , will have the other complete by the end of the weekend .

The pattern I have finished is called the Puristpupa . Size 12 .

Still undecided about the 2nd pattern . Maybe an X Caddis ?

having a tough weekend but managed to get the spent caddis ones done and starting on the z-wings. looking to send them at the end of the week, maybe sooner if i get a good day but that hasn't happened lately.

i know what the problem is.... more fishing = better attitude

I just want to thank everyone who has gotten their flys to me to this point, and a reminder to those who's I havent received yet to please get them to me by the 11th for if they are not I will have to return your flys to you with out being in the swap. I dont want to hold these flys from being sent out and I will not be able to mail them untill after the 24th If I dont receive them by the 11th due to a business trip. Thanks again and the flys to this point look great!
