Swap Winter Lake 2

Smells like low tide.
Finished mine yesterday too late to get 'em mailed, and heading to the P.O. shortly. Took about 3 or 4 times longer than I expected to get 'em done. I'm just too slow at tying. Sheesh!:D

I scrapped my #2 fly (bh pheasant tail nymph). Decided a streamer pattern would be better. Last winter this fly did well at Pass and then last weekend it was the hot fly again on Lone when not much else was working. This is Craven's Platte River Special but with liquid lace body.

Strung hacke is HARD to find right now so I'm using what I have and it's not perfect...

Those are really nicely done streamers!
 
Thanks guys.
My intent was to introduce this pattern to more people because it has been so good for me (along with the Platte River Spider Blue tied for one of Ira's previous swaps.)

OK incase you have not heard yet, Patrick and Jim just made it in under the deadline. Mary on the other hand... ? Should we wait for her flies or should I send out tomorrow what I have now?

Make the call folks, I'm cool either way, but that's easy for me to say because I have all your flies and I don't have to wait anymore to use them.
 
I say send them out on Saturday. Give one extra day. I think she did respond saying she was working on them.....who knows maybe the world ends tomorrow and you won't have to mail anything.

Alright folks, all the flies are in their packages and ready to be shipped tomorrow (Wednesday the 26th) depending on where you are, you should see them this week! Some are tagged, and some are not. My camera is currently sitting in my mother in laws garage up by pass lake so no photos until I'm able to pick it up (Maybe Thursday). I'll be honest I didn't keep track of everyones flies so after I take the photos, I'll need some of you to pipe up and claim them if you didn't tag. No biggie, but I will pester the heck out of you if you forget.

I also would like to know the names and authors of the flies as I intend to make a shadow box of the Winter Lake set. Speak up or I'll sic Ira on you. And.... you'll be famous over in Moses Lake land.
