Joe, toe tags can have as little of as much information as you want to include on them. Some people put their name and the name of the pattern on them; others include the recipe for the pattern as well.

What mudbug posted is fine.

Bueno!

You are way ahead of the curve, there ghocevar!

Nice looking group of Yellow Sallies! And the box looks just right for shipping those dries.

Ard, I really like the looks of the classic patterns; they're a great imitation of the natural and, as you say, they are effective on the water and great for soft presentations.

That's a nice looking Quill Gordon!

Just need to print the toe tags and they'll hopefully go out next week.
I like those Brown Drakes, William.

Drake hatches; particularly the big ones, are favorites of almost everyone where I used to fish for trout in the Pocono Mountains. My personal favorite was the Green Drake hatch; bugs large enough to lure the even the biggest trout up to the surface for a tasty meal.

You and ghocevar are so far out in the lead at this point that you're spurring the rest of us on to get our patterns tied up, pronto! That's great.

If anyone is going to do a step-by-step on their pattern, then don't forget to take some pics at different stages along the way while you're tying up your patterns........ hint, hint......
