Very nice bunch of flies guys.

The recipe for mine is:

Tail + Abdomen - Red Pheasant Tail (you can use any color, but red worked well on the trout they stock in the urban ponds around here)

Wing Bud: White Z-lon and a small bit of crystal flash on either side.

Thorax: AZ Sparkle Dub - Blood Leech

Bead: Copper (I also tie these with a root beer colored glass bead)

Agreed! I thought the photos were great, but when I got home last night, the flies were there, and I looked at them, they are even better "close-up"! The quality was very humbling. It helped remind me of how much more I have to practice and learn! Great additions to my fly boxes!

This and the simultainious Dry Fly, Clossier Pattern, and Spring Brook Trout Swaps were the first four swaps that I have participated in, and I'm now CERTAINLY glad that I did!!!!
