Default International Swap #2 Summer 2010

Here you go folks-- we had some drop outs for this swap, but some nice flies were sent in-- thanks to Chris for suggesting this one.

Micro Leech
Tied by MacFly55
Click the image to open in full size.
Hook: TMC 200R # 14 (could be a 12 if needed)
Thread: Black 8/0 UNI
Head: 1/8 " gold
Tail: Black Marabou
Body: Peacock Herl (3 - 5 strands)...
Tying Instructions:
1. Tie in the Marabou leaving it longer than what will be the actual length .. then the gold wire and the herl..
2. Wrap the herl forward and tie it off behind the bead..
3. Counter wrap the wire ribbing and tie off at the bead..
4. Whip finish.
Note: Since the herl is longer than needed you will need to trim it. Instead of cutting the herl to the length of the hook pinch it off and "tear" it to make a more natural look.. I also found that if you want to cut it length you can still give it a rough more natural look by doing light pinch and tears of small pieces at a time.


Black Bertha

Houghton Lake Special
Tied by Boreal

Magic Brownie
Tied by Didgeridoo
Click the image to open in full size.
Hook: Tiemco 9395 Size 8
Tail: Tuft of Brown rabbit Fur
Ribbing: Gold or Copper wire
Dubbed Body: Stillwater Solutions Sparkle Blend Dark Red Brown
Wing: Tuft of Brown rabbit fur that extends to tail
Throat: Short tuft of Brown rabbit fur
Head: Bead chain eyes with Rust Orange Diamond dubbed head
Notes from Didgeridoo: This pattern resembles either a leech or a minnow. If tied correctly, when wet it should taper into a minnow shape. This pattern is great for trout and has proved itself to be very effective for brown trout, hence the name. In Stillwater situations, use with intermediate sinking line for best results.


Blue Dun Wet
Tied By Pocono

Hook: Mustad S80-3906, #8

Tail: Mallard primary feathers, paired
Body: muskrat dubbing, lt. Dun
Rib: Danville fine wire, silver
Throat: Hen cape, med. Dun (Herbert Miner)
Wing: Mallard primary feathers, paired

Wing: Natural Mallard flank, rolled
Note: There are many variations out there for tying this old pattern, including no without tail and/or rib, and using hen hackle instead of rooster

Oops my bad, I just added a pic of MacFly55's Micro Leech into the first post in this thread because I screwed up the first upload. Sorry John!
