Flytier- Luckily the fish don't seem to be too picky about proportions-- otherwise I'd be in deep trouble.


And if you ever want to get feedback on your flies feel free to post pics in the general fly tying forum... Folks here are great about offering constructive feedback and tips on materials and techniques.


Looking forward to your flies.

Fly tier-- glad to hear the flies are rolling in from your other swaps.

And flies are starting to roll in for this one too--- Jimmie sent in a great set of March Brown dries.

The due date for this is May 1 ---- who else wants to jump in?

when does the quill gordan's come off out west and up north. They are coming off big time right now here and are one of my favorite spring patterns. basically announce the beginning of the eastern dry fly fishing season.

Dry - #16

My personal favorite though - Emerger #16

I think I will be tying up a Martis Midge - basically a blood midge emerger in size 16. WE killed em on the lake with these last year, and the hatch is just starting now per the hatch chart for the lake, only problem is we can't get the boat in the water due to all the snow on the roads. Might have to drive up, hike in a bit and launch the float tubes and test drive these before mailing though - sounds like a good excuse to go fishing.

Here is a link if your interested in reading about the midge pattern and seeing some local hatch charts and how to tie a few pretty effective patterns.

After further reading, seems the quill Gordan does not hatch in the midwest/West. I'll keep looking for a fly to tie for this. I do have a darkish stylized "hairs ear" nymph that works during these Quill Gordan hatches, that may work for other hatches out west...I'll think about it. Don't put me down for anything specific yet.

I'm in!!!

Will be either a BWO or Green Drake......too early for brown or yellow stones here in Maine!

Wow.....my first swap in about a year!

Early I like a wet/nymph.......but as things heat up i like to go Dry/emerger. Guess we'll have to see what pops off the jaws in the end!

Just let me know if I'm in!
