Jimmie- that's a great one.

Looking forward to seeing the flies in this swap, this is going to be a good one.

I'll tie something - TBD.

Can someone point me to a photo or ingredients for a "Red Ass?" If it is too similar to what I was planning, I'll pick something else.

Thanks!

BlueDun-

Great glad to have you in the swap.

There are a bunch of different variations of Red Asses out there, but usually a red thread butt, peacock body, a turn or two of partridge for a soft hackle, and red head. Here’s a link to a pic:

Whoops. Another revision for my tie. It's the same fly. Just found the original pattern. I'm a traditionalist so I'm pleased that I found this pattern.
The "Mormon Girl" was created by Bob Carmichael, and Roy Donnely in Jackson Hole in the 1940's.

Just finishing up my offerings. A simple Soft Hackle. Olive silk over yellow thread, with a HINT of copper ribbing.(LOL) and finished with a nice whisp of CDL for a collar.

I am in like three swaps so I thought I better get busy. I know I am way ahead, but it is one of those days that LOOKS beautiful (blue skies and a few clouds, soft breeze) but LIKE 19 DEGREES!!!!!!
I wish it would snow to warm up!

Anyway, I know we do softhackle swaps, but when you say wet flies, I can only think softhackles with of course the Royal Coachman wet, but I don't have enough duck feather for wings...LOL

I'll do a Mallard and Claret if there is room for me. It will fit in with the Salmon Fly swap as I extrapolated the Mallet from this pattern for a swap that required you to create a Spey pattern from a wet fly pattern.
Silk and Coq de leon eh Joni? I think I knew her back in '77
