Great Boser, glad you jumped in.

And Craig, great link, some very buggy looking flies--- I bet they'd work great on Saltwater hooks for Reds too.

I like to think I'm at least a little responsible for getting the Free State guys (and gals) turned on to carp - at least a lot of them, but they have really excelled in the tying department. When they were forming their group, my partner and I did several programs for them, and we still do now and then.

I don't have (or maybe I just don't make) enough time to tie as much as I should, and I've settled on a couple of patterns or variations on patterns that work for me. As a guide, I also hate to watch a client toss a fly into the rocks or bushes if I've spent 15 minutes tying it. So, we tie "guide flies" that only take a minute or two to tie in most cases.

Maybe we miss some choosy fish, but we've had 30 fish days on our simple flies. And Mark, you're right. We fish a lot of freshwater variants of our bonefish and redfish patterns on carp... or is it that we fish a lot of saltwater variants of our carp patterns on bonefish and redfish? Chicken....egg....????

Dan,

I was hoping we'd get a few more folks for this one-- you're welcome to join in.

How does a due date of February 15 sound for everyone?

If everyone ties up 12 flies, even though it looks like we'll have a lot less tyers than that, I'll divide the flies up so everyone will get 12 back.

Joni's flies are already here and Boser just joined the swap, so how is everyone else doing?

I'm a die-hard Steelie fan, but these Beauties are fun when the Steelies are nowhere to be found...

peregrines, Sorry I didnt reply earlier. Feb 15th looks fine for me. I tied mine and sent them early because you know us men always procrastinate and I didnt want to be finishing up around Valentines day as I better take the wife out so I can keep spending money on my hobbies. HA!!!

Regards, Boser
