Caught three nice little brookies on wiggle stoneflies.
Was only out for about 3 hours, but had a great time.
You were within 100 yards of my house!

I screwed up, Geoff had mentioned that he wouldn't be able to make this one, so we now have one more space left (to make 12 flies from 13 tyers)

That's funny. Small world!

I tied up a couple of my swap pattern last night. It's really a pretty easy streamer to make so I hope to get them done soon. It is a #4 3XL, all white - marabou and antron. The unique feature is the action of the fly in water. It is heavily weighted with lead wire along one side of the body. This causes the fly to sort of roll while it drops when you stall your retrieve. It is a much more natural mimic of an injured bait fish than the cone-head dive motion. I'll try to get a picture up sometime before sending then.

The giant buggers are done and on their way to Mark!

Recipe:
Size 6 3XL 2XH Hook
10 wraps .030 lead
Marabou Tail (Two Fluffs)
Gold Flashabou for tail accent
Bugger Chenille
Hackle (Saddle)
Gold wire for rib

These are much larger than I am used to!

6 down 6 to go...this is the tan yellow, and i've run out of some materials (Estaz and Marabou) for this version, so the other six will be olive. Submit your preference to swap-meister before he ships them out!

I'll also post a list of materials i used with specific colors as well as a step by step when all are done.
