I don't know how much of a stickler Mark is on the theme, but it is Winged Wets, mudbug...meaning that soft hackles (and the flymph variation on soft hackled flies) are not winged.

And I love the Dark Cahill, the golden mallard wing is one of my favorites.

I am going to push myself and go with the Leadwing Coachman. I have everything except the paired Mallard wing feathers. I might have to but more than one set before I get it right...

Great idea Mark.

I've been caught up in a move for the past few weeks; now moved out of the Poconos and into a new (old) house in Merrimac, MA.

Wet flies are a favorite of mine. I got lucky and spent a day tying winged wets with Don Bastian at LLBean's anchor store in Freeport, ME this Summer, so I've got a few new ideas.

I'm in and will name a pattern by the end of this week; I have to take a look at Bergman's book Trout before I make up my mind; only 500+ winged wets to chose from in that book!

Pocono

PS - If you include streamers under the heading of wet flies, then I've got a series of Carrie Stevens patterns that I've been tying with Selene Dumaine that might make good swap flies. But, if not, then classic winged wets are just fine with me.

The streamer may have a wing of any material and a tail tied in at back that streams behind it.

Out of the 3 wet flies in that thread the soft hackle and the flymph would both be good choices for tiers early in their learning, but they won't be easy as pie, they will push you a bit.


Just for your research you can find a bunch of classic wets HERE, and HERE

Soft Hackles HERE

Soft Hackles and Flymphs HERE


EDIT - I'm not gonna delete my post because I think it has some useful info, but I forgot that this is a WINGED WET swap. So from the tie along thread only the Leadwing Coachman is correct, and only my first two links are correct.

Just had look at that second link there Mudbug, and that Fontinalis Fin is a dream. I might have to switch up my plan, all things considered!! I even changed my avatar to that fly.

Either that, or tie two flies...

So for wings, what is the best material to use?
Goose? Turkey?

Seems like those are the species that come in the greatest variety of colors.
Just asking as this Fontinalis Fin is looking more and more appealing, if not for the swap, just as something to tie.

Wow, that is an absolute beauty! Amazing fly. I just love those old patterns.

Can't wait to hear how stacking three colors together works. Good to Pocono jumping in here, if anyone can advise you on his it would Alan.

Actually, what you want for most of the wet fly wings is Mallard; either natural or dyed. Goose will work, as will Turkey, but you get a distinctively different (and I think better) look with dyed mallard.

Don Bastian sells dyed mallard wing feathers and from the supply that he had with him this July, he probably still has some; with very high quality. Message him at his website and he'll probably have what you need.
