Default Brook Trout Fly Swap, Spring 29012

Thanks to Brent (Aroostookbasser) for suggesting this one--

Note: We changed the name from the Brook Trout Mega Swap to the Brook Trout Fly Swap and reduced the number of participants from the original 25 back down to 13.

Here's a great opportunity to fill up a fly box with an assortment of proven brook trout patterns. Nymphs wets, dries and streamers are all eligible

This swap will be open to the first 13 tyers that respond-- each participant ties up 12 flies and will get back a 12 flies-- one from each of the other tyers.

Due Date is May 1, 2012

I will send out a PM with my address etc to all

2. Fire instructor - Bead Head Pheasant Tail Nymph RECEIVED
3. Famill00 San Juan Worm RECEIVED

A question of preference?

I was taught to tie the Pheasant Tail Nymph with a peacock herl thorax. I wanted to go over this fly from several sources, to get it "correct" for the Swap, and I've now seen PTN's with thorax's made from peacock herl, florescent green antron yarn, several shades of green dubbing, and even one with green wire (wasn't a bead head) to give it weight.

So as I get ready to start my BH-PTN "mass production", are there any preferences? If no specific preferences, I'll likely use the peacock as I was taught, but I figured I'd ask....

Whatever you want to tie will work for most everyone I'd say

Mark,

In the driftless area in WI, when the water is stained after a rain you go to a San Juan Worm. Please put me down for a San Juan Worm.

Ditto. I was going to sign up, but I'm not sure that I've got enough time right now to tie up 25 flies of anything for a swap. Those pink squirrels are downright deadly.
