Hi Mark.
Has there ever been a Beetle Pattern Swap as I haven't noticed any?
They are quite easy to Tie look good & catch lots of Fish & the variations are unlimited.

John, Paul, George... Beetles are probably better all summer patterns than hoppers, great idea. I'd get in on it.

Now we wait for Ringo, er...Mark...

La jolla, wow, that would be a great pattern! Much fancier than my beetle. I have a simple foam pattern that cleaned up for me last year. Just a foam cylinder with peacock herl and some hackle and I'd be happy to tie it for the swap.

I was thinking (and some of yu are learning just how dangerous that is....)

If the swap is open to beetles and ants, there should be no problem getting a dozen tyers to participate, as those get used for most all cold and warm species. Additionally, there are enough varient's on the patterns that there should be a good mix of interesting ties!

I'm tying later today as part of a demo-tie at the local LL Bean, that our club is supporting, and all I need is some rubber leg material. Hopefully, they will have some in stock.

I was thinking the same thing, Rick. Beetles and Ants Swap, it would be a great one, everyone should be carrying a stock of beetles and ants.

Have fun tying today!
