Default Re: 2013 Swap #1: Czech-style nymph

I'm game for tying 13, if the others are up for it I say let's do it. I have 6 done already and 7 more should not be a problem. Personally, I like the thought of a fly tied in the US on a Japanese hook catching a fish in Australia

Even though it's a rather simple pattern I thought I'd try another SBS, partially for my own learning but also in case any new tiers might want to try one. It's posted here in anyone is interested.

Here's my materials list for the fly, the Krystal Czech nymph

Hook: Daiichi #12 wide gape scud hook
Thread: Uni 8/0 black
Underbody: lead tape
Back: 1/8" Sow-Scud back, clear
Abdomen: Krystal dub dark hare's ear
Adbomen rib: Uni-French Silver oval tinsel, small
Thorax: band of Angora goat burnt orange dubbing and band of Krystal dub black
Ribbing: 2x mono wrapped over whole fly for segmentation
Drop of Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails on top of thorax.

Here's the finished product.

13 is okay by me as well, though a terribly unlucky number. Perhaps I can gleen some dubbing from my black cat that just broke my mirror?

I will try and post a step by step after the swap but I never post pictures of my flies until you receive the. There has to be some mystery left in the universe.

13 no problem especially since it's Brian! I do dislike that number very much in many ways so I'll make more than that for the swapmeister just so it's not that number! 13 and bananas bad karma!

One of the reasons the swap I ran had 15 ! Get past that number!

I fear no number, when you have luck like mine (all bad) numbers mean nothing unless its a bill.

Default Re: 2013 Swap #1: Czech-style nymph

So I am thinking Hare's Ear Hotspot with the hotspot being pink and ribbing being gold. Size 14 should suffice. LMK if its too much of an overlap, otherwise I will crank out my 13.

Sounds good, overlap is fine. I have a feeling some of these flies will be lost.

Just waiting for Eunan and Reese check in and OK tying an extra bug, then I'll PM Brian and let him know.

Default Re: 2013 Swap #1: Czech-style nymph

Eunan would like back out of the swap due to some fly orders he just received with a tight timeline. So I sent a PM to Brian (liphookedau) and offered him the slot. If he accepts it, we'll still be full at 12 flies each.

That's all. Keep tying!
