    Ooops, I forgot that after some experimenting I ended up tying these on a #14 200R and not a standard Nymph hook.

    Thanks again Larry. The PICs are excellent. And thanks to the rest of you. As a new tyer with no fly shop handy, it's hard to come up with model flies worthy of copying. I assure you I will be attempting to tie some of these patterns.

    You are welcome! I couldn't agree more, there are some outstanding patterns in this swap that have me really inspired to tie some up for this coming fishing season.
