    Jimmie- that's a great one.

    Looking forward to seeing the flies in this swap, this is going to be a good one.

    I'll tie something - TBD.

    Can someone point me to a photo or ingredients for a "Red Ass?" If it is too similar to what I was planning, I'll pick something else.

    Thanks!

    BlueDun-

    Great glad to have you in the swap.

    There are a bunch of different variations of Red Asses out there, but usually a red thread butt, peacock body, a turn or two of partridge for a soft hackle, and red head. Here’s a link to a pic:

    Whoops. Another revision for my tie. It's the same fly. Just found the original pattern. I'm a traditionalist so I'm pleased that I found this pattern.
    The "Mormon Girl" was created by Bob Carmichael, and Roy Donnely in Jackson Hole in the 1940's.

    Just finishing up my offerings. A simple Soft Hackle. Olive silk over yellow thread, with a HINT of copper ribbing.(LOL) and finished with a nice whisp of CDL for a collar.

    I am in like three swaps so I thought I better get busy. I know I am way ahead, but it is one of those days that LOOKS beautiful (blue skies and a few clouds, soft breeze) but LIKE 19 DEGREES!!!!!!
    I wish it would snow to warm up!

    Anyway, I know we do softhackle swaps, but when you say wet flies, I can only think softhackles with of course the Royal Coachman wet, but I don't have enough duck feather for wings...LOL

    I'll do a Mallard and Claret if there is room for me. It will fit in with the Salmon Fly swap as I extrapolated the Mallet from this pattern for a swap that required you to create a Spey pattern from a wet fly pattern.
    Silk and Coq de leon eh Joni? I think I knew her back in '77
    Each smallest act of kindness - even just words of hope when they are needed, the remembrance of a birthday, a compliment that engenders a smile - reverberates across great distances and spans of time, affecting lives unknown to the one whose generous spirit was the source of this good echo, because kindness is passed on and grows each time it's passed, until a simple courtesy becomes an act of selfless courage years later and far away.
