Re: Winged Wet Fly Swap
I'll jump in here Mark, but I need to pick a pattern. I'll get back to you on that part.

Re: Winged Wet Fly Swap
I would like to join,at this stage I'm going through my boxes to see which materials I have or need before I advise the pattern I will Tie,as I might have to take the gun for a walk to acquire some needed materials.
As I read it the winging materials are fairly open however Deer Hair would be excluded as the Fly would fall into The Dry Fly Catagory.

Re: Winged Wet Fly Swap
AJ and Brian glad to have you both in this swap.

Brian-- any winged wet fly would be good for this one-- (excluding nymphs and streamers). Some caddis pupae patterns like the Lafontaine's Emergent Sparkle Pupa use deer hair for a sparse wing but are designed to be fished subsurface, so if you have a favorite wet pattern with deer hair wings that would be fine.

By the way Brian, since you're in Australia, don't worry about return postage-- since the US postal service won't honor stamps from Oz, my local bank doesn't cash foreign checks and getting US currency would be a pain I'll just pic up the return postage (it's cheap).

Re: Winged Wet Fly Swap
This sounds like fun. I'll jump in. Probably tie the butcher or a black and orange... or just make it up as I go. We'll see what happens.

Re: Winged Wet Fly Swap
I am considering this...I'm such a sucker for swaps! And I love tying wets even though I don't fished the winged variety much...

Alright, I'll do it!

Put me down for a LaFontaine Diving Caddis, Mark.

I will go in. I will need to do some research to find a pattern.
