    Mark, would you all have room for an extra person on this one? I know you have already gotten one set of flies so I don't mind being one fly down. If I can join, I would tie the Letort Cricket. Let me know...

    Forrest-- we're already at 15 tyers- so it's a lot of lies to tie--

    That said, I have no objection if folks are willing to tie 15 flies instead of 14.

    We had a lot of interest n the midge swap we ran earlier this year, so much so i added a Midge Swap #2 that also filled up (some folks were in both)

    So a couple of options

    1. Stay at present 15 tyers (everyone ties 14 flies)
    2. Add Famill00 to make it 16 (everyone ties 15 flies)
    3. Add a second terrestrial swap or Hopper swap

    What say you all?

    If you choose option 3, I'll jump in as well. I somehow missed this one. Need to start paying more attention to the swaps.

    Heres the daddy I'm fine tuning for the swap. Not sure about the legs, any suggestions? Some nice looking flea's been posted already, this is shaping up to be a good swap. Scott

    Just noticed I can't post attachments, mustn't have enough experience? If you want to view it there's a photo in my album or its on the uk forum in the fly tying section. It won't let me post links here either, sorry

    Recipe for Foam Beetle.
    Hook: # 8 Grub Hook
    Thread: Black
    Tail: White Synthetic Para Post Material
    Body: Teal Medium Chenille
    Legs: Brown Hen Hackle wound or tied Beard style
    Back: Orange Foam

    Any Colour Foam & legs can be use I've used Orange as a Sight Indicator, I've formed them however a 5/16 Cut piece of Foam will do the same job.
    All you do is after you see a Rise when the Fish are feeding on Beetles,as with The Gum Trees(Eucalypts) over here there are literally thousands of these Beetles around,is to cover The Rise give The Line a twitch,then hang on as the Flies are really belted.
    I don't know whether the Beetles went with The Gum Trees to The USA as I've seen heaps of Gum Trees in California.
