    If you dont mind an English applicant I will be up for this, will tie a danica pattern that I am guessing will work for the green drakes as well.

    Cheers

    I've finished The Cream Mayflies,they are a simple pattern that catch fish,as I stated elseware all I have to do is Tie The Foam Beetles for The #1 Terrestial Swap.
    I will have a play around tomorrow on my newest Computer as I printed Frank & Ard's links as in the past I've had trouble posting Pictures especially The Tie along ones,maybe I'm a dumb ?/////?.

    This is my submission for this swap. A variation of the Clouser Green Drake. I did not have a light ginger cape for the rear hackle wraps, so I substituted a dirty cream.

    Recipe:
    Size 10 Allen Fly fishing Dry Fly Hook
    Tail: Moose body
    Dub: Yellow Antron
    Rear Hackle: Dirty Cream
    Wing: Deer Hair
    Front Hackle: One ginger, one griz
    Thread: 8/0 light cahill

    I have tested this fly and the vast majority of the time it lands upright! These are big and meaty and according to Bob Clouser the smallmouth love em!

    Enjoy.
    -Forrest

    Mark the flies are on their way. I am sending these in with two other swaps. I tried to send you a PM but I am not sure my PM's are getting through to you. Please let me know if you get a PM from me. Thanks!
