    I'm game for tying 13, if the others are up for it I say let's do it. I have 6 done already and 7 more should not be a problem. Personally, I like the thought of a fly tied in the US on a Japanese hook catching a fish in Australia

    Even though it's a rather simple pattern I thought I'd try another SBS, partially for my own learning but also in case any new tiers might want to try one. It's posted here in anyone is interested.

    Here's my materials list for the fly, the Krystal Czech nymph



    Hook: Daiichi #12 wide gape scud hook
    Thread: Uni 8/0 black
    Underbody: lead tape
    Back: 1/8" Sow-Scud back, clear
    Abdomen: Krystal dub dark hare's ear
    Adbomen rib: Uni-French Silver oval tinsel, small
    Thorax: band of Angora goat burnt orange dubbing and band of Krystal dub black
    Ribbing: 2x mono wrapped over whole fly for segmentation
    Drop of Sally Hansen's Hard As Nails on top of thorax.

    Here's the finished product.

    - William

    13 is okay by me as well, though a terribly unlucky number. Perhaps I can gleen some dubbing from my black cat that just broke my mirror?

    I will try and post a step by step after the swap but I never post pictures of my flies until you receive the. There has to be some mystery left in the universe.
    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.

    13 no problem especially since it's Brian! I do dislike that number very much in many ways so I'll make more than that for the swapmeister just so it's not that number! 13 and bananas bad karma!

    One of the reasons the swap I ran had 15 ! Get past that number!

    I fear no number, when you have luck like mine (all bad) numbers mean nothing unless its a bill.

    So I am thinking Hare's Ear Hotspot with the hotspot being pink and ribbing being gold. Size 14 should suffice. LMK if its too much of an overlap, otherwise I will crank out my 13.

    Sounds good, overlap is fine. I have a feeling some of these flies will be lost.

    Just waiting for Eunan and Reese check in and OK tying an extra bug, then I'll PM Brian and let him know.

    Eunan would like back out of the swap due to some fly orders he just received with a tight timeline. So I sent a PM to Brian (liphookedau) and offered him the slot. If he accepts it, we'll still be full at 12 flies each.

    That's all. Keep tying!
