    No worries Rob, being the last guy with several days left is not such a bad thing

    Thanks again for getting back to me!

    Look forward to seeing your flies,

    Just as a reminder please join Utah Stream Access Coalition or let me know if you are already a member if you would like to receive a bonus fly!

    So far I only know of a few of you that have joined and no worries if for what ever reason you don't want to, please only sign up if you believe in the mission.

    Thanks, they'll get out Monday.



    Recipe:

    Hook: #10 Gamakatsu S10S (dry fly, straight eye)
    Thread: Pearsalls Gossamer (Rust-ish colored)
    Tail: Three pheasant tail fibers
    Body: Apricot Labradoodle hair (or Australian possum in a pale cream color)
    Hackle: Speckled hen saddle feather, no more than two turns
    Wing: The tip end of the hackle feather, tied into position*

    Adapted from Dick Talleur's Trout Flies for the 21st Century, who got it from Thomas Ames' Hatch Guide for NE Streams, but the fly was designed by George Schlotter.

    *I should add that I erred on the side of a longer wing, because I figured it could be clipped in the field, if needed.



    Edit: Went out today--looking forward to seeing what everyone else tied.

    Awesome, I think it's important to get flies to the swap-master on time, so I'm really happy they made it with a whole day to spare!

    Thanks for running a fun swap, Watson (I really want to call you "Doc").

    PS: I updated a previous post with the recipe.
    Cheers,
