  1. Default Foam/Hair flies of 2008 swap

    Still waiting on recipes for your flies. Just pm me and I will post them

    1. Aroostookbasser: Jassids



    recipe for jassid:
    Thread: your choice.....I like beige and brown over back......markers can color it black anyway.
    Hackle: hen......webby
    Body: Black meat tray foam from the local butcher shop......can use 2mm fly foam
    ......but hey ....Why Not Recycle !!!!

    size to need.....I prefer 6/8/10's




    2. Joni: Mouse



    HOOK: Bass Bug Hook
    THREAD: Brown 3/0
    TAIL: Tan Ultra Chenille
    BODY: Muskrat
    BACK: Tan close cell foam
    and my leaf bug



    3. McFly: Hi-vis Spiders



    the recipe for my spider is
    1..Select a strip of closed cell foam about a quarter inch wide and a bout a inch and half long. tie down to the hook covering about 3/4 of the hook shank. Move the thread back to the starting point.

    2.Tie in peacock herl and wrap up the hook shank.

    3. Pull the foam forward over the shank of the hook to create a humped back. Secure to the hook at the same point you started tying the foam down.

    3. Pull the foam back over the hook and secure to the starting point. Trim the foam to leave a slight tag end extending over part of the humped back.

    4. If desired for visibility, tie in a small bunch of bright foam or yarn on top of the fly at the same point the front or head of the fly is tied down. trim short.

    5.Tie in a pair of rubber legs on each side of the hook as shown. If you need to, straighten the legs out before you cinch the thread tight.

    6.Clip the legs to be even on both sides of the fly and cement your whip knot.



    4. Greenwood...Ant


    The wet ant recipe is:

    Hook: size 12 3906B

    Abdomen: #6 black uni-thread built into an elongated shape beginning just beyond the barb and extending to in front of the point; Lay in two strips of peacock herl on the bottom of the abdomen;

    Hackle: Black irridescent hackle from cock pheasant's neck tied in at the segment area;

    Thorax: Build a smaller bump than the rear segment and tie off;

    Use a drop of head cement on each thread segment, and fish as a shallow dropper (or by itself if you're really daring!).
