    Here's the pattern I'm using... keep in mind it's only the second time tying it and I have no instructions to go by. It still needs touching up but when I've got it down pat it will look great I believe.

    Excellent Yetavon, welcome aboard!

    Hopefully we'll get a few more folks in this swap in the next few days and then I'll send out my address in a PM to all.

    Here's a quick shot of mine. I think I'm going to add a thin skin shell on the back and some a barbell weight and call it a day.

    i can't figure out how to tie the upside down pattern.
    but maybe after the swap i'll be able to get it.

    all good

    i am really trying to re-learn some technique.

    For the upside down hook, a rotary vice would help. I don't have one.... so I just put the hook in the vice and tied very carefully. Only pricked myself a few times too.


    Also, For Everyone Else In The Swap.....

    The only weights that I could get of decent size are plain lead weights. I know that some places in the country don't allow lead, and some fisherman just choose not to use them.

    So I'll leave it up to the swap.... do you guys want me to add the weights to my fly or just let it off? I'd hate to send out a pattern that you guys can't use.

    Or if some want the weight and some don't, I'd be happy to tie for each person and then label them.
