    Hey folks.....just a word on the DUE DATE...........
    Need to close this and get the flies back to all of our tyers by the end of the third week in September. Going to be guiding moose hunters the last week of Sept. and the first week of October.

    So the official close date will be September 21st...........

    All flies must be here by that time so I can get them split up and back to you before I go to camp.

    To speed the return process please send along a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope..........instead of cash.

    The complete list of tyers to follow this post ........and patterns will be listed. If you haven't posted your pattern please post it so we can know.

    Ok, I am still kinda new to the swaps, but just to be clear, we are tying up 6 flies and have them out to you by sep 21 - correct?

    Just finished the Wooley bugger swap and want to get on these this week since the (work) boss is out of town and I gotta stick around the phone in case anything comes up

    Default Re: "off pattern" fly swap

    OK, you wanted off patterns,

    I have tied up 6 mini goblins

    These are kind of a wooley bugger with a wetfly hackle on a size 14 with a bit of a color kick.

    The original goblin is big and bulky, but since I don't have a lot of luck with big flies, I tied this one smaller.

    The original goblin was designed to be a combination of a bugger, bunny fly and a maribou. Most effective in murky or muddy water, during runoff or after a storm.

    The mini is not so obtrusive but is intended to use the same contrast combinations Black body, black crystal chenille, Black and White (grizzley hackle) and orange (zonker) to get the attention of the fish when the water gets murky.

    Recipe
    Size 14 nymph hook (mustad 3399A is what I tied em on)
    Black 6/0 thread
    Black crystal chenille
    extra long grizzley hackle (2x normal) tied in just 3 or 4 wraps like a wet fly
    copper wire
    Top it off with a bright orange rabbit fur wing (I cut it from orange zonkers).

    I tied a couple extra and hope to get them on the river this weekend.

    Dave
