    Default Nymph Swap Fall 2012

    This thread will serve as a spot where the swappers from the Fall 2012 Nymph Swap can show their flys and give a recipe. Enjoy!

    With all the step by steps, I thought I'd try one, though it's an easy fly. Sorry some of the pics are out of focus...

    It's my version of a zebra sugar cube fly. It can be fished in the film as an emerger, but I found it most effective trailing behind a beadhead nymph. Can also be tied parachute style and is great in olive.

    Materials:

    Hook: Umpqua 202 size 18
    Thread: 12/0 black
    Tail: White antron yarn divided in half
    Abdomen: black thread
    Ribbing: 6/0 white thread ribbing (makes subtle ribbing, 3/0 more pronounced)
    Sugar cube: white foam strip
    Hackle: black, whiting's 100's size 24



    1. Lay down thread base all the way down the curve of the hook shank



    2. Tie in antron yard tail and 6/0 white tying thread then advance thread up about 3/4 up the shank. Tie in foam strip leaving about one hook eye in front of it.



    3. Wrap white tying thread up the shank for ribbing and trim antron tail as a trailing shuck. Tie in the hackle behind the foam strip and pack thread wraps in front of the foam strip to help it stand up.



    4. 2 to 3 turns of hackle behind the foam and tie it off. Trim and whip finish.




    I had some time while my daughter napped this afternoon and got mine tied. Now just to get to the post office before the deadline.



    Thanks!
    - William

    Here is a sneak peak and first dry run of the Hares Ear Flash. Getting back into tying nymphs I need to focus on spacing and cleaner messy dubbining. The head needs to be cleaned up a bit, I know. But I like the bling. Sorry about the crappy photo skills. iphone doesn't like close ups.

    Well, I finished the Hares Ear Flash.
    Thankfully they are a bit of a shaggy pattern, cover any mistakes. Pictures don't really show the bling.
    I'll be sending them out next week. Crossing a border can inevitably take more time.

    Materials were quite straight forward.
    hooks: #12 streamer hooks
    thread: tan
    tail: red squirrel
    body: Ice Dub Holog Gold
    wrap: round gold tinsel
    wing case:Pearlescent Sheet






    Hope they stack up to all the incredible tiers here.
    Cheers
    Phil
