That my friend would be a losing bet! I do tie nice non-articulated flies, I'll admit that but now we're talking 2 hooks, so that's twice the flies I can screw up! Now that said, I also tie VERY slowly. I'm one of those seriously anal retentive or OCD, you chose the title, type guys. I have to clean my bench after every fly. No wonder it takes me weeks to tie up my sulfur stash!

If you guys don't mind, I think I'll tie the Articulated Ice Pick I tied for last year's meat box swap.

I'll make mine the chubby muffin.

I just tied some singles for myself and love how they look.

Just gotta think of a back end for it. This will be fun.

Great! I'm glad to see there was so much interest.


I agree that Foxgap should definately take part. This is a great chance to try something new and see how others tie similar flies. No one here is going to bust your stones about what your flies look like so give it a go! Like someone else said these big streamers aren't supposed to be works of art. Whatever you spin up will be great.

If Foxgap is in then the swap is full. If not we still have one spot left. Here is the lineup so far:

flyfishermanj - TBA
goodfortune - TBA
SBecker - TBA
sniperfreak223 - TBA
GRP - Black Circus Peanut
midnightangler - Pictured fly (not sure the name)
Jay348 - Chubby muffin with something on the back
HuntinFool - TBA
Foxgap239------------will he or won't he-------

Articulated Ice Pick


That my friend is a very nice fly, in fact I think my brother may have swiped that out of my box when I wasn't looking!

Yea, I really liked the ice pick you sent last time. Can not remember how I lost mine. I need another!

okay then, any color preferences? If not, I'm thinking brown over yellow, as kinda a baby brown trout pattern.

I use a loop of 7-strand beading wire and a few glass beads to prevent fouling.

I use a similar technique. Some red coated wire from the jewelry section of Michael's. Not exactly sure of the brand or the strength since I'm at work right now. Then slip a bead or two (depending on bead size and fly size) over the wire.
