Gentlemen,
I did not plan on being 1st to ask for exit pass, but my schedule in Dec is fully packed with business travel. So my time on bench will be limited, additionally wet flied with hackle are not my best ties!
I'm going to request that members in waiting take my slot in Holiday Swap! I rather have someone fill slot now, then me lagging behind or not getting flies out in timely manner!
Thanks for your consideration and let's hope I'm not banned from other swaps!

Dear Mods,

I vote for him to be removed completely from this board!! How dare him to exit a swap a full 6 weeks BEFORE the deadline!! Does he not understand that standard procedure is to notify the swap's host 6 weeks AFTER the deadline!! Acts of consideration like this shouldn't be permitted here!!!

JH



Suckerspawn,

Just goofing off, your early exit is fine and appreciated. You are more than welcome to join any swap that I may host in the future.

Now that made me laugh - been there ! I have not tied in months. I just sat down and opened a beer and started cleaning my bench up.

Suckerspawn - take a kit on the road with you. I have spent a few nights in the hotel lobby sipping a drink and tying a few flies.
Safe travels !

Well, here's the pattern I tied, sorry,no pics at the moment, as my camera appears to be MIA...

Hare's Ear Soft Hackle

Hook: Standard or 2xL nymph hook, #10-18 (swap flies are on #14 JS 225's)
Thread: 8/0 Camel UNI thread
Tail: Speckled hen hackle fibers
Body: natural Hare's mask dubbing
Hackle: Speckled hen saddle

not the "official"pattern, but I've been using these with great results for many years now, so I have no problem with my slight alterations.

My flys went in the mail this morning. I tied the Birds Nest which is technically a soft hackle fly, but I thought it might not exactly fit with the others in this swap, so I decided to throw in an extra soft hackle that I tied up as a Christmas fly. No guarantee the Christmas fly will catch fish, but it was fun to tie. I'm really looking forward to seeing the results of this swap.

Birds Nest
Hook: Daiichii 1550 #14
Thread: Olive Griffith 14/0 sheer
Tail: Mallard flank
Abdomen: Australian Possum natural
Rib: UTC fine gold wire
Hackle: Mallard flank
Thorax: Australian Possum natural

Christmas Fly 2011
Hook: Mustad 94840 #16
Thread: Claret Griffith 14/0 sheer
Tag: UTC fine green wire
Abdomen: Red floss
Rib: UTC fine green wire
Thorax: Peacock herl
Hackle: Starling
Resized Image

And this is what rain on my week off produced. My wife won't let me use this pic for Christmas cards:
