I tied up some Slumpbusters...it is a pattern by John Barr (more famous for Copper John). They are tied in a variety of colors and sizes...most I tied on a size 6 but some as small at 10s. Also, sorry guys...had to tie them with Brass...tungsten was just a bit too pricey....The glue is the toughest part of this fly...

SLUMPBUSTER (Olive)
Hook: Size 4–12 Tiemco 5263
Thread: Olive 70-denier Ultra Thread
Cone: Gold tungsten, size 4–6 (large), size 8–10 (medium)
Rib: Chartreuse Ultra Wire (Brassie)
Body: Peacock Sparkle Braid
Wing/Tail: Olive pine squirrel
Collar: Olive pine squirrel

I highly recommend the John Barr book, Barr Flies. The best place other than the book to find a description on how to tie this fly is at www.charliesflyboxinc.com/flybox

Hey dudes. I had a head cement mishap.

I am scrambling to get done. I am about half way done but my flashabou I like to use for these particular clousers was a casualty.

Sorry for the wait.

I dropped my flies into the mail today.

Instead of PTs, I tied a variation of the Copper John for the swap. The recipe is as follows:

Hook: #14 2XL Nymph
Bead: 3/32” Gold
Weight: Lead Wire
Thread: Red UTC 70-Denier
Tail: Amber Goose Biots
Abdomen: Brassie Copper Wire
Wing Case: Shopping Bag Material (cut into strips), Pearl Flashabou, and 5-Minute Epoxy
Thorax: WAPSI Sow-Scud Dubbing – Bighorn Orange
Legs: Partridge

I hope everyone (and the fish ) likes them.

Just about done mine. Brian and I are going to ship ours together soon.

David,
I tied you one of my emerald shiner double bunnies. I'll include one for bruno since he lost a fly box. Size 6 white double bunny with a chartreuse/clear estaz body, white zonker strips, and a few strands of flashabou and peacock herl over the back. It's partially for recon from you guys to see if I should tie more. Of course, I won't and bruno will be whacking them with it when we are at the salmon.

Is anyone going to take pictures and post what was submitted. I would love to see the end result...not to mention it might help those who are still tying for their trips (myself included).

Just curious.

Someone usually photographs them. My camera stinks, else I would.

See the past results on the sticky PAFF swaps thread on top of the forum.

I don't believe I ever received photos or recipes for the last swap. If someone gets them to me, I would be happy to add them to the swap pages.
