Field tested the orange ant last night on the EB Brandywine. 15 inch brown certainly liked it!

Correction: The under wing on the cricket should have said four strands of purple crystal hair. Apparently proof reading is not a strong point.

well,still have 15 of each to go, but before I forget, here are the recipes for my submissions:

Foam Hopper

Hook: TMC 200R or equivalent, #6-#12 (these are #8 JS 430's)
Thread: Tan 8/0 UNI thread
Back: tan 2mm foam
Abdomen: strip of 2mm yellow foam, tied in at the bend and wrapped forward.
wing: natural deer hair
Rear Legs: knotted brown round rubber
thorax: amber superfine dubbing
head: remainder of back foam pulled back over thorax and tied down over wing.
front legs: tan barred centipede legs


Periodical Cicada

Hook: Mustad 3366 #4
Thread Black 6/0 UNI thread
Back: Black 2mm foam
Abdomen: blend of orange rabbit and orange Ice Dub
Wing: pearl Krystal flash edged with 5 strands of orange Krystal Flash
Legs: Orange barred Centipede legs
Thorax: same as abdomen
Head: remainder of back foam pulled back over thorax and tied down over wing.

The hopper is just a generic pattern I use primarily as an indicator fly on dry/dropper rigs, and since I couldn't get a woven cicada to float right, I just tied the periodical cicada pattern from the Spring 2008 issue of Fly Tyer magazine.

Here is a picture of the hoppers I'm tying for the swap. I just started tying them up and this is the first one.

Cool! I am starting to feel unworthy to be in this swap. You guys are tying some really nice flies.
I am going to tell my daughter to save that foam for me. She is expecting twins so there should be plenty.
