Ha ha ha you guys are quick. I haven't even tied one yet! I guess feel free to tie a second pattern if you're bored...

I'll be sure to get those PM's out tonight.

Wow! That's impressive Keith. Knocked 'em out in a mere 6 hours. What was good timing for you was bad timing for me. I smashed my finger between a concrete floor and a piece of steel just minutes after I committed to this swap yesterday. After 5 stiches to basically put the end of my finger back on I am on the mend. I am going to play the role of the "crippled" fly tyer this evening and try to crank out a few flies. We'll see how it goes. I may need to give it a few days before I get real serious.



Sorry to hear about your finger, DC; hang in there and remember: Tying flies is just like riding a bicycle...you may just need some training wheels for awhile.

The fly is beyond simple. That's why I can tie it. But they work.
Heal quickly, dc.

Here is what I am planning on tying for the golden stone nymph. I am going to tweak it a little. I need to pick up some yellow or amber goose biots because that is the real color of the tails on the golden stoneflies (not black). Not that the fish would care ... but I do. I am also thinking about making them a bit bigger and heavier by tying up to a size 8 hook with a larger bead to get it to the bottom quicker. I am going to need a little time to get these all tied. Tying with the bum finger didn't go too bad. Honestly, the hardest part was getting the damn thread through the bobbin (I thought of Stagger).

We had no power today so I tied them using my headlamp. Took just over an hour.

Take your time, dc. Flies need to be in by March 15.

both sets of flies are done here...they were actually done within a few hours of signing up for this swap. After tying overly complicated bass flies for the last few months these were really a quick tying session.

Bah! Apparently there's no way to send a message to multiple users. Looks like since Eunan is the last one on the list, he's the only one the message was sent to... let me try again. This time everyone individually.

Nice, roughing it on this set. I've tied by candle light before, I don't suggest it. Hard on the eyes. I like that stonefly John, I'll be taking that one for a swim on Penns. Pm received Jeremy, thanks.

John that stone is sweet! I'm feeling guilty about my simple soft hackle.
