not just a swap, a royal MF of a swap.

I thought about doign this over the summer, but never bothered. Since I was reminded that my posts were too long to read, I noticed again.

Who's up for a royal fly swap? Small, ten people, ten flies. All based off the Royal Coachman, because there's so many variations...although I wouldn't even care if people offered their own version of the same fly.

I mean, I do enjoy the Royal Wulff, although I tie a much less hackled version than most. Then, I know that Lee Wulff favoured a single, non-split wing. There's the Royal Trude, the Royal Humpy, the Royal Coachman wet, the RC dry, the RC streamer, and no doubt countless other variations of a theme.

I thought about this whole idea again, as I whipped up another Royal Coachman streamer, using arctic fox in lieu of bucktail, a material that looks even better than marabou and has more life than antron wings (done that, too).

So, is anyone interested in this? Make 'em as modern or as classic as you want (if someone ties on an eyeless hook with a gut snell, you're my new hero).

(other swaps only goto 10...)

One fly per person required, extra flies for moderating staff is encouraged, but not neccessary. If Frederick joins, you don't have to make any for him, they'll just get lost in the mail anyways.

I'm all about nostalgia of late I'm in. Size 10 or 12 fly do you prefer? I'll name my pattern shortly. It'll be a classic.

Whatever you want, the suggestion is its something you'd actually fish. :)

Maybe I'll create an Al's Rat Wulff since you wouldn't be caught dead fishing an Al's Rat.

Really? I'll have to go back in time to tell myself that. Also, Al's Rat is perfectly acceptable if you grease the line so it sits up top. :)

I might have to try that tonight, actually. Itty bitty ones. A piece of hair and a turn of herl. Its a mission!

Shame, I just sat down and made a special 5/0 stainless one in case you joined so you could have one for PA and one for NJ.

Shakey (swoon), if you use 'em in 8, tie 'em in 8.

Wsender: Whatever you want, really. Its a pretty much and open qurstion.. The Royal Wulff was just a hairwing Royal Coachman, after all, and its the greatest fly, ever.

What's sick is that I was gifted a bag of golden pheasant tips, and I have absolutely no use for it. I do not enjoy tying or fishing royal anything, but will jump in you guys have trouble filling it up.

Then again, the only fly I used in yellowstone NP was a royal wulff. If anyone wants one baptized this summer, send it my way. Will take pics of any fish that it fools.

My avatar just gave me some ideas for the golden pheasant.
