I haven't taken any photos yet. I am still waiting on 3 people to receive their ties. As far as I know I believe they have been sent just didn't get to me yet.

I tie them from size 12 to size 6 but I probably fish an 8 or 10 most.

Have you ever fished the "micro" buggers? I have heard more people talking about them using sizes 18 or so.

I think that would qualify as a generic, do-all nymph...not a bad idea but not earth shattering.

I figured you were joking but I was going to try and find a little plastic cherry to tape on yours just for fun.

I've just started concentrating on learning how to fish buggers. Once the water temp dropped below about 42 deg. on the streams I fish I seemed to get a lot of short strikes. I probably need to have a few Woolly Worms with short tails for those occasions.

For size I've settled down to two sizes, size 12 with just a tungsten bead and a size 8 with both lead wrap and a large brass bead.

I've also noticed a change in color preference (not mine, the fish) as the water temp dropped. White worked well until the low 40s when olive and dark brown kicked in. Maybe that's just me.

I'm anxious to try the Chilli Pepper version on Penns next spring. It seems a good match for the crawfish colors I see there.

I was sold a few micro buggers at backwater angler for the gunpowder. They are apparently pretty effective down there. I had no luck, but figure they might be useful.

That funny, the less I concentate while fishing buggers, the better I do!!!!

I'm definatelly in for this swap, I will be tying a bugger with a deerhair head, no color in mind so if anyone has a prefence let me know, I will tie accordally. What the group decides is fine with me, I will have the flies in by the deadline this TIME!!!!!

JH

PS... HAPPY BIRD-DAY everyone!!!

I'm new here, but if there is still room, I'd like to get in on this. At this point, I am unsure of what I'm going to tie. I'd also vote on waiting until after the holidays.
