I'll have to get to the post office tomorrow to see if mine are there. I did my best to get a step by step up on my site, but the file is huge and all it is is some pics. I made it in Windows Movie Maker and can not understand why it is so huge.

If you guys go to my web site and follow the link to the pattern page the movie there is not my bugger. However, give it a look, I think you will find it interesting.

Thanks again to Dean for all his work for the swap.

That was in a swirling back eddie on the lower Yellowstone last fall. I had a client that could not cast, at all, but wanted to fish dries. I knew the bwo hatch was coming so I pulled into that eddie to re-rig.

The hatch just began right before our eyes. Those fish are all (as far as what we caught) 12 to 18 inch bows. My buddy from Pa was out, and I took him and another friend there the next day. Needless to say, the hatch came off again and they were so excited that they couldn't even tie a fly on for a few minutes.

Out of curiosity, are we going to post the pictures and instructions on the fly swap page again? There seem to be a lot of similar patterns this time and I think it would be helpful if it's not going to put anyone out. Which reminds me, I've got to put together some instructions for everyone.

My instructions come on the back of a whiting bugger pack.

It really is the best hackle for buggers that I've ever used, so I must recommend you use it to get the buggy look that my flies get (at least I think they look pretty buggy).

Here's how they say to tie em.

Tie in a length of copper wire, chenille, and marabou at the bend of the hook.

Wrap the thread to the eye

Wrap the body with chenille, and tie off at the eye.

tie in a hackle (at the eye) by the stem, or at the fat end (if you had to trim the fatter area off) and palmer back to the bend.

Tie the tip of the hackle feather off with the wire.

Wrap the wire forward in the opposite direction of the hackle winding.

Tie the wire off at the eye of the hook.

half hitch/whip.

Thanks to DJ for hosting and to all the folks that tied them up. They look great. I was looking at them last night and thought all the variations were cool. I never every buy buggers or even look at them in the fly shop. I saw some colors and color combos that i never tie up. Thanks for the flies and the ideas.

I am headed up to camp this weekend to do some sledding and just might sneak out early and try a few out.

All:

I am always willing to host the swap pictures and recipes along with all the others. What I need is JPEG or GIF images, no larger than about 400 pixels in width. Each image should be identified so I can pair it with the recipe/instructions and tier's name.

The recipes and/or instructions should be typed simply with no formatting and sent electronically (e-mail) so I can cut and paste to create the page. I also like to have the tier specify how his or her name should read: i.e., "Happyhackle" or "John Doe" or "Happyhackle (John Doe)" etc.

When someone gets this together, send me a PM and I'll tell you what e-mail address to send everything to.

I got a postage due!! LOL I put the $0.31 on the mail slip. I guess I'll see them Monday.

I put two stamps on my return envelope, but I guess some were heavier than my buggers.

Fly swaps are wonderful.

Spring is just around the corner.

I'm new to tying. How does a swap work? Everyone ties their own flies, sends them to DJ or Jack and they take a picture to post the recipe online? Are the flies redistributed? Sounds interesting, just need to know how this works.


Thanks

jpb,

you tie a fly for everyone involved in the swap, the swap master gets them, and sends one of each pattern to all of the participants. I got one bugger from everyone that tied.
