Boss, now that all flies are claimed I'm going to compile the information and get it to Jack. Won't be able to do much before next week.

certainly no rush on getting it up...I still have the old connections to get the patterns...

Dave, Not sure if you are up to run another one of these...if not...I will try to follow in your admirable footsteps...

Let me know...I can set up a new thread for a steelhead swap...

Boss

You're welcom take it and run with it if you'd like. If you'd rather not...I have no more surgeries planned, so I can certainly do another one.

Ok the file has been sent to JackM to post. I'm on the fence for another swap, all depends on what patterns are going to be selected and the timing.

I tried tying some of those super san juans. I had to twist my chinelle to get it to furl up. They look ok at best. My chinelle must be old, it was freying as I tied them. I'll let you know how they do on Friday.


I'm out on another swap. No time for that right now. Will be waiting for the pics and recipies though.

Ryan I think it is "vernille" rather than "chenille".

I am not sure what that is. . . JayL??

I am assuming it is chenille with maybe with some stiffness. Maybe with a small wire in the center. . . Almost like a soft pipe cleaner?

That would be my guess.

Vernille is the thin stuff, chenile is the thick stuff.

FWIW, you can tie a big fat SJW with fat chenille, and it looks good, but I don't know about its fishability as I've never tried.

Here's a regular SJW from vernille, and an earthworm from the bulky chenille I bought in a fabric store:

Vernille/micro chenille. They are the same thing, and that's what I use.

I also use it in single strands for sjws and for green weenies. It also makes slumpbuster bodies and stuff like that. It's useful stuff.

Gentlemen:

Accept my apologies on the delay in posting the flies and recipes on the pages I maintain for our swaps. I have been distracted by other duties and have not set aside the time required to complete it. Though it does not take a long time to arrange the page, it is a relatively brief monotonous chore that I have not been able to set my mind to accomplishing.

I am going to make a sincere effort to update the entire set of pages and indexes in the very near future-- as soon as I finish tying the flies David earned in the PAFF Fantasy Football Pool.

Finally. Everyone or someone check all the flies. Make sure the picture and recipe are joined with the right name of tier, etc. PM me any changes. As soon as this is confirmed, I'll integrate the flies into the master index:
