I've decided on a generic olive and brown beadhead soft hackle.

I began to realize while I was going through storage and unpacking my fly tying equipment, I'm missing a whole bag of feathers. It's entirely possible that they were thrown away when we moved. I couldn't find any Hungarian partridge, so I substituted some wood duck flank.

Okay! The swap is closed and we have 10 participants. So you need to send at least nine flies to me by the deadline. One thing I forgot to mention and I will edit my first post. Please toe tag each fly with a little slip of paper with your user name and the name of the pattern. Ok, start twistin the fur and feathers.

This is my first attempt at fly tying, created from feathers from my own birds! That makes it special to me. I used peacocks sword feathers for the tail, peacock hurl for the body, peacock biots for the wings, and rooster hackle. I'm tying these on a size 10 because size 14 is really hard for a beginner. I started saving feathers for flies over a year ago but only recently started learning what feathers are actually used in tying flies. I combined some ideas from the Prince and Zug Bug so I'll call this variation a "Boots Bug"

Yep, those look fine! There's a certain satisfaction that comes from catching fish on flies that you tied yourself. And for me, the satisfaction only increases when you used materials that you collected yourself. There's just something inherently "green" about that.

Received sasmojoe's flies today. I will start a swap pic thread later and add pics as I get the flies.

I noticed most folks are tying itty bitty dandruff flake nymphs, so I decided to go the other direction and tie some meaty mini-girdle bugs.

They come with a disclaimer: Use of girdle bugs may cause you to hook into a large, angry brown trout that may do unpleasant things to your tippet, rod tip, and/or self-esteem.

TBB and others your flies look so good.

This is why this beginner did not enter although I watch this thread daily.

I might be good enough to enter next time.

my bead head pheasant tail is getting consistent and the hare's ear nymph is coming along

gobbleinwoods, you better next go round! The thread swap is just for fun. We pass no judgement, and I pray no judgement is passed on mine. My flies look like something you picked off a MOS's covered rock. They aren't pretty. None of them are. All flies catch fish no matter what they look like. Even my poor attempts at tying will catch a fish now and again. The fly swaps are just for fun, to see what we can get on other's flies, and to most importantly practice our own tying by allowing us to tie in bulk. I sincerely hope you are entered in the next swap. It really is a lot of fun and a good opportunity for us to grow and learn!!

What he said. As a matter of fact, I have found over the years that usually the messy-er and sloppy-er a fly looks, the more fish will hit it. I don't take too many pains tying for myself any more because of that very thing.


I got my batch of "trash flies" finished up this afternoon, I'll get them in the mail in the next few days.

Maybe the first lesson I learned when I started tying, was that ugly flies catch fish.

Headed to the streams next weekend to find out if this is true. (Unless miggy's clown map comes to pass)

After all the rain this weekend, you can pretty much fish anywhere at random here now.
