Buckeyetrouter, I will definitely post picts of the flies.
Most of the smallie flies I use are something I created using attributes from other successful patterns. For instance, a John Barr pattern called the "meat whistle", I bend my own hooks to about 60 deg. and use barred zonker strips and palmer the body using rabbit. I like to use lots more weight and plenty of rubber legs. Kind of a jig-n-pig type of pattern.



I do tie clousers and use some store bought patterns everyonce in a while. There are some good books available with lots of good patterns in them.

I look forward to trying out the patterns from this swap on more of these gals!

Troutman-
Count me in for an Olive Strymph. It looks and sounds like a good pattern that will give me a good challenge to tie.
I can't wait to try some of these other flies.
Thanks,
Ben

Two more weeks to go on the streamer tie. When you have them ready, send me an email. gltroutman at gmail.com
Flying Trout, what did you decide to tie? I will post it on the list.

I do not know the official name of it and I have my own variation. The best I can describe it is a rabbit strip streamer.

I was a little worried that you might not find them. We were leaving to go out of town and I hurried down on Friday morning to find your door locked.
It was nice to know that the pharmacy is open to your office, and I slipped them over there. Let me know when they are all in and I will stop by and pick mine up.

Thanks again for being the flymeister!

-Ben

Yep, Its a wonder I can find anything on the desk with all this paperwork in the way! I took the day off and took the family camping down at Indian Boundary for the weekend.
