2014 UJ Fly Swap


LostintheUplands

Recommended Posts

I'm in.  Will be tying a local pattern for smallmouth bass called a Klawdad, invented by Chuck Kraft.

I hated this fly until I started fishing them.

Can't tie anything with materials harvested from a shot bird - still haven't gone out yet.

Just checked in and saw that I had not replied on what fly.

I'm thinking it will be a March Brown traditional wet fly.  If I get rolling I'll tie a bonefish/smallmouth fly.

contemplating tying up some ice dub attractor stones. Would you guys rather have more natural colors or wild colors. I tied up a chartreuse green stone this morning and think it will be a go to anchor fly in the early season.

I was gifted a huge amount of fly tying material from a guy on another forum. It was included in an estate sale. He offered me a chance to buy It but was down on my luck and could not purchase it. He sent it to me for free and even paid the shipping. The first thing that I see when I open it is my regal vice!

I got so many different types of chenille I could create any type of bugger out there. LOL THe thing is I don't really fish them that often. I get a few orders for them now and again.

I would have to say my favorite is olive with brown tail, or white crystal. You can not go wrong with a black bugger though. I was shocked when a person wanted size 12 buggers. Typically I tie mine in 8-6. I tried one of these little ones and was surprised at how well they work.

Ok I missed the cutoff date. I like to fight authority but authority always wins! Any room for a tardy redneck?
