Was tieing flys for three different exchanges at one time and I've gone 'flat brained' on what I sent to you. A "occupational hazard" if you don't 'procrastinate' in getting the goodies out in the mail.

Very Very Very Cool!!

Small thing: don't forget the bit of hook tubing with the Waddington shanks.


Looking at the flys .... this is well worth the wait; flys there I've only read about. Can assure one and all they well get a Rogue Work Out!

Fly Swap Meister Audit Results & Status

I inventoried all flies last night and am preparing them for mailing.

The following flys I have no tying instructions for:

Fred Evans - Rogue Unnamed
Steelheader 69 - Unnamed
Nbrandon - Thunder & Lightning

I will mail them with out the instructions but follow with them by posting on the board or probably a direct email to every one. PM me your email address when you have a chance. I have some of them but not all.

I have decided to send the three United Kingdom participants flys out first in the mail which WILL OCCUR on Saturday morning. These are Ashley, Gardener, and Willie Gunn. Need to make sure they arrive by the time of their early salmon season opener of Feb 10th especially Willie Gunns, I can only imagine the comments I will receive if they do not arrive by then.

You know how sensitive I am about those comments.

The US participants will go out early next week so all should arrive to you no later than Thursday or Friday of next week.

Thats it for now.

Here goes...

I'm gonna try to remember what i did... here goes

Thunder & Lightning

Materials:
Hook: size 4 salmon/steelhead
Tag: Oval silver tinsel and yellow silk floss
Tail: Tip of orange chinese rooster hackle
Butt: Peacock herl
Body: Black floss
Rib: Oval gold tinsel
Hackle: Orange chinese rooster hackle at second rib
Throat: Blue guinea
Wing: Moose body hair

Tying Instructions:
1. Lay down a layer of thread all the way back to directly above the barb of the hook.
2. Tie in the silver tinsel, make 2 turns around the hook moving forward, and tie it off.
3. Tie in the yellow silk directly after tinsel. Begin wrapping up the hook and stop directly over the point of the hook. Tie it off and trim.
4. Snip off a little of the rooster hackle tip, and tie it in directly over the point of the hook. Put the rest of the hackle away for later. The tail should stop just short of being directly over the bend in the hook. You can put golden pheasent crest in too if you want to be fancy.
5. Tie in a peacock herl, and a strip of gold tinsel at the same time. The peacock should be dangling off the back of the hook, and the tinsel should be draped over the hook towards the eye. Make a few wraps of peacock herl, until you're happy and then tie it off and trim.
6. Pull the gold tinsel out of the way and then start making nice wraps towards the center of the hook.
7. Tie in the hackle that you clipped the tip off for use in the tail. You're going to want it to fall about where you think the second wrap of gold tinsel will be. A wrap or two back from the middle is usally right on.
8. Continue wrapping the black thread forward until you get close to the head. Leave more room for the head than you would with featherwing.
9. Wrap the gold tinsel forward, careful to pick out any orange hackle fibers that might get caught. Tie it off and trim when you meet up with your bobbin.
10. Fold the orange hackle back and start palmering around the hook, more or less following your tinsel. When you get close to the head, I like to add a few extra turns for more body. Force the fibers to lay back and not get caught under each other. Tie off and trim.
11. Hold the blue guinea feather at the tip and stroke downwards to seperate the fibers. Lay it on the hook, tie it in and trim the tip. Make a few wraps directly in front of the orange hackle, pulling each wrap back so it doesn't get funky (technical term). After you're satisfied, tie it off and trim.
12. Lay down a few turns of thread between the hackle and the eye, covering up any hackle butts or other sins.
13. Grab a chunk of moose hair, cut it out, stack it, and then pick out the just fibers. [Note: Some of these flies were tied between sessions of tying elk hair caddis, so if some look like Don King, I appologize] The tip of the moose should align with the tip of the tail. Tie it in, trim it away from the eye, build a nice head on the fly.
14. Whip finish, & coat w/ cement if you want.

Neil

No problem. What do you think about making this a yearly event? I'll volunteer to host next years.

Neil,

Thats fine but I am thinking of doing a steelhead and salmon nymph swap now that this one is over.

Perhaps you would like to be the Fly Swap Meister for that one one ?

Let me know
