Here are my two contributions to the swap.
The first is a cutwing sulphur using the foam stirrup technique to give a stable base to wrap the parachute on.

The second is a take on the woven Czech Nymph slanted toward the rockworm and grannom caddis of the Little Juniata.

As always John, nice ties.


They fasten red (crimson red) wool around a hook, and fix onto the wool two feathers which grow under a cockís wattles, and which in colour are like wax.

Hello all,

Please forgive my ignorance but how does a fly swap work? I'd like to participate if it is still open. Is there a specific theme or do the contributors tie whatever they like? Thanks.

Matt, I think all the flies are sent on this one, but I'd be glad to do another. One guy (this would be me) has flies sent to him, enough for one to two for everyone swapping, along with addresses and he mails everyone one (or two etc.) of each pattern. I'll post up another thread and see if some folks want to start a new one. Otherwise, I'll be glad to swap some with you. I can send you what I tied up (JW will post photos), or some others. I know some of your patterns, and can try to send you something different.
