Those look nice Gents!
For the Darrel White minnow meets John Rohmer Punk. John likes to use a small salt water hook if I remember Gamakatsu or Daiichi, Darrel uses standard streamer hooks. I have seen Darrel use a palmer of grizzly or brown hackle on the body woolly worm style as well, I save the hackle and tease the dub out.
These fish very neutral, they do not sink real fast at all, and will suspend after a hard strip, if you want to sink them you’ll need a sink tip or sinking line of some sort, or put some wraps of lead on. I fish them for trout, bass, and in white I have had carp eat them.
Hope you all enjoy them
Hook; sz 8 2xh/3xl of your choice.
Tail; and body AZ Simi seal in amber olive (Mega or Magnum length)
Wing; Az Simi seal in peacock (Mega or Magnum length)
Head; deer hair stacked and combed.
eyes, tiers choice.January 5, 2013 at 12:04 am #33426
I have been contacted by most of the swap participants. There are two that I have not heard from in quite some time. Three others have flies in the mail at this time. If I do not hear from the final two tiers by Monday, they will be out of the swap. I will not make you wait for your new flies because someone can not meet a deadline.
For the two I have not heard from, send me an update. I would hate to remove you from the swap.

Wow Fin! Now I know why you wanted the tubing. That is a great effect and I’ll have to learn how you do it.January 6, 2013 at 2:34 am #33442Gene Roberts wrote:

My photo(s) does not do justice to any of these flies. You will be very pleased with what you see when you open your packages from the mail. The flies look much better in person.

Mine are in the mail. You should have received them by now. I will track them when I get home. Mine are nothing special compared to some of those ties, but they sure do catch fish. Hope everybody likes them.January 8, 2013 at 4:08 pm #33511
I received flies from Bighand and SPNYFISH today. Thank you for getting them in on time. I am waiting for flies from Mook(should arrive any time) and ArmyBrat (should have shipped out today). I will get your packages in the mail as soon as the last two packages arrive or 1/14, which ever comes first.
I will post pictures of the flies I received today in the morning.

They all look very nice…
FYI Bighand won’t share his flies…. So I have to join the same swaps as him to get any of his ties! LOL
