    I see a bunch of nice damselfly nymphs in the flytying thread. Who's up for a damselfly nymph swap. Limited to 12 tyers.

    Tie 12 flies (and get one of yours back) and follow the standard swap rules; i.e., toe tagging, stamped return mailing envelopes and submit by the due date. Unless the swap gets dragged out flies are due tentatively 7/15.

  2. I'm with you in spirit, but I just won't have the time to do the tying in the next couple of months. I look forward to seeing the pictures and recipes at the end, though.

    I'd love to get in on this but it just occurred to me that I've never tied a damsel pattern in my life so I don't know what I would tie

    Some black (or Red) bead chain eyes some green marabou on a #10 streamer hook and a little imagination and you are golden.

    I had to google olive willy. Basically a leech with a soft hackle collar?
