    There's a comment to be made here regarding Mcnasty, Gary, and some pheasant rump business.... But I'm just not feeling creative enough to come up with one. :D

    It doesn't help to have the name McNasty is that context, but I will be sending him the package instead of the other way around.

    Gary is slipping him the package, and McNasty is going to get busy with his rump.

    Swap is full and I believe the first back of damsels is headed my way.

    I just picked up a few more materials and I've gone through my visualization process. Mine should be done soon.

    Should be lots of nice swap flies based on the participants. Additional news: dfl gave his spot to steeli.

    High Mountain Hunting (and fishing) Supply brought a bunch of tying supplies to our Tuesday fly club meeting and was selling it at blow-out prices. I got two bags of damsel olive marabou for my flies in the swap.

    I've got everything I need, just need to get tying. I've never really tied damsels before so I had to do some searching to find something that matched my tying ability. Settled on a simple marabou pattern. Think ill get started right now actually

    Most damsel patterns are relatively easy to tie. A marabou body w/rib, a thorax, a shellback (pheasant) of some sort and mono eyes if one prefers.
