    I will be tying a Dahlberg diver. I am with Chris on letting it go through the weekend and/or cutting it off at 10. Looking forward to seeing what patterns will come from this swap.

    Nice Dahlberg. Yellow is one of my favorite colors for bass also.

    Mine will be in the mail just as soon as I can find a bigger mailer box than the Altoid tin I have been using. Guess I have not done very many bass swaps.

    Recipe:

    Hook: 3x strong 2x long 1/0 hook
    Thread: 3/0 or 6/0 yellow ( I used 6/0)
    Tails: 4 yellow saddle hackles tied 2 on each side of hook
    Body tie in order: yellow bucktail, 4 strands of red crystal flash, orange bucktail, orange schlappen, 3 strands of orange/pearl flashabou, green bucktail.

    Finish head with about 3 coats of hard head Loon Outdoors cement or 5 minute epoxy and create a clear bubble to the top of thread wraps. Make sure the cement or epoxy soaks into a bit of the green bucktail when coating.

    Optional: add lead eyes for a different action on the retrieve.
