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.
got a rumpalicious package today. will start tying in a day or two when hooks from allen arrive.
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 am doing an extended body damsel. Pattern has been determined. Need to get tying.
I'm going with a sparrow-variation or an olive ostrich herl pattern.
Tying frenzy before the 4th...should have mine in around end of June.
Looking forward to seeing everyones!
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.
hows everyone doin? i got 3 left i'm finishing up this afternoon if you wanna go ahead and send me an address.
I hate to say it but I haven't tied the first one yet. Ive got some neighborhood issues going on.
I need 12 flies per tyer for the swap.
Yeah despite all my bluster I've been fishing for six days, just back Sunday, took care of my yard and my gear, and got absorbed with a boat wood work project. Guess I better batch em out, eh?
its all good, just wonderin where everyone was at. i kind of forgot for a bit.
I'll have mine out soon.
Busy during the upcoming few weeks so just finished tying up the bugs.
My swimming armada getting ready to fly.
