any color combo can be done. let me know... I'll tie it in the majority rules fashion.
Do that color combo! I don't tie enough combos with white. That would be a good addition. I tie mine in purple/blue/chartreuse which is what got that king in the photo. Purple/pink has done real well too. Orange/red. All pink and all blue. But I like chasing dirty water around so my flies kinda reflect that. Love to see some whites.
some more winners
Oh, yeah! That is a nice bull!
Damn, cant believe i missed this one! Let me know if you will take on one more Sean...if not, i will look forward to the pics.
I wouldn't mind one more to the lineup Eric. If everyone is cool with tying one more pattern you can jump in no problem. What are you thinking?
If everyone is cool, I have a sweet scandi style tube fly I want to tie. Lots of arctic fox, Finn coon and temple dog.
Alright I just tied up 3 before i settled on my combo for the swap. Blue and purple tube it is. And its nasty. Eric I would gladly add you but now I've got several guys messaging me trying to get in as well and I gotta close doors before it gets outta hand. I'm sorry buddy don't take it personal. We should swap a few flies when we hit the sky this winter I wanna see that scandi tube! Sorry to the others that want in, lots of interest on this swap. Thanks guys!
No problem Sean. Looking forward to seeing everyone's creations!
