They are on the way.
Put me down for a Dk. Brown Hare's Ear Nymph.
We have had a swapper drop out of our little club, and a spot is open for a new member. Please see the original post "SOTM 2014" for details. This is a great chance to get in on some of the most fun...
We have one swapper that is MIA. As far as I know, no one has heard anything. I am going to send out what I have, which means the swaps will be one short for Jan, Feb and March.
I will make an...
I fear that Fontinalis is MIA. I will mail what I have out first thing Monday. I think we've waited plenty long enough. I sincerely hope all is well.
I do tie them in different colors.
Here is the Shad version:
I will be filming a tutorial on this fly in a few...
I don't have a problem with a molded bead, or leadheads or anything. I fish with all of them. It's just a matter of definitions.
I'll even share one of my dirty little secrets.....I sometimes put...
If the lead is molded onto the hook, it's a jig. If it's tied on, it's a fly, if you fish it on a fly rod. If you cast it on a spinning rod, it's spin fishing with a fly, just like using a fly with a...
Nice crawfish, but it's not a fly. It's a jig.
I tie jigs, too, as well as make my own fishing lures.
I'll try to submit it it as soon as I can get some time to do the tutorial. It would be cool if FAOL could post videos of patterns. That would be easier (for me, anyway...).
The weight at the rear is because crawfish swim backwards, so you want the jigging motion to be at the rear, rather than the front of the fly. Crawfish land tail-first when they swim.
I have posted it on a few threads. but I don't think I have ever submitted it for a Fly Of The Week, yet.
I dunno. I usually use eyelash yarn. Or sometimes a dubbing brush. I try to save my feathers for streamers.
If you want something more realistic, here is a pattern I came up with a few years ago. I use Swiss Straw for the carapice.
This works for me.
Put me down for a San Juan Bow Worm.
I sent a PM to the last tier, but I haven't heard anything back. I'll wait a few more days, and if I don't hear anything, I'll go with what we've got.
After much research, I have decided on a Black Buzzer Variant. I'll get them tied up tonight and in the mail by morning.
Last set has not arrived. I have PM'd and am waiting for a response.
One set left to go. As soon as it gets here, I'll mail them all back out.
I am still with you all. I am just pondering possible patterns. I haven't made up my mind, yet. I will announce the pattern forthwith.
I need to re-check. I may have forgotten to log in a set of flies. If I did, then they are all here, and I will sort and re-mail them ASAP.
It's hard to beat a Woolly Bugger for just about anything.
To tell the truth, a Woolly Bugger tied in brown and orange makes a fine crawfish imitation. You can tie it with a barbell weight on the back end, and tie it hook-up to fish it right on the bottom.
We are waiting on two sets to arrive, then I can mail everything out.
