Thread: OCT Swap

  1. #1

    Default OCT Swap

    Happy Oct you all. Lets do flies with autumn colors. I am making a new thread because I couldnt edit the one that was previously made. In lieu of the govt shut down are any of you furloughed, military vets or currently serving. If so let me know any extras will go to you all, if your a member of congress tie triple the number of flies (kidding). Thanks for the awesome experiences I have had in the swap, and thanks for letting me join the swap.

    Here's the roster, as near as I can figure it.

    The other "October Swap" thread needs to be removed. Confusing!

    Here's mine for this month. I made a crawfish version of a Clouser Minnow. I was going to call it the Clouser Crawfish, but there is a completely different pattern with that name already...ditto for Mud Bug, Crawdad, and other cool names, so I will call this one the Clouser Rusticus.

    Clouser Rusticus
    Hook:
    Cabelas sz 4 Wet Hook
    Thread:
    Brown 6/0 Unithread
    Weight:
    Barbell eyes
    Body:
    Bucktail, orange on bottom, rust brown on top, tied Clouser-style, with a few strands of copper Krystal Flash (note-the picture is of the prototype, before I decided to add the Flash...) .
    Legs:
    Brown and Orange rubber legs



    Granted, it's just a Clouser Minnow with rubber legs, but if you think about it, a Woolly Booger is just a Woolly Worm with a marabou tail, and look what kind of history that made.....

    BTW I can't remove the other October Swap Post, but I have sent a message to the moderators explaining the situation and asking them to remove it.

    And. welcome aboard, crickwalker. Glad you're with us. You've just joined the wildest swap in the entire Fly Tying World. You don't have to be crazy to join... but it helps......

    I'm in, I need some time to think of a pattern. I'll do Bergman's Irish Grouse.
