I would post a pic, but any pic from my phone comes up as too big of a file. Anyone else have that problem? Well anywho, I tied a really toned down version of a Senyo Stray Dog in yellow/black. Kind of like the one below, but with a black collar and a little less flash. Enjoy.
Six is a magical number. Right when you get sick of tying the same damn fly you’re almost done. I think this year I’m only going to fish these and try to get one on everyone’s.


That’s if I don’t throw one or two into a tree

do you guys want your treble hook barbs crimped?

how much blue estaz wrapped around a treble hook is too much?

BTW, spent the weekend floating with another swap member who forgot he was in this swap. Of course we are still catching summer fish on dry lines so it can be excused.

I’m not familiar with the GL run but going by GSs posts it’s year round!

Yard you don’t need to tie a dry line bug unless you really want to. We should do a dry line bug swap, but I was thinking more of the big uglies for this one for high, cold run off water.

And PBR, id prefer minimal estaz for more stealth but just enough so it still passes for a fly in our fly only waters

I will have mine out this Friday, maybe tomorrow.

Sending a tube fly and a low water-ish tied on a hook. For the freebie, I am going to eat rancid pork tamales and throw up in a hermetically sealable biowaste bag. You can give it all to one person, or portion it out accordingly.

It's a holiday season tradition

Fuck you all

If you could swap out the blue estaz for a sparse wad of pink yarn it would be appreciated.

heh. sparse wad.
