Thanks Johnno.
I'd like to know how they go on different waters. As I've caught numerous trout on them.
If you want information on materials and tying instructions, I am happy to share.

fraser hocks wrote:Bakers dozen of the same fly is the normal amount Johnny. All flys are sent to the swap organizer who then sends you back a dozen flys (one from each tier) so you get a nice selection of everyone else's tying. A fairly common practice on most flyfishing forums, well it is on this side of the globe?

I usually tie up a couple of experimental flys or some of my "go to" flys as well, and send those to the swap organizer as a thank you for organising the event, but don't feel like you have to do that.

Have a read of this viewtopic.php?f=12&t=53

Thanks for that :)

Took one of Paul's Cicadas for a swim on the last day of September in a wee spot I know down south. One cast. One fish. Sweet! Mind you had three take a mouse as well so they weren't that fussy.....
