The "usual suspects" hey? Count me in!! ;)

Not sure what to tie, but pretty much all the fish im getting at the moment on the dry are on Parachute Adams. Will have to get creative hey?

Thinking I will go something Klinkhammer'ish? Had some success on surface sippers with them as of late, so why the hell not.

Strange thing is they should be hitting cicadas by now.... but that sure hasn't happened down this way yet? :?

If we only get a few, I'll probably whip up a second set of something and toss in some dubbing or something for everyone as well.....

I was going to say if the names don't fill up you can put me in for a second set...
Happy to tie two flies, the second will be an emerger.

Count me in. I happy to tie some Bogon moths. Actually and obviously Aussie high country flies, BUT, they have blow across to NZ this year AND they are just larger versions of vine moths. Tied on 12 or 14s.

I''ll be over there in March/ April and I would be happy to tie a dozen nymphs to share. Assuming you guys would be good with a basic product, I have pretty basic fly tying skills.

Do they just get mailed around? Would I just be required to tie a dozen or? I have and address I can use in Omarama.

If it won't work out I am ok with that, but I would also be happy to participate.

Let me know,

Canuck

Not a lot of time on my hands at the moment, but an incentive to get back to the vice might be a good idea. It would just be some variation on my favourite nymph if I did jump in.

Did you have a deadline in mind?


All the best
