Fly Swaps

Post by Allan »

SWAP IS FULL
Here are the parameters:

1. Every tyer tyes 11 of the same fly. It can be a wet or dry Catskill fly. That does not necessarily mean 'Catskill Style' but a fly that was originally tied for first use in Catskill waters.

2. Sign up cut off will be March 16th. Flies will be DUE IN MY HANDS by April 17th (I'll be out of state the week prior so this gives you plenty of time).

3. Toe tags (your name, pattern name and hook size) should be attached to each fly.

4. Place flies in crushproof container within an envelop and include a return envelop with postage already affixed.

5. You can post your fly of choice(identify pattern name, wet, dry, or other) or PM me and I'll post the information. If pattern is somewhat obscure, please include recipe.

We have done them before, the last one was a Catskill dry fly swap if I remember correctly.

I would be happy to join too, so someone pick a theme and lets get one started. CJ

Hey narco: Just a little bored and looking forward to the true season openner so trying to find some initiative. Besides, I haven't looked "all over the net". Just one other site. Besides, where better then to have one :?: You guys are supposed to be The Best', right? :lol:


Looking forward to seeing if there'll be enough interest in this to get this going. Hopefully there will be.

Hey, John, is this the pattern you meant?

I'm down with a swap. It's about time I do one of these things. I'm definitely the one that will benefit the most.

I'll let you know what I'll tie within a day or so.

Whoops :oops: Forgot to mention that I'll tye a Harry Darbee creation - The '2 feather fly'. Or as Al McLain called it, 'the Hatchmatcher'.

Found this information about the fly I will tye for the swap:

quote...

"About the Two Feather Fly Trout Fly
In a conversation with A J McClane, Harry Darbee said he developed this style of fly because, It all began when late Terrell Moore asked me to make him a dry pattern that weighed no more than a natural mayfly." His (Darbees') "unique method of fly tying required only a single feather for body, wings and tail." After manipulating the fibres of that feather to tie in those parts, "Darbee selects a feather for hackle and ties it in." Information from an article by A Y McClane (F&S, Oct., 1960)

Expert Tip:
This fly was meant for glass-like water

Creator of this trout fly: Harry Darbee

Country of origin for this trout fly: America - Catskill

This trout fly is designed to be fished on Rivers & Streams

Dressings

•Hook : 16
•Thread : Black or white
•Tail : Cut out body of spade hackle (true spade), breast or flank feather
•Body : Middle portion, pulled back, of same feather
•Wing : Bottom portion of same feather
•Hackle : Colour hackle of choice

For more bouyancy on swifter waters, use more turns of hackle."
