Default 2016 - Winter Nymph Swap

7 people are interested in the nymph swap. Please plan on having your flies completed and sent in to me no later then Friday, March 18, 2016 (~6 weeks to complete flies).

RULES - Each tier will tie 21 nymphs (the pattern is your choice as long as it is a nymph bug, please call out what you are tying so there are fewer duplicates). NO San Juan worms, relation to, resemblance of. Same with egg patterns, midges or worst of all store bought and passed off as your own (Trust us, we will know). Upon completion, put paper or foam toe tags on each fly to identify the fly name and/or tier. Then send the flies in a "padded" envelope to me with a couple dollars to help cover return postage or include a self addressed "padded" envelope with postage already included or a couple of dollars to cover the postage. Once I have everyone's flies, I will distribute three flies from each tier to all the participants so in the end you will receive 21 flies back (three from each of the other tiers, plus three of yours). I hope that makes sense. Normally, tiers will send their flies in a small container like an Altoid tin box or something similar to protect the flies. Also, please post up a recipe of your nymph fly pattern when you have completed the swap, I will use that to start another post with all the recipes/photos, thanks!

Tyers:
1. SlabSeeker - #16 or #18 Caddistrophic Pupae
2. EastCoastAngler - #16 Barr's Emerger / Sparkle Braid Pupae
3. bugz - #18 or #20 Snowshoe Hare Emegers
4. Pilotfly - #12 or 14 Pupatator - Flies received.
5. Fcollinscatcher - #16 Tung Teasers - Flies received.
6. BigRedFan - BH Cased Caddis - Flies received.
7. COCarp - #16 Micro Pheasant Tail

Thank you for hosting Cocarp!! I was thinking probably a bead head cased caddis with the upcoming hatch around the corner.

Ok...I've changed my mind seeing as how we have three caddis nymph type patterns.
I will now tie a yellow sally nymph or maybe a wet. You'll have to wait and find out. Boohoohohahahaha.
I won't change my mind again..I promise

I'm thinking a tung teaser, size 18. Tied on a longer shank hook (200 R I think?) So it's more of a size 16.

My bad, originally I got mixed up and called it a poison tung (midge pattern).
