Where are we mailing them once we are finished?

experimenting with dubbing tonight for the first time. slowly learning to build the body. have a few gill jigs/flys tied up should be buggy enough to work.

JJ1, you're mailing them to me. I will PM you my address when you're ready for it. What about something like a Clouser minnow? Bucktail, flash, and either some bead chain for smaller ones or dumbell eyes for bigger ones. I'm VERY jealous you can just "run over" to Feather Craft! Those guys should be able to point you in the direction of a warmwater fly that would work for you.

moswampy, I have found a dubbing loop works better than simple dubbing. It's easier to apply and is way more durable. It might be worth looking into!

Hey Quivira Kid! How is the fly swap coming? I have mine done. Where do I send them?

If it's not too late, I'd like to join. Pattern, not sure yet. Thanks for hosting.

Heather, I'll send you my info.

I think we're gonna keep this one with the 6 I have on the list in the first post unless someone backs out. Reason being is a couple folks have already tied their flies and have them ready to go. I will host another if there's continued interest! WELCOME to JigCraft!

If you are on the list and are good to go for the swap, let me know! Haven't heard from a couple of you fellas, and I'm starting to get nervous.

I think I'm gonna tie up some "Crappie Candy" flies, if nobody else sends in something similar! I've got a few other tricks up my sleeve to add variety if somebody's gonna tie something like that, though.

I worked on mine today... took me 3 test flies before i got it how i wanted it. Big Grin I am sticking with my #10 mini matukas in black & orange. Proving a b!tch to tie so glad i don't have to do 2 dozen!!!! haha. Almost switched my choice after a fun day yesterday with alot of dink LMB using a mini (#10) craftfur clouser. Got a few gills too. Smile

I NEED to get them done by next week, gona have my hands full for awhile after that i think. Time for t-ball and i am coaching (tending the dandylion harversters) this year. Should be fun. Smile Some auctions going to start here next week also.

You want pics or wait? : Co-Founder

Sounds good! I can't wait to see those mini Matukas. You can post pics if you'd like, or I can take pictures when they get here... Either way is great with me!

I dropped mine off in the mail yesterday so you should see them in a day or two.
