But I've had some problems finding time for the 2nd set so I am putting in a selection from ones on my desk. I will let Colin decide who gets what apart from the Currys Bug which is for Jockiescott.

I'm not going to argue with that Mr. W! :D

I'm struggling a wee bit myself but should get them finished tonight and posted tomorrow.

I have six done of the Botham's Fancy variants (right) and have three done of my second pattern based on the North American, Winter's hope (left).

Another couple of coats of varnish to the heads is required too.



I will confirm when they have been posted.

Sorry for delay gents, but flies posted 1st class today so should be there tmrw. Was intending on retying a couple of the guinea and yellows as heads were a bit big but didn't get time, given the standard of others' work was hoping to improve them but should still fish ok. :)

Yes the quality is very good. So long as they appeal to the fish I'm happy.

I enjoy the swaps. This swap and the spring fly swap both surprised me with the overall tendency toward smaller sizes. Its something I've picked up on with my own tying and stocking policy.
