Soooooooo, will the mystery tyer  please stand up and identify that fly!

That would be me.  The fly is based on Walt Johnson's Lady Coachman.  I switched out the wing and hackle.  The original calls for polar bear. I do have certified pre-1972 polar bear but it is in short supply. I use it in my personal reproductions collection.  The wing is calf tale.   The original hackle calls for pink and I substituted red.

Tossed in the extras for the swapmeister.  Heck if knew you were going to send them around I would of added enough for everybody.  I got one back too.  Mine was oddly very wet though :) .  Did it get fished and if so how did it do?

Wet? Can’t even imagine how it could have gotten wet. I WISH I could have fished it.

My only guess:
When dividing up the flys for return, I use the small tea cups out of the cupboard, one for each Tyer. Could be, one had a few drops of water left over from the dish washer? That’s all I got……….

Thanks for the extra flys.
