Fourth Annual Evolution Swap

Recommended Posts

So sorry I missed my deadline. I've been ill for some days and been sleeping more then being awake, that's why I didn't visit my computer for some time. My chain off evo's is broken now, so sad!

Good luck to you all, this is a terrific swap!

Sjo

 

I am sorry to hear you have not been well. Since you missed your deadline I have moved you to supernumerary position. This means you will have the opportunity to fill in for any swapper who cannot fulfill his obligations in a timely fashion. So it is still possible you can participate in your fourth Evo Swap. I also will be sad to lose you this year.

 

Get well soon, my friend.

OK- this really bugs me! Sjo is sad to miss his fourth Evo Swap. I am sad because I bumped a guy who was too ill to get his pattern in on time. I feel like a louse! Is there anything we can do to make things better? Maybe this year we could have thirteen swappers? I want to hear from the rest of you. Is there anyone too superstitious to be one of the Evo Thirteen?

I'll step back and be the alternate. Hate to see sjo miss out on 4th consecutive year due to health keeping him down a few days. My schedule has become very busy since joining this swap, haven't been giving it the amount of thought I intended.

Thanks David

 

That is a very kind offer. I am sure it will cheer Sjo up. Tell you what- I will slide you down to the alternate position and if the other swappers are happy with 13 you can jump in if you can find the time.

ok since I am up now I am making a leap here in quantum physics

my fly is called the grizzly fry

Hook:12 streamer

Tail:moose body

Body:reddish brown ice dub

underwing:White Calf

Overwing:brown hackle

Hackle:grizzly

 

 

Just want to verify, this is my evolution start point, correct?

Since we have two members who have finished their flies it may not be possible to expand our group to 13. Netabrookie may have mailed his dozen a couple of days ago and Horseshoes' are ready to go.

My flies are still laying on my desk and I don't have a problem with adding another one to the box. I hope that Sjo gets to feeling better.

I submit the following:

 

Name: Deep Fry'ed Turkey (deep as in I'll probably add some weight to it)

Hook: 10 3x long streamer/wet fly

Tail: Turkey body feather

Body: reddish brown dubbing

Underwing: white calf (or similar)

Overwing: Brown soft hackle

Hackle: Grizzly

 

I have turkey on the brain, in the last couple of years it has become my favorite hunting season, and my 10yo daughter bagged her first bird Saturday morning. I had an abundant supply of turkey feathers before the weekend, I now have a few more...

Horseshoes is having problems posting so she asked me to post the following:

Just catching up on the previous posts and my Package is not taped up yet so if you want another fly put in let me know by morning.
