Fifth Annual Evolution Swap

Recommended Posts

So, help me visualize what a purple biot wing might be?

 

I think of biots wings as in Prince nymphs. Same thing, but purple?

HOOK: #10

THREAD: black 8/0

TAIL: grizzly cock

BODY: muskrat

RIB: blue Krystal Flash

WING: purple biot

HACKLE: grizzly cock

HEAD: red thread

 

Did change the hackle (reasonable substitute?). And the tail... Think this bugger need to emmerge to the surface world.

 

Hope it's ok, else let me know. Got other ideas too.

 

For name, how about "Crowning the King"...

A witty and appropriate name, professori!

 

And Henrick is quick off the mark. I agree that grizzly cock can be considered a reasonable substitute- especially if our beast is changing its environment.

It's time to walk, or hop as it may be.

 

Checkmate:

 

HOOK: #6

THREAD: White 140

TAIL: grizzly marabou

BODY: white craft foam

RIB: chartreuse Flashabou

Legs: grizzly silly

Collar: grizzly cock

HEAD: white craft foam

 

Let me know if this jumped too far up the evolutionary chain. I'll go back a step or two on the ladder but it seems like a logical conclusion.

Evolution proceeds by single (usually) small changes. If you look back over the patterns offered by your fellow swappers you will see that each differs from the pattern before it by at most one major changes. (An additional change of hook size by one size is also permitted.) Your submission (which looks like a excellent fly) contains 6 changes. In fact, all you retained of your parent pattern was the collar. Please review the directions in my first post and resubmit your contribution.

Ok, the purple biots seems kind of tricky to find for me in the shops I normally frequent.

Can anyone help, or will pink be ok?

 

Else I will need to find some whites and then use a permanent felt marker....

Henrick- The marker sounds like a quick and easy solution. I bet you would get good results using a purple marker on your pink biots.

Henrik- I was hoping to have this swap wrapped up by July 1. But YGDWYGD (Ya gotta do what ya gotta do.) I can't start my work here until I have all your flies.

Sounds like the first flies are on their way. (Thanks for the quick work, Sharon!) Remember everyone: You DO NOT need to toe tag your flies and you will not get your original container back. (So make it cheap and disposable.)
