I tied 23 Royal Coachmen total for the classic dry fly swap.

Here's the best twelve for the swap.

This one may be my best, even though the floss is a little fuzzy.

The fuzz is bugging me now.

Ready for shipping on Monday.

I'm sure everybody's tired of my Coachmen. I'm going back to Orvis index to do the steelhead flies next.

Not that tired yet, and looking forward to seeing one up close in a few weeks. Nice work and informative pictures

That is the best all around fly, IMHO.  Nice job.

yes- maybe a dab of Burts Bees lip balm on that unruly floss

All the rest are great, just that one got a snag in the middle of it while I was winding it. Thought I got it out. I think when you put stuff on floss it dulls the sheen. Never tried the bee balm though.

March is strong... Scott channeling some Fran Betters, Kimo channeling deep Kimo, dflan now making fish fast food,  Chug’s micro sparking up for some trouts....

Better go back to winding up my own winding projects and ice is falling away on edges of local ponds.  Time to get ready for more fun ...

SBPatt's cripple reminded me of Morrish's May Day, so I has to twist a few up. To paraphrase Flat Rock native, you all are killing it. Coachmen fit for a king Mr. Knapp.

You don't have to call me Mr., Mr. Thanks Sandan. Nice flies everyone.

 

Sorry Rick, to pick on you, but I wish I could see your flies. I bet I would like them a lot.
