Classic Bucktail swap

Recommended Posts

Anyone up for some quick, easy classic bucktails? Always loved the look of these flies but haven’t fished them much. Looking for 12 participants, due date of September 1st, just in time for the start of fall fishing. Standard swap rules apply: SASE, toe tags, yadda yadda. Don’t get hung up on “classic” patterns...get creative if you’d like.

Long-shank streamer-type stuff. Not necessarily long-shank but tied in the style of flies like the black ghost, Mickey Finn, Edson tigers, etc. 

 

Thanks for joining, all! Two spots left

OK, pending dflanagan's clarification of 'Classic Bucktail', I'll tie a Kelly Bill (squirrel tail wing).
