I think I'll tie something colorful and fun for this swap.  

 

Something along the lines of a variation of Dale's Psychedelic Spider:

I'm sorry I didn't do this one but have a lot on my plate as is. I'm up to 18 on the skill builder swap and still don't have a dozen I'm ready to send in. Any of them in there I'd fish with but looking to try to have better matching ties before they go. I'm giving up after 6 more and just picking 12 best and quitting messing around.

 

Anyway, this swap as much as any on the board SCREAMS for pictures when they're in.  If I was doing them I think I'd picture them on a nice fedora styled fishing hat. Man that would be great.

Just an observation.  
If you don't want the safety pin to be as obvious, can you tie the fly "sideways" to the pin?  So would look more like ...

If you have a rotary vice and can turn it sideways then yes. But seeing as how the bend of the pin is similar to that of a hook, I'd imagine it's the same.

I need an addy as mine are done also. I hope they meet everyones approval I ended up tying a full featherwing streamer that I like to use for trout in my home river it is a simple tie but very effective.

There is no such thing as a blank day for a fisherman. It will be saved for him by the white-throated weasel, who watches his fishing from a hole in the wall under which is lying a fish that refused all flies; or by the excitment of identifying insects; or by the apple-bloosom in a nearby orchard; and no one would call that day a blank on which he has seen a king-fisher." -- Arthur Ransome Rod and Line, 1929

Flies are in the post, very small articulated pike flies with a hook! Should have been ready earlier, but i picked a time consuming fly & fishing kept on getting in the way of tying! But i did have fun with these flies! Thanks netabrookie!

RexW, your safety pins were waiting for me in the mailbox this evening. They look great. I will update the first page in a day or two when I can get on a computer. This so-called "smart" phone makes smoke come out my ears and my blood pressure hits about 3000 psi when I try to do anything other than type a simple post.
Thanks,
Tony
