Tie any nymph you like in trout sizes with 2 requirements.
1. Must have a collar of some sort of soft hackle
2. Must incorporate at least 1 item of weight (lead or lead free wire, bead, heavy copper rib, or other)
 
I am going for nymphs with the addition of a soft hackle, not a floss body and hackle.
A larva or pupa form is ok too, any questions just ask.
I find these super effective in a lot of situations, so beef up your box.  
Please do not send flies in those little ziploc baggies, it is murder on hackles
Standard rules apply.  All are welcome, new swappers encouraged to join, international as well
 
***I don't normally ask for patterns but I think it would be helpful this time so please give at least a general idea***
 
Due date is March 10th
 
Looking for 12 members to tie 12 bugs each, plus myself
SWAP IS FULL

I just got a hen hackle for exactly this.

 

If you will have me I am in with a TBD in a #16 if that is OK (possibly beadhead Soft hackle PTN).
