All of the flies are boxed and ready to go. I will get them out tomorrow. Thanks everyone for another great swap. I'm asking everyone to post the recipe for your flies. I for one want to copy each one so I don't loose the original and have nothing.

A Pitt fan, a Marshall fan, and a WVU fan are climbing a mountain and arguing about who loves their team most. The Marshall fan insists that he is most loyal and then yells,"This is for Marshall!" and jumps off the mountain. Not to be out done,The WVU fan next professes his love for his team. He screams,"This is for the Mountaineers!" and pushes the Pitt fan off the mountain.

Vladi's Polish Nymph (Josef)
https://umpqua.com/p...is-polish-nymph
 
I haven't seen a material list for this particular rendition by Vladi, but there's no magic to the materials. Use a heavy czech hook size 8-12, a tungsten bead to match color scheme, build a smooth base for the body with thread and/or extra weight for a caddis type shape, rib to match body, and shuttle weave a body with two contrasting or otherwise compelling colors of DMC floss. Dub a collar to match backside of weave. I added a hot spot, but Vladi's don't have hot spots. I also used a darker thorax than Vladi seems to be using.
 
The real secret to this is the weave. Here are the videos I relied on:

http://flytying123.c...sh-woven-nymph/
https://m.youtube.co...h?v=7059YkpEwuc
http://www.charliesf...cfm?parentID=91 
 
I also found it extremely helpful to wet the floss before weaving.
 
Here are the materials I used:
 
Hook: Fulling Mill 35060 Czech Barbless #12 (Note: some brands won't accommodate a bead; this one does)
Bead: Competitive Angler countersunk tungsten gold 4.00 mm
Weight: Golf tape, cut into ~1/8" strips
Thread:  UTI 70 Hopper Yellow
Rib: Small copper wire
Body: DMC Floss - dark brown (#3371) and light orange (#?)
Collar; SLF Dark Brown (Vladi uses something lighter, maybe hare's ear)
Hot Spot: Uni Fire Orange 6/0
