Jburge makes number 10.  Just two spots left to get 12 new caddis flies under your Christmas tree.

This will be the Caddis version of my offerings. Holy Grail of Caddis Emergers...

And a Christmas Chironomid, otherwise known as the Red Green Chiro. Fish it, it's supposed to work particularly in lower light conditions.

professori, Thanks, I was happy with how they turned out. Eyes were a real PITA though. Understand about changing patterns, happened to me on the small streamer swap.

Well I hope you had to change because someone tied up Thunder Creek minnows before you got around to it!  LOL

I stopped listing patterns on swaps I host.  No two tiers tie a pattern the exact same way.  I find it interesting to see the differences.

I am adding anot her fly, so I am sending a 16 HE and partridge and an October Caddis on a small Steelhead hook. Not totally happy with the soft hackle being enough.
