Help wanted- Need salt/fresh crossover patterns

23 February 2017 - 07:34 PM

We are still hoping to fill the Butte Ugly Swap, there are 5 spots open, after a strong pre-registration. Lots of wonderful swaps underway.

Please check the registration thread in this forum. There are several unique features to this swap and we have some notoriously great tiers committed to provide fishable and collectible patterns. Please consider joining up soon. We may close this swap on March 1 and current members will get to keep even more of the "Wild Cards" from some famous tiers that have committed their support.

All folks will receive a really nice collection, we are just willing to share with a few more. Jump now, this is one has a ticking clock.

There is no need to disclose the planned pattern until submittal, YOUR OPTION
Summary of Rules
1.  The usual rules on tagging submittals and pre-paid postage for returns will apply, INTERNATIONAL SWAPPERS will be welcome based on postal costs and arrangements;
2.  2 wild cards flies should be submitted which will be sent to another swapper as designated by the flytyer or by default in discretion of swap hosts; and
3.  Your fly must be Butte Ugly and certified to catch fish, in either the swapper's experience or because it incorporates known elements that are historically successful.  While not soliciting poorly tied exemplars, Butte Ugly flies include, without limitation, those with copper, orange, pink, and anything that those from Montana would deem Butte Ugly.  Other examples will be provided if necessary, but if it has skewed or non-traditional appearance, it should work fine. 
Rules update:  Okay, any fly that any person from any state that has buttes in the topography will qualify.  What the heck ...any fly that will catch fish should be allowed, (this is really a Favorites Swap,) so join in the fun.

There has been a request for a beauty contest conducted by photos (ie, mug shots) of the swappers and/or a best insult contest directed at the flies submitted, and voted by a plurality of FTF members when all swappers have sent off their creations.

Needing Fly Pattern with Cornhusker connection

16 February 2017 - 03:22 PM

Further to my participation in the Down Home Pride Swap, I need to identify a fly that was developed or originated in Nebraska or was originated, developed or popularized by a native Nebraskan.

My fairly extensive online searches provided a dearth of results, other than some of my own, in the FTF database- unlikely to be popularized ☹️.

Kudu is also interested with any having roots in Kentucky..

ANY help would be greatly appreciated and will result in a copy in connection with the swamp to those replying.
