Terrestrials Anyone?Due Date Jan 15

Not sure what I want to tie yet
Probably some kinda of deer hair and foam beetle or a foam bastardize hopper/stimulator thing I tie.
Something along these lines but maybe minus the rubber legs

I'm so sorry, Mike West. I've been on the road all day today and have just gotten to the Forum. Caloosa Bug asked for the last spot late last night and it has to be "first come, first served." Hopefully you can join one of my swaps in the future. Have fun tying and swapping.

BB, if it goes over with the other guys I'd be for a baker's dozen. I say this because I am over whelmed by the contribution Mike has made to the Christmas swap bonus items. I no one has sent theirs in yet maybe guys could chime in and see if the extra pattern is okay with them.

I'm thinking of doing something in the bee/wasp variety. No foam...either a chenille body or deer hair, but definitely black and yellow. Kinda excited already to get to work on something. It's been a while since I was in a swap tying one pattern.

Mine are ready to go in the mail. I tied extras so I am good with more in the swap.

he can have my spot
Fly tying - The art of attaching feathers, fur, wool, and silk to a tiny hook to create artificial lures that imitate insects, a skill easily mastered by anyone who can peel a grape blindfolded with a pair of tweezers and a butter knife while wearing oven mitts.

I have a question. Is a bee/wasp considered a terrestrial?
Upon further research it seems a terrestrial is any animal that predominantly lives on land. But it looks like they are not commonly associated with terrestrial fly patterns. Of which appears to consist of ants, beetles, hoppers, crickets, cicadas, and possibly worms.
Should I chose a different pattern, than a " sort of" McGinty bee variant, to stay within the theme of the swap?
