Swap Shenanigans

It is unlikely that I will make individual posts every-time I get a fly-swap shipment in the mail.  The novelty does wear off after a while.  At least I think it would as a reader.  This one bears some special attention however because I recently received Gregg Martin's flies.

Now, you may be wondering how you get a little extra special attention from the swap-master.  A little TLC on the pictures of your flies, or perhaps you have your eye on a certain fly that just must be in your package.

Well, take a lesson from Gregg my friends because not only did he send in a full shipment of eggs for the swap:


He also sent a shipment of flies for the swap-master to "test".  Take note people, "test" is code for "make sure my random selection of flies rocks".  I expect to be doing allot of extra "testing".


I am kidding of course, Gregg asked if I wanted to try these out on the South Platte a while back.  Pretty sure they will work just fine, particularly this yellow one for some reason.

  1. What did he use for the heads? Looks like a cure goo type thing.

    1. Gregg awnsered below. I suspect he will be headed down the UV glue eventually. He has been asking around.

  2. Kevin,

    Epoxy colored as it cures with cheap nail polish. It's cool but I have come up with some bizzare colors! Thanks McTage, glad you got the flies and hope the Bitter Buggers work on the DSP.

    1. Oh, they will work. I am feeling them for medium depth flats with moderate current.

  4. The rust colored one looks like it needs to be tested in SE Michigan.
