    I was going to ask you to photo how you have your photo bench set up?

    The photos you took of those flies are outstanding.

    I was thinking natural light bulbs... etc...

    They are very good photos.

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    I have a pretty good "house camera" ie. my wife won't let me take it fishing. It's a Sony DSC-H7. What I know about digital photography would fit in a coffee cup but I manage to take enough bad photos to get a few good ones.

    These are some of my best photos taken outside with the side of our "ghetto" pool as a background.

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    Wish I could snap shots that good Chris.. looking forward to receiving the swap flys. The fly I tied is basically an anchor fly a variant of the big turd. I call it the cowpens because that is what the text below the anchor tattoo on my great uncles arm reads USS Cowpens.

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    I just received my Flies!

    Now DH took some outstanding photos, but they are even more impressive when holding them.

    I showed my secretary DH's fly.

    She didn't like it. It looked too real.

    on the best way to fish this baby?

    Re: 2010 Favorite Fly Swap(s)

    It can be used as an anchor fly Euro nymphing or fished under a bobber. I have found though that most of the time the fish come to the turd, at least this winter. I usually fish it solo under and indicator, its heavily weighted so I find that I dont need to mess around with split shot. I do real well with this pattern on the musky, but have heard this is the hot collor on the D for those that like to nymph.

    I think they take it as a stonefly, I have seen Matt G. Post a similar fly the only difference is that I add the orange band around the throat as a trigger, kind of like a frenchie on steroids. I think they take it for one of these guys...

    Thanks artoflee
    I'll have to give it a try, I thought it may be a stonefly imitation.
    Looks like a trout killer, nice fly.
