Donation Fly Swap (LA Kids Academy)
Jan 16th, 2012, 6:22pm
 
Hi Guys and Gals,
A few months away is the 2nd annual Los Angeles Kids Academy hosted by the West Fork Conservancy  Smiley... I'd like to host a Donation Fly Swap to provide flies for the 2012 WFC Kids Academy Gang.  This is a great opportunity to show your support for the kids who are willing to get into the sport and have an ear for the main goal of the academy which is CONSERVATION.  Wink
 
As Mr Analayator stated last year, here is a list of flies that are effective that time of year...
 
Parachute Adams  
Caddis  
Caddis Pupa  
BWO  
March Brown  
Prince Nymph with or without(BH)  
Copper John with or without (BH)  
Pheasant Tail with or without (BH)
 
 
All other flies welcome, but if you havea pattern that fits the ones described above, those are preferred.  Personally I'm going to tie up some Caddis Pupa that have worked well for me in March and April up there...
 
Deadline:  All flies are due March 15th
 
 
I hope you are all well,
Thanks,
Cris  Cool

Actually I'm going to tie up a pattern that I think will produce fairly well at the west fork instead of the prince nymph.  
Tim.

Somehow I missed this when you first posted. However, if it's not too late, I'd like to tie up a dozen Caddis Emergers. Similar to an X-Caddis but with a showshoe rabbit wing instead of deer hair.
