The search for the ultimate skwala pattern

My fly tying friends are at their vices already. They're tying skwalas - old favorites and some inevitable new ones. They can't help themselves.

Taken together, that scrap heap of abandoned flies would probably fill a room. But hey - we all had fun contributing to it. The skwala hatch will be here...
