    Im looking at maybe putting on a steelhead fly swap for wet flies (winter run focal point)?? Anyone up for it??

    EDIT: if this becomes a GO, I will be tying a double egg pattern (and I dont want to hear any smack about using egg patterns;)).

    Alright, its official. Here are the rules:

    #1 steelhead flies only
    #2 wet flies only (no bombers or dry flies)
    #3 no spey patterns :p
    #4 I dont care what kind of materials or how they are made
    #5 instructions are not reuired with your fly, just the fly itself....if you want to include a tag and instructions for tying and fishing feel free, but its not required.
    #6 due date is September 14th(same as streamer swap for those involved) 3 1/2 weeks to tie
    #7 12 tiers total.

    any questions :dunno ??

    oh and one last thing...heavily weighted flies rule :thumb !!!

    Hey, don't you kinda contradict yourself on 3 and 4? First you say no spey flies, then you say can be tied anyway you want with any materials. What if I, umm, make a fly with spey feathers, spey style, and call it a Green Butt Skunk???? :p

    I'm game. Just finishing one on my board, then doing one on another board, why not do one here too? LOL

    LOL, I thought I was banned??? ;) I think I may tie a REALLY webby green butt skunk actually, since we're not allowed to tie speys. :p Not sure yet. Depends on my orders. Usually once I'm in tying mode, I simply add another dozen while I'm doing it. Just got done tying a load of wogs. But not sure everyone wants those. LOL

    We'll see. Have a pattern I might do.

    Since I don't tie and I like your flies. How about giving them a snake fly. From what I have seen about it, it isn't a spey fly.

    I want in. I want in. I've gotta get in.
    So I take a nap and when I plug this wire box in, I see this list as long as my...leg. Need a lottery here to be fair, Paddy.
    I will tie my famous Bob's Indispensible Dispensible, a fly that is very practical for runs were you snap off a lot of flies but you still want to fish it. You can tie several dozen of these in a matter of minutes. Good as anything else at times.
    Bob, the still napy.:rolleyes :rolleyes :rolleyes
