    Hi-
    Someone tried to start this swap last year but it never got off the ground. Hoping for better interest this time. Rules are pretty simple, your fly must be articulated & designed to target steelhead. Lots of room to get creative here. So lets do 10 tiers or less, due date 1 month after the close of the swap. I will be tying an akroyd, exactly like the one in the pic except I will use black schlappen instead of BEP, money is tight these days, sorry.

    Alright, swap is closed. A little bigger than I intended but there are some really talented tiers here so I am psyched. Have your flies postmarked by OCTOBER 13th! Please be on time.

    1. Bove - Sluttyness
    2. Charles - Dankness
    3. Me - 'Royd
    4. Miller - Madness - In Hand
    5. D3 - String Thing - In Hand
    6. Steve S - In Hand
    7. Zach M - In Hand

    If permitted entry into the inner sanctum I'd like to tie an articulated rat fly. I'll start pulling my supplies out and get organized pending the swapmeister's approval.

    Not promising this color. Have to check the foot lockers for materials first.
