    Just got a bunch of deer belly hair! Just about done with the marabou swap I'm in, I've got enough steelhead flies to last through february maybe, so I have the time. I'm in, just cause I catch more bass than steelhead anyway.

    since we only have 5 ppl in this swap thus far, how about everyone makes an extra set so everyone gets 2? Is everyone cool with that?

    ok we'll close it at 5 and everyone needs to tie 10, so everyone will get two of each fly. How does March 15 sound for a due date?

    On poppers I use a two part epoxy. I think it's an Ace Hardware brand.

    I'll give the epoxy a try. I also bought some Krazy Glue Gel to try. The gel is supposed to dry slower.
