    I'm up for it. Is it one pattern or several, number of flies to tie for each pattern, and due date? Should be fun!

    I can handle 20, but if other people only want to do 10 that's fine to.

    Tying 10 flies would work best for me. Can tie up a floating/skating candlefish pattern which I have come up with. It is kind of big and ugly but it gets the attention of fish.

    Do Salt water poppers count or can I get by with a Liquid lace Minnow pattern? If you want 2 different patterns I could do 10 of each.
