    'We' as in you or 'we' as in all of us?
    It's going to be up to the individual tier. I think most are going to tie trout flies, but you can tie up a bass pattern.

    I meant as in me, but then i re-read and realized you said that it was a trout fly swap from the beginning. I'll tie a trout fly, i have no problems with that.

    I haven't even started yet. Well, I've started in a way I guess... I've tied about a dozen different patterns but haven't found one I like enough to use for the swap....

    I'm not really into the technodigitalametimagryical........ stuff. My digital camera is a piece of crap and won't really do the trick. If any of the guys have picks?

    I've only got Mritari's and Mike's flies so far. Both of these are stoneflyesque. Well, maybe Mritari's is a little hopper like. Seeing Mike's 'Amy's Ant' made me change my plan. I had started to tie up some stoneflies like his, but I didn't want to be put to shame. :beathead: I'm planning on going with some beetles right now, maybe, instead.
