    Caddis, Foam Fly, What Ever.

    Things Are Looking Kinda Grim As Of Right Now..

    Oh Well, Nothing Else Me And You Could Swap A Couple Each.

    I may have to do this as my first swap.

    I can only do one fly decently so if anyone wants some EHC, I am in.

    I Was Gonna Wait A Week (or Until Eight Or Nine People) Showed Up And Then Set A Time. Just Do A Single Pattern, No Specifics, But It Has To Be Bigger Than Size 16.

    I Just Thought Of This Swap As I Was Trying To Tie On A Sz 18 The Other Day And I Was Having A Hell Of A Time.

    So Any Larger Pattern Prefer Trout But I Guess Steelie Flies Are Fine Too If You Want, They Should Be Proven Patterns That Have Caught Fish For You In The Past. Foam Flies Are Fine, I Have Yet To Tie Any Of Those Or Fished Them, But They Are Kinda Hard To Make Small So They Can Be Included.

    First Timers Are Welcome To Join As Well.

    So Far We Have Daryle And Jason. Room For Six Or Seven More.

    Ok, I'm good for a size 16 Caddis if that's cool. Never fished any dries bigger that I'd say is a proven "trout" slayer.

    I'd be willing to do more than one pattern as well if you all decide to go that direction. :cool:

    I'll have a go at this one. I can't see crap even with trifocals, hardly ever fish dry's but I've been wanting to tie up some stimulators to try on searuns. So that's what it'll be maybe somewhere around a 8 or 10.
