    Hi Sean_K

    Seen your post on caddis flies.

    Could you entertain a guy from the UK?

    I have been involved with swaps in the US before.

    If acceptable to you I would like to tie a pupa and an emerger.

    Please let me know I am as keen as mustard and wish I was as good at tying but I do have enthusiam!

    I'm NOT in, but I've been tying some various caddis patterns. I can't make this timeframe right now, but I'll look forward to seeing the ties in the gallery. Good luck all.

    okay, so i finally put some thought into it, got out the crystal ball, waved the arms in the air, and waited for voices. replace the generic emerger and pupa with a olive spent caddis and a z-wing caddis.

    I hosted a Caddis swap and really enjoyed it. Even got some huge steelhead dry patterns.
    I'm interested, but deadline is a little too tight to meet; I'd need another week+ or so.
    Spare time is fishing time during the next couple weeks.....

    Let's have steeli in and extend by a further week. No problem for me as my flies tend to meander over the Atlantic/Arctic.

    extending it a week and getting 2 more tyers works for me, but let's get a couple more replies. some may just have a small window to work with.

    If you all consider extending a week or so I would then enter also...if there is space available. I would need that extra week because I'll just be returning home from the Hoh event and need to tie only during family sleep time. Either way swapmeister and swap tyers, let me know.

    Another week sounds good to me to get a couple more tyers. All your call Sean.

    Mumbles- good to see you found your hat... great to see you found your clothes!

    This is Steamboat, the emblem of the University of Wyoming, and the State of Wyoming. He was the bucking horse that couldn't be ridden in the 1900's. So, unless your hat is very old, I don't think it is yours.
