    Ok, this will be a first coordinated swap for me, but this is one of my favorite dry flies. I'm sure this has been done before, but the weather is warming and we'll be using these soon enough. I'll be tying a dry parachute pattern on a 14 or 16. I'm interested in others dry fly patterns, but a few nymphs are fine with me also. Any takers? Deadline of March 15? or suggestions there. 10 to 12 tiers WANTED. REVISED DEADLINE WAS MOVED TO MARCH 22 AND IS FLEXIBLE.

    SIGNUPS ARE CLOSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!

    scottflycst: Quill Body Emerger
    dryflylarry: Parachute (of some kind...)
    cabezon: Biot-bodied Callibaetis Parachute
    Mike Wilson: Bean Bag Emerger

    Larry,
    I'm interested but might not be able to make a March 15 deadline. Let's get some more interest and hear from others what a makeable deadline would be. Maybe 3 weeks from the starting gun? Just an idea.
    I love mayfly freckles too. Lotsa good memories from those little critters!

    Larry,
    Sounds good to me. I'm thinking emerger. What's your thoughts on a collection of styles for this swap?

    Well, I would like to see maybe the following:

    Someone's Chopaka May style
    Gray Quill style
    Comparadun
    Nymph
    Emergers
    Parachute (I'm doing one of these)
    I suspect there could be a couple variations on wing style / body style ie, maybe goose biot body... Maybe looking for a little innovation, but not necessary. Be nice to get a couple of each. ANY TAKERS?

    Allright Larry, you've talked me into tying a quill bodied emerger. As a matter of joy, I'll send you a series of Callibaetis from nymph to dun. Colors to reflect the genus found in the clear waters of "the dry side".

    Ya'll better hurry and sign up! There's great topwater action right around the corner.

    I'm in with a killer biot-bodied Callibaetis parachute that has consistently produced.

    I tie a bean bag emerger that I learned to tie while at Chopaka from a game warden. It is a hares ear with a bean bag added to the wing case. It is insane when a callibaetis hatch is comming off. I will tie this in a size 14.

    We could possibly extend the deadline to the end of the month if need be to get more tiers. Otherwise, we could each receive 2 flies each from each tier. Just a thought. Shall we give it a few days more?
