    Here's the deal.

    I'm looking for 12 tiers to tie their dirtiest, nastiest steelhead flies. No beautifully crafted Spey flies. No 1-hour-per-fly intruders. No flies that look pretty swinging through a run. I want your egg clusters, leaches, and (dare I say it) rubber worms (or at least a representation there of). I want the flies you tie on when no one is looking and you want to catch a fish. Once we have people signed up we'll pick a due date, but figure sometime in mid January.

    I'm gonna try to tie up a Ringlee egg/milt sac...since he's going worms! Mine will pale in comparison to his, but it should fit right into this swap and Steward Dee's nasty box.

    If I still tied, I'd so be all over this. Grand idea!

    Sweet. Looks like we'll have a good swap. I was thinking about a Ringlee Sack but it looks like Mumbles has that covered. Perhaps an Eggijaun kenobi or some other steak and egg variation.

    Come out of ReTIERment for this one

    I just googled this - pretty funny result

    I see what you did there...

    But I sold all my shit. I don't do well with tedious crafts like tying. I've bought and re-sold collections of tying stuff about a half dozen times now... You'd think I would have figured out that I can't stand doing it. A typical session of me tying is a fly getting half done, then me breaking the nearest breakable object out of frustration.
