    WE COULD USE ONE (2) MORE DEDICATED TIERS!!! WHERE ARE YOU?

    I think it’s time for you innovative fly tying guys to come forward and join in on this swap. This will be my second swap as Swapmeister. Due date would be May 15. This gives you time to do a little Spring fly fishing! I’m sure there have been dragonflies done before, but that’s ok. I think there is room for plenty of innovation here. I will leave it open for up to 12 tiers. I would like to see a few guys tie up a “dry fly pattern” if you’re crazy enough, although, I suspect most will be nymphs. I have heard of giant trout taking dries... :thumb:

    SIGN UPS: ROOM FOR 2-4 OTHERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!LOOKING FOR MORE TIERS

    OK fly punk....You are all signed up. Thanks. Any more takers out there? Most people probably don't want to do more than 10 flies. We can hold it there if you all want. I'm flexible........ :)

    Count me in. 10 or 12, does not matter to me. If you tie 10 you may as well tie 2 more!!!!

    I would like to do a foam dry dragon. I am not by any means an experienced tier, but can get the job done. If you don't mind that they aren't that pretty, I am in.

    P-fitz, what color are you doing? I would like to do blue, as I have blue foam.

    Curtis, can you do a dragonfly instead? I think we want to stick to the same species unless others don't care. I'll sign you up if I can twist your arm to do some sort of dragon....? Thanks. :)

    WOW. You guys are fast. We are still looking for at least 2 more tiers out there. If things move faster, and we all agree, we can move up the deadline date.

    LOOKING FOR 2-4 MORE TIERS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :):):)
