    Eric Denny It's summer time I'm fishing!!

    I was going to wait a couple weeks but got to thinking about it and if I don't start now then spring will be here and I will be off to fish before the run off and wont have time to do another one of these tell next fall. So I am going to do another one now but this time we are going to only tie dry flies. I still want to do two different patterns because that worked well last time. I would also like to make this more of spring bugs,i.e. march browns, stone patterns, skwala, bwo, beastie, but thats not a must for the tie. And you are more than welcome to tie up your own patterns or twist off of these, these are just a idea. So I am looking for 9 more ppl for this so we will have 10 total in the time and you will need to tie 20 flies 2 different patterns and 10 of each. Also a self address stamped envelope if this is your first swap add about .40$ to the return envelope as flies might be bigger coming back than you sent.

    I'd like to join. I'd like to add a march brown with a foam body. And one other fly TBD - maybe a crane fly. More summer-ish I guess.

    Sounds good and they don't have to be spring patterns just thought that would be a good idea!!! But that march brown pattern sound interesting can't wait to see it!

    So I was really trying to get to 10 ppl again but if we can only get to 8 I guess we will run with that. So in less ppl start hoping on this that's the goal if it picks up we will still go to 10.

    I haven't done a swap for awhile, and it's nice to meet others from my hometown. I'm in if that's cool, Eric ? Not sure what to tie, but I need to look at hooks smaller than 2-6s for a change.

    Well we only need a couple more and we can get this started!! I am hoping we can get to 10 but we might just have to run with 8 to get this started.
