    After looking through Schollmeyer and Leeson's new book, I'm in the mood to tie some emergers. Anyone want to join me for a swap? I'm thinking ten or twelve tyers with flies due the end of January.

    I'm not the best tier, but if you'll have me I would like to join.

    We've got 8 guys for sure:

    Me
    Cranny
    Steve S
    Ron Eagle Elk
    JesseJames
    SpokaneFisherman
    Randy Diefert
    Halcyon

    I'm not sure if Mike Doughty was in or if his was just a wistful post. A month and a half should give his tying stuff a chance to catch up to him, so I'll assume he's in unless we hear otherwise.

    So the 8 firm plus Mike makes 9 which means we've got room for three more guys plus a possible alternate in case Mike bows out.

    Going, going . . .

    We've now got our dozen guys:

    Me
    Cranny
    Steve S
    Ron Eagle Elk

    Please mark Monday, January 31, 2005 on your calendars as the date for me to have your flies in hand. Note: that's the deadline date I need to RECEIVE them, NOT the date you need to send them.)

    Since there's twelve of us, you can send eleven flies and keep the twelfth for yourself. (An extra or two for the swapmeister will also be gratefully appreciated.).

    So that we all know which beauties you tied, attach a toe tag to each of your flies with your name and the name of your fly. (A strip of paper cut to about 3/8" x 4" with the fly stuck in or taped to one end works great.) Place your flies in a post office-proof container and send them to me in an envelope or box along with a self-addressed return envelope or a stick-on label.

    Please make SURE and include the correct return postage. I get cranky when someone spaces it and expects me to pay for postage.

    In case some of you are motivated enough to tie them over the holidays, you don't have to wait until the end of January to send 'em in. You can mail them to me whenever you're finished:

    Kent Lufkin
    c/o L2D Design
    13343 Bel-Red Road
    Bellevue, WA 98005

    Finally, if you've got to pull out of the swap for some unforeseen reason, please let us know by posting to this thread as soon as possible.

    I'll add to this thread from time to time to see how we're all doing as the deadline draws closer. I can't wait to see what you all come up with.

    In the meantime, Happy holidays,

    Right on. I started messing around with patterns last night. :D Ok, ok, maybe I am a bit of an overachiever, but I am damn excited for my first fly swap.

    Thanks Ron. I sure miss being up in Wa, since moving down to Az. Being in the swap just reminds me of home.
