    Wow! I like your creativity. I haven't started tying yet because i'm trying to get some ideas of what kind of materials I want to use.
    You're throwing the book at everything.

    I like your second pattern.
    I've been thinking along that line with the hackles except having them only on the sides..

    Awesome patterns all, Rob, tie some up and let's put them to the test...tell me when.

    Yeah, The first beer that the swapmeister buys does taste really good! I think that next face to face swap should include a nice frosty half barrel. Up the ante a bit! :beer2:

    Ben - You mean like a "kegger swap"? Sounds like a good time! Next it will be a destination swap, meeting on some piece of water for the weekend to test out our flies, and of course we can bring our tying stuff to get creative! Throw the keg in there and sounds like good times :thumb: :beer1:

    Full set of sessile tube worms done. I have 1/3 of them with hooks and flouro leader attached. All I have to do is tie up the rest of the hook/leader/perfection loops. I've seen some really creative stuff in this swap. Kelvin, thanks for hosting this one.

    Ed it's swapmaster not brewmaster
    I am not buying everyone beer

    Here's what I did work out though
    we are going to vote on the BEST marine worm pattern either the one you tied for the swap or some other marine worm pattern you tied and you bring to the swap

    best pattern wins a $25.00 gift certifacate to the Gig Harbor fly shop

    in case of a tie (no pun intended)
    person with picture of biggest fish caught on that fly wins

    Kelvin, my drive is long enough I'll likely skip the beer (unless Rob is driving). I dig the idea of the gift certificate. You've stepped up the whole face to face swap thing! Well done my man, well done.

    appreciate an update from everyone on where you are at with your ties
    (according to board that's my job to ask)

    Tides is calling me tomorrow to insure they have room for all of us


    I am gonna take tha day off and hit some south sound beaches that day
    anyone else up for some fishing before the swap?

    I've been thinking about different ideas...so far not many of them have worked out. But I did whip up a prototype this last weekend. I will have to wait until the weekend to send you pics since i didn't take any, and I won't be home until Friday. It's got some red bunny, some black hackle, some grizzly and a stinger. Use your imagination...:D
