    It's gonna be that time of year in a couple months...
    Spring opener on your local lakes.

    So here's the deal,

    Each tier whips up TWO of their favorite lake flies.
    Each tier will pm me instructions on how to tie AND effectively fish these flies.

    Hey Backyard (Chris),
    Count me in. How about a clouser pattern and what I call a "crappie killer". It is a variation on a beadhead olive bugger. Awesome for spiny rays.
    thanx, gridkid aka Shad Clark :thumb:

    I've either wussed-out or missed out on previous fly swaps, but this is one that I ain't gonna. Count me in on a Motley Marabou Leech and an olive and peacock Carey Special. The first one ain't much to look at, but I've caught more fish with that one than any other. The latter one is simply a classic that no one has taken. Besides, they're easy enough for this fly swap first-timer.

    Black Doc Spratley and a Spruce or a Deep Water Chironimid pattern that's been working early and late season the last few seasons. I'll let you know.

    Count me in on that one.

    Not sure what I will tie but you can bet it will be shiny and brightly colored. More of an attractor pattern but it works well.

    I sent you an email. If there is still room, I'd like to be in. I'll tie my night leech and a flash body carey special or my big white thing. All three worked wonders last fall.

    Hey everybody,
    The two flies that I said I would tie are done. I am in the process of trying to decide on at least one more pattern. I still have about a month so I'll find something else. Any suggestions? Either post them here or send me a PM. If everyone gets done early I will send my flies early also.
    thanx gridkid aka Shad Clark :thumb:

    I guess I've always done my math differently. 15 tiers which includes me. Why do I need to tie a fly for myself? I tie 14 of each fly for the other 14 folks in the swap. That's 28 total. Am I somehow wrong here? Don't worry about sending one of mine back to me.

    You're right IRA.. but for the sake of not having to explain the process to the uninitiated. I just say tie as many as there are swappers.. plus the swapmeister wouldn't mind get some extra flies :thumb:
