    Well IBN is our first judge and it is now up to him to talk Jerry and Chris into it. I have a plan put together but need to run it by them first for approval.

    I would be in.

    How about a size 24 parachute adams competition.:rolleyes: :rofl: :rofl:

    I think categories should be similar to recent swaps. Trout dry/wet, Steelhead Summer/winter etc.

    If you want more response, I'd post this over in the main forum. I Rarely visit this part.

    Id like to get in on this one. I like riseforms idea: stages of the insects. I also like the limited materials idea. Let me know when this materializes.

    I like the limited materials. That gets more into the creativity but keeps the ability to judge quality as well.

    You laugh, but I tied a size 22 Royal Wulff just for amusement value once. It caught fish, too!

    I don't think this was the smallest one I tied, but it's the handiest photo of it.

    I think fly shop Kim and fly shop Randy should donate a prize. Wait until you get the rules

    Will the mods be the only ones who can view the submitted entries?

    I am not experienced in tieing yet, but would love to see what is entered when this is all settled...:)
