    there has been a butt load of swaps going on and i'm sure that a lot of you are maybe tied out but i thought i would host another one anyway even though i told myself i wouldn't for awhile. i can't stop thinking about hitting the small creeks during the summer months and throwing dries of any sort. i have been dabbling with some ant patterns since i have never fished an ant. here's the deal, 10 tiers tying 10 patterns of any terrestrial but it has to have some sort of foam in it even if just a little. a problem i have run into is some people not addingself addressed envelopes or a couple of bucks to mail the flies back. not that big of a deal since it only happened a couple of times, but make sure to do one or the other please. due to all the swaps and maybe some people needing a little down time i'll make the deadline may 30.

    I'm in for foam beetles.

    Question (which might be stupid...). Are we putting strike indicators on them, or does someone have a preference?

    Thanks so much!

    as long as the fly has foam then you can tie it however you would like.

    bumped the date back to the 30th of may due to just finding out i will be out of country for a couple of weeks. the sooner the flies get to me the better.
