    Mi amigo, Backyard, posted after the Baitfish Swap...
    "yeah im stoked. there was some really cool ideas up in that swap. Gets me wanting to do a alternative food source swap. Things such as mice, frogs, salamanders, eels, baby birds... etc you know those things you need when fishing that secret spring creek at 1am."

    So here's the proposition, I'll be the swapmiester, it's limited to 13 (dontcha love that number) tiers, and the deadline is March 15 (et tu Brute') to have the flies done, mailed, nailed, no BS excuses.

    Who's in????


    Roper,

    Good things come to those who tie freaky flies...

    Sounds cool, but I don't think I can swing it. Too much other stuff going on in the coming weeks...

    April 1st would be good. I roll back into town on March 10th, so 20 days of tying should be enough, as long as it stays within the 13 tyer limit.

    My dearest friend Roper...why has no one joined?? personally I think it has to do with the post being in the fly patterns section versus being on the main board???? :dunno

    I would be up for it...I would tie a bunny nightcrawler, if that fits the category??

    I posted on both forums...maybe folks are "swapped out".
    Let's see how many want to join in and maybe we can adjust the number of flies. Perhaps two from each tier?? Sometimes you get a really good fly in a swap only to loose it to the tree gods...
