    Done!!!

    I haven't seen a fly swap pertaining to glass bead flies so, here we go! I’m really interested to see the variety of flies that might appear. So, here’s the deal: 10 tiers tying 10 different patterns that include glass beads – 2 or more glass beads. The tier can add a bead head or cone head, but they do not count toward the 2 glass beads. Since we’re all busy, I’d like to have the flies to me by May 30. (If there are any schedule conflicts, just let me know!)

    Well, you know the rest of the drill (and if you don’t…then check out this link which has all the details).

    Thanks for participating! I'm excited! Cheers! :beer2:

    I'll get in on this, right now my tying room is occupied by some relatives, had to give up two fly swaps for that, but should be free by the deadline.

    TBD = To Be Determined. Its not an actual fly...they just haven't figured out which one they're going to tie.

    Speaking of...have you guys decided what you're going to tie??? Or are you just going to keep us in the dark until they arrive???

    Guess it didn't go thru, I'm tying a couple for you guys, a simple bloodworm pattern and a Carey special with schlappen instead of pheasant.

    Just thought I'd check in...How's everyone doing?

    Unfortunately for me, my taxes have become a priority, so I haven't had a chance to tie any yet...but we have time...

    Finally found some beads I thought would work, just waiting on some nice black hackle. Oh yeah, the fly is an Iris and Black.

    Last week, tied up a few samples of the stone I was planning. None too happy with the results :hmmm: and will keep refining. Deadline is a bit away, so I wasn't going gang busters just yet.
