    Holiday winter steelhead swap (now closed)

    Seems time for another winter steelhead swap and with the coming shopping season we will need some bench time versus all the mall time, no? It's been awhile since I participated in a swap so I am due to grow my collection.

    I'd like to keep this to late winter/spring patterns ,whatever you decide with that in mind.

    Also with the stress season in mind lets keep this open until January 15th. I myself will be fishing quite heavily the next 5 weeks so I need the time as well.

    16 flys each, 16 tyers (including me) with toe tags attached recipe if complicated, special beverages required for tying

    :beer2:

    thanks :thumb:

    Let's see, I'm hosting two marathon swaps and tying for two other swaps. Oh heck, whats one more. I gotta get rid of some stress anyway. Don't know what I'll tie yet.

    LOL REE, your always in one swap or another, no? glad you can do it.

    I will be gone fishin until next wednsday so if we get 14 tyers between now and then or more we will just take the 1st 14. I will not be able to access the board to officially close the swap until then.

    Not sure yet what I will dress. :confused: I may take the opportunity to dress some of my 1st tubes.:cool:

    Okay, I'll join the fun! Haven't done one in a while and this one has plenty of time to get things finished.

    Don't know what I'll tie yet. Maybe a egg sucking leech or a spey style fly.

    Still can't decide what to tie.. soooo, I used this swap as an excuse to order a bunch of new stuff to tie with. Of course, once I was placing the order, VEE had to get her order in for some new stuff too. Now I gotta take out a second mortgage on the house.
