    Me too ;) I'll be in :)

    I'll take a look at what's out there, but I'll do either some pink shrimp thing, or perhaps some high visibility white and pink (or bright) leech....

    Davy,

    I'd like in if you'll have me. I have paritcipated in swaps before but this will be my first steelhead swap. I hope I can at least come close to the quality that the other tiers will bring to the table.

    Davey,

    Don't let Warren fool you. I've seen many of his flies, and fished a few of them too. The guy can dress a hook!

    Is there one more space? Or I'm counting wrong? Well, anyway, if they's a space, count me in, please!
    Long winter started here in AK, so some time is available to spend tying!

    based on the responses then we go with 16 tyers, so 16 flies each guys, Romko your in !

    Have fun, in the near future I will post a list of what everyone is tying.

    If my Weaver skins get here in time I will try to do some of my feather bodied patterns.

    Hot news :thumb: - just in- Mike Doughty has informed me he is tying a blue&black marabou "thing" , personally I like flys named "thing" they usually are the ones that catch fish.

    Then there is the official "Thing" which a friend of mine named Bud Guidry posted on another board.

    Thought you all would enjoy seeing this one;

    Damn! That's one nice "thing" fly! I still have to decide what to tie up. Thinking of a purple peril or something along that line. Definitely a spey style fly. Davey, I'll let you know for sure in a couple of days!

    Now the pressure is on!

    Dang, there goes Warren again, making things difficult for us underachievers. I bet he even has nice toe tags too. Talk about sucking up to the swapmeister, extra flies? Are you serious?

    Way to go Warren. Mine won't be done until Monday, so ya beat me.
