    I wanted to do a small swap, 5-6 people + me, where everybody ties three patterns - a bloodworm, a chironomid pupa, and an adult chironomid. That way at the end of the swap everybody'll have a full set of chironomids from larva to pupa to adult from each tier, which I thought would be kind of neat because you'd be able to see how the same stages of the same bug would be differently represented from tier to tier.

    Swap Closed

    Alright, 70 views and only two takers? WTF. I think some people should grow a pair, and sign up for the swap.:clown:

    "tying Flies is easier naked"


    I'm not sure I want any of Zach's flies. The visual in my mind gives me the willies....

    But put me in on it, I will come up with something for it.

    I'm done. I will be sending out by the end of the week. I have tied a superfloss bloodworm by Brian Chan, a Chromie by Philip Rowley, and the Midge-X by Scott Sanchez. I will be trying out some of my extras this Friday at Lenice or Nunally.....

    I'm down to the last three of the adult pattern and then they'll be in the mail Monday or Tuesday.

    EDIT: Dropped them in the mail the morning of 4/1 at the downtown Seattle post office so they should arrive soon.

    Alright guys, it doesn't look like we're going to get that final spot filled. So, if you've already tied an extra set and sent them in, I'll just mail you back the extra set with the rest of the flies. Sound good?
