    Word on the street is I'm done tying for another swap and ready to join another swap. I intend to coerce some cutts into showing me their gang colors & tats.

    I'd love to be involved in one of these. Any room?

    I'm kind've a rookie to the western flies, but i'll add a little midwestern flare into them.

    I hate swaps but what the heck I'll join in. At least I can tie a passable reverse spider. Well, I think I can.

    I suck, but if you are bumping to get tyers, I'll give it a shot. I have all the stuff needed to tie these flies. I have fished them a time or two and intended to tie some up later this year. If you'll let a bumbling rookie with lots of thumbs in, I'm in. If you don't want me in, just tell me, it won't hurt my feelings.
  8. Why not. I have some primo teal that I've had for awhile, kinda small hackles but should do up a size 10 or maybe an 8 nicely.

    Ok, we have 7 tiers, to make it worthwhile lets tie 14 flies so everyone gets an assortment.

    I'm doing two kinds, non standard with a turkey wing .

    Should we post when we're done to get the address or are you going to PM everyone where to send it?

    Got the hooks, and some new chenille today gonna start soon.

    Thanks,

    I'll do 14, 7 of one and 7 of another.

    I'm having trouble figuring out how to make this pattern "different" but i'll give it the good ole college try.

    You only need to make six and six, unless you want to get your own back. I'll post my addy later.

    Yeah I got confused about the two flies for someone or something.

    I tied all 12 today, they'll be packed in a nice clean tin of husky :)

    At least when you catch one it'll have fresh breath.

    I tied six of one color scheme on #6 and another six pack of another scheme on #8. I'll tie some more for myeslf (six tyers besides me, right?). I hope they are not the worst flies everyone has ever seen. I'll do the labels and prep them for the mail. Do I have your address yet? I'll check my PMs.
