    Swap is full... If you want to be on a waiting list if anyone drops, pm me.

    Must say that I am wishing Ron Eagle Elk was still doing the Marathon..

    Thought I would see if there was any interest..

    January - nymphs
    Febuary - streamers
    March - drys
    April - emergers
    May - freestyle

    The deadline is the 25th of each month. I want the last flies out for the stream opener.

    At the end everyone gets to vote for a MVP and I will find a prize. (got to finish to vote)

    Cutoff is 11 + me and everyone ties 12 (or number we get) and gets one of their own back.

    I will post more details if there is interest,

    Ned

    I'm up for it if I don't have to tie anything smaller than a #10. I'm going blind in my old age and I think my fingers are getting fatter. bawling:

    Looks like this is going to be a go.:beer2:

    Here is the list so far,

    1. sharpshooter223
    2. Islander
    3. xdog
    4. robast
    5. twinlakesleach
    6. Zach M
    7. Bullwhacker
    8. Chuckngear
    9. Richard Torres
    10. Eric Tarcha
    11. riseform
    12. ME

    We are full.

    As I mentioned I want everyones flies on the 25th of each month. If you are late (without a good excuse) or absent any one month you will disqualify yourself from MVP or MVT.

    I mentioned that participants would vote. I will talk to Chris and see if I can set something up where the whole board can vote instead (sounds like more fun).

    When this fills up I will pm everyone more info.

    Time to start tying nymphs,
    Ned

    Ned,

    Just wondering, are you asking for these patterns to be for Streams or Stillwater or either?

    Just want to make sure before i start spinning bug puppets :thumb:

    I was thinking more stream oriented, but feel free to tie either.

    This sounds great!

    Put me in if there's still an opening.

    I've been working on a damsel nymph pattern that i'd like to share.

    Do you have a real preference for what we tie??? I have some sweet scuds but I don't know what the deal is for the whole nymph thing... I am set for streamers, dries, and the freestyle deal though.

    That makes 11, one more spot.

    If it doesn't fill by Sunday night we will stop at 11 and I will send out directions.

    Welcome Eric and Richard

    Connor,

    I would consider scuds to be close enough to nymphs. Looking forward to seeing the flies.

    And no, I have no preferences and don't need to know what you are tying. If we get two of the same, it will be a good sign that it is a useful pattern.

    Ned

    Ned, I'm not claiming the last spot just yet. I've been in a bunch of swaps and think I'd like this one a lot...but it is a long committment and I have anti-committment syndrome! If no one else comes forward by Sunday night's closing deadline, then fill that spot with me. I've fished all those types of flies and sure could use some new patterns tried and tested by those who I wish to call my peers. Ed
