    The 16 and under filled fast so let's go with a no holds barred chironomid swap, hell you been wanting to experiment and make a bunch of other people be your test subjects? Tell us all it fishes great send it out to us and we'll fish it for you. Or you could just tie up a standard bug and go from there. This is one of those cases where size really does not matter. Could be interesting what we get. I'm going to tie some chromy bombers in either size 8 or 10 that work well in BC lakes.

    Let's set a due date for Feb 28th ish. If you are participating in the other chironomid swap you can send both your flies at the same time just mark which are which. 2 bugs limited to 14 tiers, so 26 of the same bug.

    Count me in on this one. Give me a couple of days to select the right pattern but it will probably
    be a zebra midge.

    Hey guys any chance we can let the waiting list folks in and make it 26 bugs vs 18?

    Ira.. I'm up for letting them in.

  17. I say let them in. These bugs are generally pretty quick ties.
