    For your "not so funny remark" I hope 5 minutes before dusk you get a 10 minute knot in your leader!!!

    Thank for the link though...

    Hope my joke isn't taken to seriously. I hope you all post your nymphs as you tie them.. I love me some nymphs!!!!!!!!

    Well, if there's room in the swap I'll partake. Not sure if I'll be able to do the face-to-face as I live in Idaho. But if I'm in town when it happens then I'll be there. I'll most likely tie some dry flies.

    If not too late, I'll join. I'd most likely tie up this beast, which actually gets a lot of attention in fast water. Note I refuse to waste time adding antennae.

    Count me in if there's still room. I will likely tie some sort of nymph or soft hackle. TBD.

    I usually fish a big foam dry pattern on the Yak and sometimes use that for searuns but usually swing/strip big soft hackle Knudsen's spider-type wet flies for them. Not sure which to tie. I think it would be nice to achieve some balance in the group between dries, nymphs, wets.

    I finish my summer class on Wednesday and have a move coming at the end of this month. I'm hoping I can get them done the last week of this month, if not it might be the second week of September

    Too much fishing to tie flies that I didn't need yesterday. I'll get 'em done though.
