    I like hosting swaps, quite fun. This is it. Tie something , anything that you would think would catch fish in still waters. Can't be a standard pattern, you have to invent it yourself. Guess I'll call it the new pattern swap. 12 tiers.

    How does June 15th sound.

    Can I get in on this? This will be the first one I participate in on this site. I love the idea of "inventing" new flies. My 5 year old comes up with them everyday and is certain he will outfish his dad. I'll have to get out the bottle of whiskey and stay up late one night getting creative. :beer1: Jeff
