Got you down Randy.
MNFLY is in. One spot to go.
So far we have:
1. Daryle Holmstrom
2. James Mello
6. Don Stracener
7. Cameron Derbyshire
8. Stephen Forrest
10. Randy Knapp
I'll take the last spot if it's still open.
You got it chadk .
Swap is now full, will post details where to send your creations later.
Ok, rules, just tie something YOU think will catch trout in still waters. Let your imagination run wild. If you like to tie buggers, leeches, bwo, scuds, just vary your materials from the standard ties.
My snail mail is:

Mount Vernon, WA 98274
For any new tiers here be sure to read the fly swap thread above, and make sure to have your name and address on your fly containers.
Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm, now where do I get those root beer colored beads?
Forgot to add June 15th is the deadline.
OK I decided what to tie. Stillwater flies.
I am doing a brown foam damsel nymph. Got 7 tied right now. This one is fished on a sinking line. It floats good so the fly should stay above the snags.
Finally got all my dozen done. I'm mailing them this afternoon. I've posted a photo of my pattern in my gallery. Please enjoy!
Got them today Cameron, will keep the suspense up until the close.
Got Camerons the other day what a nifty tie, he already let the cat out of the bag though. If you don't want to see what you get don't peak at his gallery.
Got them in the mail yesterday, hope they work for you guys! :hmmm:
I got creative and incorporated my dogs hair into the fly. Dont worry, shes shedding like crazy so i just pulled a clump of hair off her, so dont call the animal abuse hotline.
Got Dons today, Guess I'll start posting the flies as they come in the gallery. Will post tomorrow.
Going to call it the Stillwater invent swap.
The new invent swap has now less than a month to go, hope everyone doesn't wait to the last minute. Just got some liquid lace from Randy and I'm still experimenting. LOL
Got Stephens sweet pattern today, will post a photo tommorrow when I get time. Less than two weeks to go. My pattern is going to use some new tying styles plus a computer throw a way for flash. If I tie it right I'll be pretty bullet proof.
Just as a heads up I'm still in! I had a kid come out of the wife 7 weeks early and I've been pretty busy with that At any rate, I'll be sending out my flies by the deadline
No problem James, congrats on the new fisherperson, got superflys tie today (might need new glasses to tie it on). MNFLY had to drop out due to a short notice of deployment to Iraq (think we can forgive) Will take some photos of Superflys fly tonight, might have to break out the super macro kit.
