    Anyone know if the swap is still open? A little late I know but I didn't see it until today.

    That's pretty cool. It Looks a lot like a couple of others I've seen so you must be on the right track. It should fish.

    I would be up for that, the Saltwater arrival in our area is August, Fresh water S rivers open Aug 16 and should be RED hot by the first week of Sept. I have a pink and white egg sucking leech that plays hell with them....

    I would like to know how many are in and when we need to be done tying....

    I've finished my other swap committments, had a nice fishing outing, met a bunch of WFFers, collected my materials for this swap and am ready to become one with the vise. I'll get mine done this week and get them in the mail.

    Done with 10. We need to tie 11 or 12? The last one will go on a size 10 scud hook due to the lack of SS-15's...

    Christ, I'm behind Connor H. I am now a pathetic little man. I'll have mine done by this weekend and in the mail. Steve, have you sent me an address? I don't recall getting it yet.

    Finished, they will be in the mail by wednesday. They are a little bigger than I was wanting to tie, I tied these on a size 4. I have no expierance with pinks so hopefully they will catch some fish.

    Hey Sean k,
    They look good to me. If I was a pink, I'd be all over that.
    I can't wait to fish it.

    There are twelve in the swap so send eleven. When I set it up I didn't think about a baker's dozen for twelve flies.

    I think I may have to start all over. Kerfwappie's flies arrived yesterday and all I can say is that the bar is really high. If they fish as well as they look, it will be a great run. Thanks for the great job Eric!

    Alright all, found a couple of photos of a sample I wanted to try out. Here is what it looks like. I finally sat down and tied some up. I hope they'll do, they look pretty flashy.
