    In. Intruder, dark and mysterious with the right amount of come and HIT it pink. A shanker, articulated with stinger, maybe the stinger will even be wearing a sexy little dress.
    Not so dark and mysterious unless I tie up two...but pink for sure.

    I'll jump in on this. I have never done a swap before. Not sure what fly I want to tie. Cool if I wait and see what everyone else decides to Tie and then go from there?
    Thanks,
    Josh

    i'm in, but im not sure which fly..... intruder, string leech, or the dirt nasty worm.

    never done a swap before.

    and does it need to be ALL pink? or can it use color combos including/mostly dominated by pink?

    Count me in, mine will be a surprise as well. Marabou fat leachiness mixed with randomness.

    echoing Sean's question - does it ALL need to be pink?

    Pink just has to be incorporated. Pink and purple, pink and blue, pink and black, pick and white... it don't matter.

    Lets set a date for Feb. 20, that will give a touch over a month. Each person ties eleven flies and we are still looking for two people to join.
