    Hi all,

    How about a SCR swap with a twist! Please submit flys that YOU have had success with. I'm thinking 10ish tiers depending on the level of interest. Please also post what fly you are tying so we can minimize the duplication.

    Once all your patterns are tied up ship them to me with either a self addressed stamped returnable envelope I'll send PMs to everyone involved with my address.

    Looking at the calendar how does March 1 sound like for a due date?

    Again, please also let us know what fly you are tying so we can minimize the duplication.
    I know I'll be tying some euphasids.

    CLOSED
    Thanks for participating!

    I'd say you'd better change glasses and have another look at the calendar!

    Is the twist the three days to tie?

    Sorry all,

    I posted this last night when i probable should have just gone to bed...

    Thanks for the catch.
    Yes- March 1 would be a little more reasonable.

    May I please join in? I would be tying Bob Trigg's Chum Baby, unless Bob wants to join and tie them. Every SRC fly box should have few copies of this deadly effective fly pattern.

    OK, so I have decided on a fly from Fly-Fishing Coastal Cutthroat Trout by Les Johnson. It's called Bed and Breakfast by Mike Croft. This is a nice little bait fish pattern and should be easy to tie up a bunch.:)

    Are you sure Bob? I'd gladly tie something different.
