    I got the idea from another board I visit and participate in. The flies are tied on a safety pin. I posted a picture of one in the gallery and Chris thought they might make nice gifts, I agree.

    Here's the deal, swap is open to 12 tiers, everyone ties one fly on a safety pin (your choice of fly and size of pin). Mail the flies to me so they are in my hot little hands by January 15th with a SASE or postage. I mix them up and send you one fly back.

    Any takers? First 12 are in.

    Scott, Appreciate the effort, but I think I'll call this one off for lack of interest. Maybe nxt year, a little earlier in the year.

    Nope, not me, Jerry. I got the idea from a guy on FAOL. By the way, your buddy Mike at Red Shed get me into a new TFO spey rod (6 WGT) very a very reasonable price.
