    Ok, i said 6 weeks from the close of the swap. I hope that folks can get 6 flies knocked out in a shorter time frame than that. i know 2 of us are already done so we should be good to go sometime in april.

    THE OFFICIAL CLOSE DATE WILL BE FRIDAY MAY 8TH.. I need flies in hand with a SASE by this date. Lets get it done and start fishing.
    thanks
    David

    I've got to admit you guys are making me look like a slacker. I will get mine started and done as soon as I can turn out something with quality. I won't hold all of you up to the May 8th deadline. Just give me a bit of time.

    Okay, so I tied some prototypes and wound up with one that I like. Tomorrow I'll replicate it five more times. Is it a sculpin? How the hell should I know. It has some flash, some olive, some black, a trailer hook loop tied in (slick idea, thanks David!) and that is what your're all getting.

    David,

    I just put mine onto the rotator tonight. Applied a bit of phosphoresent clear head cement over the thread and eyes. I'll try to pack them this weekend and ship either tomorrow or Monday.

    I do have tomorrow off if we're fishing...I can hand them off!

    Thanks David. Got your PM. I'll call if I'm around. If not I'll ship them Monday. I don't want to keep the rest of this tying faster than lightning group waiting for my fuzz ball flies. Good luck with banquet, I hope you guys rake it in.
