    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

    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!

    I'll be busy with the CCA banquet today and tomorrow but if you're going to be in silverdale or poulsbo we might be able to meet up so you dont have to ship them.

    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.
