    Only problem is that I have so much other stuff on my floor that it all looks like shadow... Apparently I need to clean, but hey I'm in college, and whats a vaccuum for?

    Oh, and it was only my tie that I dropped, I have all the others safely stored away ready to be copied later. :thumb:

    Magnets are handy in these situations too. Especially when your tying desk is over thick carpet like mine.

    I got my flies yesterday too. Holy cow I have a long ways to go. I realized I'm going to need a mangnifier if I really want to get serious with these smaller sized flies.

    Thanks for a great fly swap and being open to newbies.

    Nice job everyone - I still haven't been able to pin down a favorite from the bunch...

    Chad,

    Don't feel bad buddy, I use a magnifyer to tie all my flies. I have the one that came with my OTT-Light. VEE uses the Mag-Eyes when she's tying.

    Any Newbie that's willing to jump into a 20 and smaller swap is Okay in my book.
