    I will give you guys plenty of time. A monthe or so. June 20th sounds good, if you need more time let me know. They just need to be sent by June 20th.

    I'm in, but don't know with what. Haven't done a swap in a while and need to tie up some stuff anyways.

    I'll let you know what in a few days.

    I finally reply in time for a fly swap and it has my name on it, even better. I'll tie a killer caddis, the fly that brought me my one and only brown trout, from MT's Gallatin River.

    Can we hold it once we get to 12 tiers?

    If you are still looking for participants I will throw in on this one. Probably with a small prince or custom if you prefer.

    From all of the insults that I got from me trying to join a fly swap and me being who I am and very slow at tying I have decided to drop out. I'm sure that you can get another person to tie in my place. Besides I'm just not in the mood to tie now and I'm not even in the mood to fish either.Just seem to be getting to old to do anything anymore.

    But maybe if I get out of this mood that I'm in I will try another one.

    Oh man are you kidding me! Damn I was excited that I was going to actually get a fly from you. what the Heck! I am disappointed and I ain't joking either. Here I was thinking I was actually going to be one of the few who ever get a fly from you. well all I can say is I am totally bummed. :( :( :(

    Ditto. No need to drop out, I'm no speedy Gonzales either. Haven't you heard the slow and steady wins the race. I'm so damn slow I haven't even decided what to tie yet.

    Any space left?

    Wow, what a response!

    If you still have room, I'll participate. If not, I'm up for the next one. Or, alternatively, since you have received such a response, maybe the bunch can be broken down in to two beadhead groups of 10 or 12 each . . . ? Two groups wouldn't be any more difficult to organize than one. But, it sure would be a lot easier for participants to tie 10 or 12 bugs as opposed to tying 20-24 bugs.

    Just a thought.

    By the way, thanks in advance for the efforts!

    Alright richard, your in. We only have 10 i think though. I think we will close it at ten. It is closed! That is unless old man wants back in, then it will be eleven.

    Sweet! :) BTW, does anyone have a preference on color for the deep sparkle pupa? I mentioned olive, but I can do any color if there is any preferences! :)
