    Winter is almost over but them I am not a seasonal tier. I have been working on some feather wing flies and was thinking it would be fun to get a spey fly swap going. So, 6 to 8 tiers (no more than 8), any type of wing and body, the only requirement will be a spey style hackle. The due date will be 30 days after the swap closes. New tiers are welcome to join in.

    DONE

    Marty,

    I haven't done a fly swap for years because I was very disappointed in the quality of the flies I had gotten from most who had participated in those swaps. However, since my employer eliminated my position putting me between jobs and since I've seen some of your work and know that your flies are very good, I will tie Glasso's Orange Heron for the swap.

    I wouldn't mind tying an extra. Plus, have you looked at Cameron's gallery? You know we'd be getting an awesome fly!

    How would you all feel if I tied the same pattern but in 8 different colors. So everyone would get a fly that would be just a little different. In fact if you want to choose your color I would be game for that as well. The wing would have to be black, red, purple, or orange. Let me know if this works.

    I'm okay with getting a different color. Let the artist and materials play.
