    I'll bite, that is if you don't mind shipping North. No hard feelings if you want to stay in the US with this one.

    Gulp, sure, I'll have to look up some patterns in a book or two. Whatever the swapmeister says this swap tier will do.

    Are you doing saltwater streamers or freshwater? I'd like to join in either way, just want to know what to tie.

    I'm in with something articulated or a tube. Can peeps state what there making so we don't get a bunch of wooly worms and bunny leaches... two flies sounds great.

    I'm in with two tubes. Drain's 20, and a variation of a classic I have taken the liberty to rename Ineedabeer.

    I think that there is a white bugger and a makula (spelling?) that I'd like to tie up. If there are any special streamer requests I'll give it a shot. Tyingbugs...what types of streamers do you use in MT...I owe you something that will catch fish for you locally.

    So there are 8 of us and we're tying 16 flies?(2 sets) 14 if we don't want our own back, correct? Just a suggestion but the original call for 2 patterns was because of low numbers involved, now with 8 tyers it seems like more than enough to only tie one pattern.
    Let me know swapmeister.
