    It's about time someone held a summer steel swap:ray1:. So, 10 tyers, deadline June 16th. I'll be tying Tim Coleman's "The Mover" (photo in my gallery). To sweeten the pot and get some interest in this one, here's some incentives:

    1- A little something for the first person to sign up, - Clinched by Obiwankanobi ptyd
    2- ...a little something for the first person to get their flies to me, Secured by - Hogwrangler ptyd
    3- ...and a bigger something for the person who ties the "Best of Show" pattern

    SWAP CLOSED!

    I know you'll all enjoy the extras I have in mind, but it'll have to remain a surprise until the end of the swap.

    I'll join, I'm not sure which fly yet though. It might be something less traditional if that is ok with you guys.

    Steve S, you are an excellent guesser. I was actually planning on sending everyone that signed up a headband:thumb:. Seriously.

    Hahahaha, yeah right! I said a little something.

    I got Hogwrangler's flies yesterday, so prize #2 is no longer up for grabs. They are beauties!
