    If you guys let me in, you will all get a nice muddler minnow to throw in with the rest. You can hardly beat a good muddler minnow. It's all I fish with,

    If someone drops out, let me know. Somehow I missed this thread. I've run a couple summerrun swaps. But let me know if anyone drops. May tie one of my summerrun speys. Not sure though. I'm gonna be restocking my boxes anyways.

    Tom - It's the "Sharp Steelie" fly. I still feel
    a little funny about the name - oh well, the darn
    thing works really good!:thumb

    I'm glad this subject came up...should we make our swap flies barbless? I've left mine as is so far, assuming that should be a decision for the end user, but while they're in the vise is the best time to get it done.
    Any feedback?

    i fish them barbless, but it does not really matter if they are or not, if the end user wants them barbless to fish them, they can debarb them... it is easiest to do at the vise, which is where all mine are debarbed. if any one person wants their flies debarbed before they go out to everyone and forgot to id be more than happy to do it.
