    here is a prototype of the ant. Mike I have seen some of your flys on the site and you are pretty much the man at the vise so critisize pls. What I am thinking is to shorten the wing and move them a bit down the sides of the fly.

    I'm in if you don't mind a fairly newbie tier. I'm thinking I will do a grasshopper pattern, and if we do two patterns I'll have to think up another one. Let me know.

    ok, I think I've settled on my second fly being a spider pattern.

    Its up to you swapmeister. If thats the case I am undecited what pattern I am going to go with out of the two. I need some more loco foam so once I get that and tie a few up Ill decide.

    I'd like to do the swap, if you don't mind having a first-time swapper, long-time tyer in the swap. I'll look over my flies tonight and decide what I'll do.
    Thanks,
    Micah (bouface)
