    Hey everyone, there are six of us and no more interest for the last several days. How about we close the swap and get started? :thumb:

    Romko, what do you think?

    We could tie two patterns, six each for 12, or just 6.

    Romko:

    I am going to have to bow out of the swap. Sorry and apologize for that.

    If you guy want any more tiers, I can tie some good looking steelhead and salmon tubes. I have 2 in mind that I can whip out. Let me know. If I'm too late, I will just wait till the next one.

    So I have never tied a tube before, but received am interested in getting some supplies and giving it a try. Is this swap for masters? Or will you accept my lack of tube experience? Let me know.

    I've been out of town for a week, but here I am back...
    -42F here in AK, cold....
    And as we have 7 people now I think we can tie one more of both patterns for Tightlines too...

    Here is the address to send flies to:

    Roman Krochuk
    PO Box 752572
    Fairbanks, AK, 99775
    USA

    Please include label and postage for return shipping, and a tag (at least one, I can copy them)...
    I do have a special tube pattern for the first set of flies coming in.
    And I think we should not attach hooks as we all have our favourite and regulations might change the hook size too...

    Here are the two tubes, got to finish up two more with eyes this weekend. It's a modified Abel Anchovy!

    The other fly is a Willie Gunn, good pattern for Salmon and I've done OK with steelhead.
