    I'm hitting the Bahamas and Cabo this year, would anyone be interested in doing a warmwater swap of sorts? No strict guidlines, anything from blue water flies, bonefish flies, permit flies, whatever...

    I'll be the swapmeister if I can get at least 5, would like to keep it to no more then 15 or so. Due date March 15th, that gives us around 6 weeks.

    Any takers?

    I'd be game even though I can't imagine when I would ever get a chance at warmwater salt. I'll tie a Lefty's Deciever. I have been using them for Silvers in the salt up here, but I have read that they are a pretty solid general salt pattern. I generally tie them on a #2 saltwater hook. Would they need to be bigger for where you are headed?

    Sounds good to me, I'm going to let this post saturate for a week or so to see if we can pick up a few more participants.

    12?- is that 3 flies, 4 each, or 1 fly, 12 each. Either way, i'm game.

    Lets do this, how about 12 flies each of the same patterns due by the end of March. This will give us all 3 flies from each of us.

    If you can afford to send me 1 or 2$ with your flies for return shipping, if you can't don't sweat it, I'll take care of it. Make sure you include your return address.

    Does this sound reasonable?

    Perfect. I was sweating if you wanted to do it earlier. End of March works perfect for me.

    Those are for halibut, this is a warmwater swap.

    Do you want to join?

    Anil ties some mean flies, that would mean 15 flies each, what do you other 3 think?
