    SWAP IS NOW FULL!

    This has been too good not to continue! 12 total tiers, two flies of the same pattern. That means you tie a total of 22 of the same pattern.

    I'm in depending on due date. Saw the patterns from the last Winter swap and looked like good variety. Pattern tbd.

    Once we have everyone, it will be easier to set a due date, but usually I give it a month. So look to have things done sometime around the 1st of the year. If you start now, that is less than a fly a day, easy!

    Shit. Spare time is rare these days, but I guess count me in. Question: Does it have to be two of the exact same? What about eleven of one fly, eleven of another?

    I've done this in the past and it works well as well, but I always find myself wishing I owed two of a good pattern. I could easily go either way so if you sent two patterns, I'd make it work.

    I'm tying up some thin mints. A size 8 and size 10 for everyone.

    I haven't decided what to tie. What I catch most fish on is probably similar what what Ira is going to tie. I could go with an all white little micro leech I've been trying for my local lake...

    Sweet flies Wayne!!

    I'm tying a balance leech with a black tail and black and red body.

    I think I'm going to tie cone head crystal hackle bunny leeches. One will be white and olive, the other will be blacker than the inside of a coffin on a moonless night

    Travis. This sounds like a great pattern. Is there a link to a fly recipe you can suggest?

    Yesterday I tied John Barr's meat whistle for the first time. I am wondering if these flies are similar. While tying the meat whistle I was thinking it might do well at my local lake.
