    My first fly swap too. Is there a secret handshake?

    Looks like there is room for 1 more. If so, I will commit to a chartreuse sparkle leach that has been fishing well this winter. If we're doing 2 patterns, I'll pick a second.

    Thanks Ira

    My first fly swap as well. Looking forward to new patterns.

    I'll add a red-cheeked buzzer - my second most successful winter fly. Thanks again, Ira, for running this swap. Looking forward to expanding my winter stillwater tactics with new flies.

    I may have jumped into your spot Blue... unintentional. If this is closed you're welcome to take my position Blue.

    Don't know how I missed you Blue. Stay in and folks can tie more or someone is bound to drop out.

    I am game for tying an extra for blue. Blue sparked my interest in leeches so i will tie a chironomid of some sort and a leech of some sort. My two go-tos for winter....

    Blue is sooooo in. With 14 tiers, you only need to tie 13 (unless you want me to send you your own fly back or you want to have me randomly send out extra flies to other tiers, I like that, I may just throw in a bonus fly or two for fun.

    On other ties, the ones involved would tie the number of flies as people. The extra flies were then given to someone in need or whatever.
    We did one once where I auctioned off the box full of two fly ties and I sent the money (which by the way ended up $200.) to Orvis which doubled that amount for CFR. Or we have made up a box for some member on the forum. Just a thought. What is one more fly.

    I like this idea. If someone ties extras, I'll find an appropriate way to disripute them back out to the universe (don't worry not on the end of my line).
