    Been a while since we had a good old fashion Steelhead Swap.

    Winter/Spring Swinging patterns, like the Bush Master, Lady Coachman, or Nicomekyl.

    Due Date Jan 15 so we can still tag along on those shopping trips. :hmmm:

    Any Interest?

    I'm in on this one. I haven't decided on a pattern, but I'm thinkin of tying some tube flies.

    Wish the due date was earlier though since I'll be home steelheading for christmas break.

    I'm in. I've never done one of these, so a few instructions would be appreciated. I'll be tying a variation of a blue moon tube.

    I can see I'm in a very worthy set of tiers, I hope my ties will be up to the task,
    have some new materials coming by snail mail that I couldn't get locally. Is it one scotch per fly until Jan. 15 or two:clown:

    Hey Don. Glad to be a part of the swap. Just to make sure are we tying one or two patterns. Im assuming one. I will be tying an original mostly darker hairwing pattern that I like to use in the mornings and evenings and also as a follow up fly. Cant wait to see what the rest of you come up with. Kevin

    Right, we are tying one pattern. Take your pick, 12 flies.

    I am working on some ideas with UV materials and ordered some special stuff myself.

    Your right, a great group of tiers. I can't wait to see what we come up with.
