    Hey guys, I was thinkin it would be pretty sweet to have ourselves a collection of trusty winter trout flies. This swap will be for rivers, whatever fly you have found to be the best fly for you in the winter. Nymphs, Streamers, and Dries should all be included. One pattern a piece and up to 10 people. Anyone who wants to get in to some fishes and warm up their vises are welcomed!

    Deadline will be somewhere around Jan. 1

    Connor,

    Are you limiting it to Rivers only? Or will Stillwater be included?

    I may be interested.

    I would give it a shot, but I'm still trying to figure out what to use out here, and my flies aren't the prettiest.

    Don't worry about the flies, Not all are like the master's of tying! just tie up a couple of easy flies that you enjoy tying and we'll get some back to ya! What do you want to tie???

    I don't get the olive oil thing.
    Is that so after you catch the fish it is covered in oil so it can go directly into the pan? :confused: :D

    :D No, it just something non toxic that fills the tube, puffs it up.

    I would like in also. At least in part because I want to see what a olive oil fly looks like. I would like to put some thought into the particular pattern just yet.

    :)

    sooo lakes it is? haha

    we have chiros, w-buggers, and bunny leeches thus far.... not exactly winter yak flies.

    might as well make it a stillwater lake swap just so we dont all get a bunch of random flies, all flies with one goal would be a better fit. IMO

    for a lake i'll tie my twist on the hale bopp leeches.

    I don't really care what the swap is for. Stillwater or Rivers.

    I will be tying, what else, but a Twinlakesleach Special. This fly will work in either river or stillwater.
