    Y'all know that we have many a fly swap and I've been in a couple myself, but what I'm wondering is, has there ever been a fly swap done on a specific fly. What I'm am talking about would be a fly swap done for wooley buggers, okay, and instead of receiving 12 or so different flies we would receive different variations of the wooley bugger. just a thought I would like to do one or be part of one.

    Truth be known...I am running low on wooley buggers.

    Good Idea

    I would go in with ya but I am in the marathon swap an its going to take more concentration and persistance than I have when doing two swaps. Good Idea though.

    We did something similar with Adams a while ago. The swap turned out great! I swapmeistered that one, and I'd do it again if folks showed any interest. I could always use some motivation for tying up some buggers.

    Mine will be the Grizzly Snarl. Tied with Green grizzly tail, sparkle green chenille, Green grizzly hackle and a grey grizzly collar.

    IRA..

    Ok!

    I'd be interested in getting in on this swap. Haven't done one in a while and WB's are easy.

    I'm in.

    To swap-or-not to swap?

    I guess this swap is not going to actually happen? lack of interest?

    Wooley Buggers,heh.

    Well if this is going to happen I would like to get in on it. My fly of choice is a Yellow W/B with brown hackle. I know it works in lakes but I haven't tried it in rivers yet.

    Now all I have to do is win the lottery so I can afford the hooks,feathers,and thread. It's hell on a fixed income.

    So if this is going down please let me know when or what.

    I know I don't do this much but being that it is a W/B I should be able to do these. Or come up with a new twist on one.

    I figured that this had just fell to the waist side awhile back...Well right now I count 6 that are in.

    I think if we can get around 12 tyers here within today or tomorrow I think we should give this a max of 30 days...how does that sound with everyone?

    Okay so far we have:
    Myself
    Irafly
    Papafish
    flylikeIdo
    old man
    Nooksack34
    Diehard

    Can we get at least 3 more folks...with such a simple pattern it should be pretty quick. I'm thinking of setting a 30 day swap. I'll give the sign-up till tomorrow morning whether we have at least 10 or just what we have now. If it stays the way it is now, perhaps we can think about tying twice the number present, any thoughts?

    Bugger Fly Swap

    P.S.
    This is my first time being meister so any input is appreciated.

    I don't know how you guys feel about this but I'm thinking that being tomorrow morning is the deadline for sign-up that Oct. 2 should be enough time to get the flies done, what y'all think? Thats 3 solid weeks to do buggers. Then That following monday I'll ship them out.

    By the way I think I'll tie up a beadhead olive bugger w/ purple hackle.
