    SH69 is banned from the swap!!!

    Since I don't tie and I like your flies. How about giving them a snake fly. From what I have seen about it, it isn't a spey fly.

    Have to think about it and my schedule.

    I want in. I want in. I've gotta get in.
    So I take a nap and when I plug this wire box in, I see this list as long as my...leg. Need a lottery here to be fair, Paddy.
    I will tie my famous Bob's Indispensible Dispensible, a fly that is very practical for runs were you snap off a lot of flies but you still want to fish it. You can tie several dozen of these in a matter of minutes. Good as anything else at times.
    Bob, the still napy.:rolleyes :rolleyes :rolleyes

    Heh if it's alright with everyone I would like to tie on up. I've never done one of these before, so you'll have to take me thru the red tape.
    If it is okay, I would like to tie a version of the green-butt skunk.

    Oops I see that fly is already taken...how about a version of the inland purple peril

    Man, you trying to kill me Jim????

    Those snakes are a BEAR to tie. I was fed up after my third one. LOL. They are a pain in the butt, let me tell you. Hmmmmm, but I could make a string leech though. Hmmmmmmm, that's a possibility.

    Hal, you and I are the Swap Whores. LOL. We can never seem to get away from them can we?

    I'll leave the snakes to you. :D }( I have two more swaps to tie for (this one, and one of Stew's off our board) and am wrapping up our swap. I think I may do a General Boss for this one. Not sure what I'll do for Stew's though. Maybe I'll do a string leech for Stew's. But could reverse it, eh? Sheesh, too many decisions.
    You can tie these Hal.

    But, I can't tie any of these

    He won't let me tie these either
    [​IMG]
    But Hal would want me to tie these, which I'm already gonna tie you some extra Hal, so don't worry
    [​IMG]
    But maybe I'll just tie this one
    [​IMG]

    I think I'll make him wait, and see the General Boss fly. }( Sorry, was in a silly mood. LOL

    Heres the list so far...only two spots open

    Remember 12 tiers total.

    So far we have the following participants:

    1) andrew
    2) donhouck
    3) nwflyfisher
    4) Steelheader69
    5) mcolagrossi
    6) Obsessed
    7) BOBLAWLESS
    8) harleydeen
    9) jordan19
    10) pwoens
    11)
    12)

    if everyone could post what they are tying so no duplicates are tied, that would be great. Im tying a simple double egg weighted pattern.

    My bad....each tier is responsible for 12 flies

    I apologize for not detailing this aspect.

    Each participant is responsible for tying 12 flies total. You will in return receive 12 flies back, one from each tier.

    Still have two slots open??

    He's afraid to see what a real fly looks like. ;)

    I'll be tying my General Boss. Similar to a boss, but with purple body, red collar and tail.

    Spey flies are now allowed!!!

    ugggggg!!! fine x( , the no spey flies rule is revoked.....spey flies are now allowed. My reason was cause they look sooo 'pretty' that my simple double egg pattern will look pathetic next to your sophisticated spey flies :hmmm
