    I tied a bunch of BananaRama's and Bleeding Minnows last night. Both were really easy to tie and I will see how they work on the Smallies tomorrow. I have tied three of the EPDM Ghost poppers but have yet to fish them. The only add I would put onto the EPDM is a weed guard out of 40 lb mono. I will let everyone khow how they worked. We still need two people or we can cap it at eight and get started. Give me some feedback about the 8 person cap please.

    Thanks, Dan

    Dan, I was considering the weed gaurd as well, but I think it's left off in the recipe for a reason. I'm not sure if it's an issue of where to tie it on or if it's possibly only meant for areas of fallen trees and lilly pads instead of snake grass and weeds. Maybe I'll provide a wire insert weed gaurd and let it be a preference thing for the other swappies to insert or not. Did you tie on a weed gaurd? It looks like it would float pretty high on the water.

    Sorry to do this guys, but I realize I'm going to be pretty busy these next few weeks and don't know if I've got the time or expertise for this one. Maybe next time!

    Dan, In regards to a cut off date, maybe we give it another week. Those that want to get started can go ahead and tie 10 flies [one to save] and if we pick up the other two then great! If not then the tiers have a few of their own or donate to the comish [you]. I figure that getting 80% in 5 days should merit at least a few more days. Just my opnion.

    Okay it's closed. Delivery date to me is the 28th of May. Please send the bugs labeled with your name and the nameof the fly. Also drop in something for postage to get it back to you. I have attached a picture to get eeryone motivated for the BASS! This was caught with a broken rod tip and a small brown and black clouser. I will PM all that are involved my address to ship to.

    Thanks, Dan

    Okay, I'm done tied up some divers. Not as nice as the ones on the top, but they work.
