    So I sent messages out to make sure everyone still want to be a part that have said something. If I didn't send you one it's because you asked to join in the last few days and I figure you still want in. We should have between 8-10 ppl I will wait to see who all gets back to me.

    Fly swap guide lines:

    As soon as I find a exact number of ppl we will go for a month after that. I figure that gives everyone enough time with there lives to not feel rushed.

    Flys can be any style if TROUT fly. You make x number of the same fly. Toe tag them with what the fly is, size, and who made it.

    They will be sent to me after that month with a self address return envelope so I can return to you your flys from the swap. If someone drops out I will let everyone know and we can take it from there. Maybe someone will want to step up or maybe I can depending on how fast I knock mine out.

    Everyone please remember that most of us are some what new to tying and this could be are first swap. I will also check in with everyone from time to time to see how things are going and please feel free to do the same. I am trying to make this fun for everyone and a enjoyable experience for everyone.

    So I'm just wanting to get word from everyone and we will kick this off!!!!!

    I'd like to give it a go if there is a spot open.

    If there is a level before 'beginner,' that is the level I'm at. I just started taking a class this month.
