    Nice but some ppl won't make them at the same speed and it will be between 8-12 ppl in the swap

    So someone brought up the point that since there is not that many of us if you guys would like to make two different bugs and swap?? I'm game but felt I would bring it up with the rest of you and see if anyone else like this idea or if anyone feels it's to much? If you feel it's two much please pm me and let me know that way know one is singled out.

    I am still in. Even though I have been tying for a couple of years I still don't tie the best flies. We all began with that first fly.
    The thing to remember is have fun and enjoy the camaraderie.

    Eric, I just noticed your thought regarding two different bugs. I like the Idea. Are you thinking about doubling the number of flies (2 flies for each person)?
    I am fine with that as well. Some people think I'm easy.

    I'm game for tying two sets of flies. Lets get this thing going though, I'm a lot less into two sets if it means I have to crank out a ton of flies because 15 people are part of this.

    So I did a final count and believe I talked to everyone it looks like there are 10 of us thats counting brian. I will list the 10 then go through and send everyone a message with my address we'll shot for a month from tomorrow so FEB 25 is the due date if you get them done sooner send them when you want. With my address I will set up the guide lines and if anyone has any problems with them let me know. We ARE doing two bugs as it seems like everyone was interested in that and know one messaged me saying they had a problems with it.

    So the 10 ppl in this thing are
    1. me
    2. Blake Harmon
    3. Bonsai (jerry)
    4. JohnB
    5. Scudley Do Right
    6. Jersey
    7. Plaegreld
    8. whip-lash
