    Got Randy Knapp's pattern today, what a fish catching pattern this is. Will post it up on the Best fly swap gallery tommorrow. Right now the table is being used to tie my leech flies. Might have to get the dust buster out to satisfy the wife with feathers blowing everywhere. LOL

    Once it's posted Randy be sure to add the recipe unless you want to keep it top secret.

    I am working on mine. I have half of them done now. I am a bit slow:beathead: . I have decided on gray wulffs with moose mane tail and wings. I hope to have them off by the weekend.

    I have never done a fly swap before. I want to, but don't know if I can. I am busier than hell these days, any consequences for dropping out?

    Flogging...Drawn and Quartered...you know all the same things that were IN at the begining of the 19th century. I mean, those techniques used by the "civilized" parts of the world at the early part of the 19th century.

    Excuse me,,,I have been reading Barry Lopez and Zinn of late...

    NEVERMIND... I guess i skipped over the directions where it said how many to tie. Then i reread after i posted this.

    so how many flies am i supposed to tie. Is it one per person or two?
