    If Mike is in we got 10. If he's not I'm going to harass him till changes his mind. I'm beginning to think summer is almost here, the weather is nice, people will be getting busy, fishing, BBQs, fishing, family reunions, fishing, yardwork; maybe we should stick to one pattern a piece? What do people think?

    i agree, yes i'll play and the reason i asked about the size is that i wanted to make sure that a size 8 wasn't to small.

    'We' as in you or 'we' as in all of us?
    It's going to be up to the individual tier. I think most are going to tie trout flies, but you can tie up a bass pattern.

    I meant as in me, but then i re-read and realized you said that it was a trout fly swap from the beginning. I'll tie a trout fly, i have no problems with that.
