    Hi Sean_K

    Seen your post on caddis flies.

    Could you entertain a guy from the UK?

    I have been involved with swaps in the US before.

    If acceptable to you I would like to tie a pupa and an emerger.

    Please let me know I am as keen as mustard and wish I was as good at tying but I do have enthusiam!

    I'm in. It's my first swap, I'll try to be worthy. Put me down for Chucks C.V.(adult) and some type of emerger.

    I'm NOT in, but I've been tying some various caddis patterns. I can't make this timeframe right now, but I'll look forward to seeing the ties in the gallery. Good luck all.

    okay, so i finally put some thought into it, got out the crystal ball, waved the arms in the air, and waited for voices. replace the generic emerger and pupa with a olive spent caddis and a z-wing caddis.

    I hosted a Caddis swap and really enjoyed it. Even got some huge steelhead dry patterns.
    I'm interested, but deadline is a little too tight to meet; I'd need another week+ or so.
    Spare time is fishing time during the next couple weeks.....

    Let's have steeli in and extend by a further week. No problem for me as my flies tend to meander over the Atlantic/Arctic.
