    I have one question? Are those porcupine quills for legs? I had looked at flies tied like this and found that some tiers use porcupine quills and heat them with a hot pen for the bend or leg segments.

    The swap was fun. I got caught behind the 8 ball a couple of times. Had to mail one set from Florida when I went to visit my daughter and couldn't get to the post office at home.
    There was a lot of good talent exhibited in this swap. Tight lines to all.

    Turkey Biots. You can use rubberlegs and put a micro amount of zap-a-gap where you want it to bend and it will bend the opposite way of where you applied the glue.

    Kind words of support from the original Marathon Fly Swap swapmeister, thank you.

    Also nice to see input from the undisputed MVP of the last 2009 Marathon Fly Swap!

    I voted for you. Your ties are great and neatly tied, not to say anyone else's weren't.
