    I'll get in on this also. I'm very excired because this will be my first fly swap. How does it work, I'm guessing that I mail them to you Curtis in a fly box with my return postage pre-paid?

    I have 8 of 12 tied up tonight (on stainless hooks also). I'll finish the rest tomorrow night and post pic.

    Go to the main Swap page and read the sticky thread on how a swap works.
    And welcome. This is my second swap in a row. I like them because it forces me to tie.

    I finished mine up on Friday but couldn't make it to the post office on Saturday morning. My wife will be mailing them today. I posted a pic in my gallery.
