    Can you believe the reaction to this swap? It's still a month and a half away and we're talking private room, twenty plus flies in case others show up, extra flies for non-swappers, social phenomina, cults, classics, and it's all because of Chester's original post. Somebody buy that guy a beer!

    Kelvin:

    Wow! I like your creativity. I haven't started tying yet because i'm trying to get some ideas of what kind of materials I want to use.
    You're throwing the book at everything.
