    there has been a butt load of swaps going on and i'm sure that a lot of you are maybe tied out but i thought i would host another one anyway even though i told myself i wouldn't for awhile. i can't stop thinking about hitting the small creeks during the summer months and throwing dries of any sort. i have been dabbling with some ant patterns since i have never fished an ant. here's the deal, 10 tiers tying 10 patterns of any terrestrial but it has to have some sort of foam in it even if just a little. a problem i have run into is some people not addingself addressed envelopes or a couple of bucks to mail the flies back. not that big of a deal since it only happened a couple of times, but make sure to do one or the other please. due to all the swaps and maybe some people needing a little down time i'll make the deadline may 30.

    I'm in for foam beetles.

    Question (which might be stupid...). Are we putting strike indicators on them, or does someone have a preference?

    Thanks so much!

    as long as the fly has foam then you can tie it however you would like.
