    After looking at all the variations of the 101 GBS thing from the forum, thought it might be fun to do a swap dedicated to just GBS's.

    Will be fun to see what people come up with. I'm sure we'll get people tieing the same variation but thats ok.

    I'd like to keep this small, so start off at 8 people.

    Anybody in???

    In my happy place.
    If you'll accept a total newb to tying and swaps I'll throw in. Looks like I can come up with a variation.

    Thanks everyone. I've updated the list above.
    I got started on tieing last night but nothing solid yet. I'll post a picture up when I get one finalized.

    *Whit - sent you a PM.

    With Whit and Rob added it looks like you are full. If not, and if there is a decent amount of time before the deadline I'll tie up a GBS for the group. If not and you meet face to face I'll come by for a beer. As I recall you bought the last round Mr. NomDeTrout. Appreciated of course, but a bit sneaky!

    Mumbles, I'll throw in a couple more people. let's do 8 people max.

    I felt bad for leaving early on such late notice AND not tieing 2 sets like everyone else. So the beer was on me. Perhaps it was a little bribe so when I'm across the pond, you'll take me out on the beach for some SRC fishing :)

    I just re-read the original post. The guy is taking submissions for additional fund-raising/auctioning. Perhaps we should all tie one extra and send them as a group.

    Really? I'll check out the original post for the 101 GBS's. If so, it would be great to send our's in.
    I'll contact him and see what we can do.

    In the mean time, is everyone ok with tieing 1 extra if everything works out with the 101 GBS auction?

    edit: I just emailed Joel from Royal Treatment Fly Fishing to see how we can contribute to the fund-raising. We'll see what he says and go from there.

    I'm okay with one extra, easy so long as the deadline is not too soon.

    I'll see when Joel gets back to me with when he needs the flies by. I was thinking sometime mid March if that works for everyone. A good solid month, if not we can do late March as well.

    I am bowing out for now as there are some folks who are uncomfortable with my joining at the moment. I believe I have found a temporary solution to the local mailing problems. If anyone wants further information before I join a swap with them I am happy to speak with them.
