    So is it gonna be one or two patterns? I have one done and can send them off now. If it is two let me know. I am in B.C. right now, so I will send them off A.S.A.P. Thanks, Scott

    just one.




    Unless you wanted to do a little side pot type deal where we each tied up a couple more. If you wanted to tie 3 more patterns i'd type up 3 more and we could just do a little 1 on 1 swap.
    I've been doing a lot of tying and wouldnt mind tying up some different patterns.

    Hey dave i tied up ten, but because i am going TDY (military shit) for awhile i will have to send the ten i have. if a couple more people sign up, then there are some extra's there and if not then keep the extras. thanks for putting on the swap.

    Thank you for your service.

    not a problem at all. I have been tying up a ton of different stuff and having fun doing it.
    Do you fish O.P. steelhead, The deschutes or grande ronde? what rivers should i tie for?

    When i come home, i either fish with a buddy of mine on the cow and the satsop, but when i am staying with my family i fish the nooksack. it doesn't really matter to me. if you tied up a fly that you said works best in new york then that would be an excuse to take a road trip. like i said it doesn't matter, whatever i get i will use on whichever river i am fishing at the time. thanks again. hopefully there will be a fair amount of steelhead in the rivers in december. i know that when i did live in washington december was usually a little early for the rivers i fished.

    I'm doing the Polar Shrimp. Will tie in OP size (probably a 1/0). Gotta tie up a bunch for my steelhead box anyways (and another swap). Might as well do them all the same and at once while I got the materials out. LOL.
