If there is any interest and with summer coming up, i thought there might be some interest in what would really be a terrestrial or something similar/dropper set up type of swap. i know there are several swaps still going on so i wasn't sure about this one just yet, but the deadline wouldn't be until the end of june, maybe the 30th or so. being that each individual would be tying 2 flies we will keep this swap to probably 8 people.

we have:
myself - mine r done
chadk - flies are in
ringlee - flies are in
toddsbernina - flies are in
james mello
rockstar caddis - flies are in
nova
gitto wales

I like the idea. Count me in. I will be in Alaska for the summer and leave before the deadline. We can figure something out.

I am assuming chad that your post means you are in and if that is the case then we have 8 and will call it good. 1 terrestrial and 1 dropper of choice, prefferably something that would fish well during the summer. most here know how a swap works but for those that don't, everybody will tie 8 sets of flies and mail them to me, including a couple of bucks to mail them back, except nove and rockstar, i will just give them theirs on the river. gitto wales you will have to find out what the shipping cost is to mail yours here and include that amount for me to mail them back. once i have all the flies then i will mail them back to you. remember the deadline is june 30th so we have plenty of time to get them done. i will remind you ladies on occassion that we are in the middle of a swap. the sooner they are done the sooner you get them back. if i have forgot anything then let me know. jerry is your fly pattern implying anything? i will pm everybody my mailing address
