    Or at least some variance in the sizes and/or color colton. Just don't want there to be 10 of the same fly.

    Seeing as we are all tying 10 flies at least, no matter how many join, I am going to extend sign ups by another week.

    Just received western's ties for the swap. Whoever gets this box is going to be quite pleased.

    Still time for others to join in. Please sign up and remember that your flies are a gift to another tier here at WFF. No better way to beat the swollen river blues.

    Hey Camo,
    I don't mind you joining a little late as long as you can get your flies to me by the due date.

    colton - There will be a drawing for who will receive which flies, which will happen when I receive all the flies. If you only have a specific type of water that you fish, please let me know and I will try to accommodate your wishes in the drawing as best I can.

    All finished tying. Head cement is drying as I type this. All I need now is the address so these babies can get sent.

    Whomever gets this box should be pleased. Ended up having 20 flies total. I tied 10 patterns. Patterns include some bass poppers, bluegill 1/124th jigs, bucktail streamers, and others.



    Thanks

    Well all the secret santa swaps I have took part in it is fine to tell. In fact most of the time we all take pictures of what we tied....than you have to wait,hope, and pray you get a certain box that appeals to you.

    If I "ruined" the swap for anyone i am truly sorry...

    Whit, I thought I had posted this over the weekend. Maybe too many meds and too much turkey. I finished tying flies for another swap and kept on tying up a ten spot for this swap. Mine are done, dry and ready to ship if you'll take them. If not I'll fish them myself. I had gone on record before in another thread that I had put a batch of Daryle Holmstrom flies on my Christmas Wish List. Totally your call, I have not seen such a swap before and think it is a very cool idea. Ed

    Ed, hop on in and welcome aboard.
