    Got my nymphs done... On to the streamers!!! I'm thinkin' slump buster in a barred olive should be a good sculpin for the rivers.

    Thanks for the reply Ed... Dare say you will regret it though....

    I will give you first rite of refusal if we lose someone.

    Instructions will be forthcoming.....

    I was thinking sculpin too. Got my first brown on a sculpin on the Clark Fork a few months back (Double dipping, dry on the way down and stripping back). I also have the skin from my first blacktail just waiting in the garage to become lots of flies....

    Tiny dries....

    Once again credit goes to Ron Eagle Elk. His tax day swap was grand.

    Most I ever swore while tying for a swap....

    well i would be willing to just send one container and have both types sent back at the end of february, if you dont want to go to the trouble of that i'll just send them one at a time. im done with my nymphs and am already working on my streamers-a tube fly- so i figured i would just send them both together. tell me what you think.

    Regretting it already but such is life. Currently I'm not under pressure to tie any flies...three ongoing swaps already have my meager offerings. I'll get in another one soon.

    Ned,

    You're going to get all 5 patterns at one time from me. That is the easiest thing for me to do as i have fishing trips planned & headed to Canada between now & May. Don't worry, i will have everything all nicely organized for you. They should be in the mail next week.

    Nypmphs are in the mail today. Just a warning, these flies are known to catch huge trout. Make sure you have your drag adjusted before you throw them out. I'm not liable for broken rods!! :rofl:

    My nymphs are done and I will try to get them in the mail today. I hope nobody has a problem with a crawfish pattern for the streamer because that what I am working on. I am looking forward to seeing everybodys patterns.

    Tight line regards,

    :beer2:

    Got Bullwhacker's nymphs today. REALLY nice stuff! If this is any indication this is going to be a great swap.

    I must say he also followed directions to a T! Nice work. He also made paid his MVP fees. I heard from 7 of you who were in favor of the idea and no one against it so I will assume this is a go. If anyone has some serious objections let me know.
