    Wow, my expectations are now way high. If I am not astonished, I will most certainly be disappointed.
    I'm in for an early October due date and hopefully meet-up. Not sure what I will tie, but I'm going for bewildering and dumbfounding. Basically, I hope that by the time you are done gazing upon my flies, you will be completely and utterly stupefied and flabbergasted.

    ;)

    For your "not so funny remark" I hope 5 minutes before dusk you get a 10 minute knot in your leader!!!

    Thank for the link though...

    Hope my joke isn't taken to seriously. I hope you all post your nymphs as you tie them.. I love me some nymphs!!!!!!!!

    Well, if there's room in the swap I'll partake. Not sure if I'll be able to do the face-to-face as I live in Idaho. But if I'm in town when it happens then I'll be there. I'll most likely tie some dry flies.

    If not too late, I'll join. I'd most likely tie up this beast, which actually gets a lot of attention in fast water. Note I refuse to waste time adding antennae.

    Count me in if there's still room. I will likely tie some sort of nymph or soft hackle. TBD.
