    This will be my first swap, so I'll have to look up the details re sending them and so on. Do I have this straight, I'd only need to tie and send 9 flies?

    I'll add my favorite fly (I've only fished a few so far but this one rocks...)

    Epoxy-head Olive over Chartreuse bucktail over UV crystalflash over white/UV angel hair - I dunno what to call it except "breakfast, lunch and maybe dinner"

    Okay, the more I tie the more I learn. I'm in. I just checked the hackle drawers and I have some plain olive and olive grizzley as well as some plain maroon and maroon grizzley. I will tie a deciever variation with a black head and collar that flow back over the hackle feathers for the body. Anyone got a color preference? I know the olive is pretty standard, but the maroon could be a good change of pace color that many of us might not be carrying. I found this variant of Lefty's Deceiver in one of Poul Jorgensen's books.
