    Two more tyers have signed on so this swap is now closed at an even dozen and pending Sean Engman's confirmation of his entry as a trout fly. Here's who's on board:

    Kent Lufkin - brown soft hackle
    Sean Engman - Clouser deep minnow (Are you sure this is a trout fly, Sean? If you're not sure, perhaps you could choose a pattern most people would associate with trout fishing?)
    Daryle Holstrom - TBD
    Ron Eagle Elk - POP
    John Hicks - Caddis pupa
    Warren Perry - Otter creek candy cane
    Steve S - TBD
    Richard Olmstead - CDC emerger
    Kevin Rudzinski - mallard soft hackle
    Marc Chapman - X-caddis
    Mozart - para BWO
    Steeli - Carey special variation​

    Could those of you who haven't yet decided what they'll be tying please post your choice to this thread asap?

    Look up, Kent! I claimed title to a CDC emerger as my entrant in my second post. In keeping with my resolution to become a better stillwater fly fisher, I'll tie it in a color and size suited to a Callibaetis.

    I understand those desert creek fish can be really particular, so you're going to have to tell us exactly where that desert creek is that this particular fly will work!

    The mailman left me a box full of Warren Perry's beautiful Otter Creek Candy Cane nymphs today. Hard to believe they're tied from only three materials.

    Who's next?
