    I'm in the mood to tie up some soft hackles and thought I'd host another swap.

    This one is for any type of soft hackle trout pattern: traditional spiders; flymphs; or other collar-style hackle patterns intended to be fished subsurface.

    Let's stick with using feathers for the hackle, not crosscut rabbit strips or other furs sometimes tied collar-style.

    Open to a dozen tyers with a deadline of February 1.

    Anyone takers?

    If there are any spots left you can count me in. if not I can be a standby. I tie a mean March Brown Flynymph and best of all it's Tried and true. It's one of the first patterns I learned to tie.
