    ****Swap full for now. I want to start a group PM and work out timing and how many flies everyone is up to tie. May open it up for more tiers, but gonna go with the group.****

    Here's my thought, each tier whips up some sparsely tied steelhead bugs. No marabou speys, bunny leeches, intruders, etc.

    Anyone game? Not sure how many takers, so 8 slots to start?

    Something a little different...Everyone ties two (2) flies for each other tier. 10 slots means you tie for 9 others, or 18 flies total.

    Put me down Dalan.
    Ill make sure to send them early this time so if they get fucksored by usps again you won't have to hold up the swap for the second batch. Also sturdier packaging this time. :)

    So if we are each tying 14 flies, I will tie 2 patterns, 7 of each so everyone gets 2 different flies from me

    I kinda like two of the same pattern, one for fishing, one for adding to my collection of swap flies.
