    It's been a long time since I've been on WFF, it's been a long time since I've tied anything, and most painful of all, it's been a damn long time since I've been fishing.

    SWAP CLOSED! Tyers - With a TOTAL of 8 filled slots, we will all need to tie 7 of each pattern for a total of 14 flies. Deadline is February 28th.

    Let's get some steelhead treats!

    Sign me up. Small hair wing, and one of my go-to-money-summer-run-marabou-bugs. May be on a hook or a cone head tube. Not sure.

    Um, I was planning on filling up the swap before putting a deadline up, but I suppose it doesn't matter. We already have 6 tyers anyways. Hows about flies postmarked no later than February 28th? That'd give everyone 8 days of rest, even if you only tied one fly per day. Pretty leisurely I think, though if anyone wants it pushed further back, I have no problems with that - we can always finish early!

    Brian Thomas - 2 patterns per person for a total of 20 flies per tyer, assuming we fill up all 10 slots.

    Sorry, that's a total of 18 flies per tyer - 9 of each pattern, assuming a full swap of 10 participants, unless you'd like to tie one for yourself. I am an art student, not a math student.
